October of 2010 saw the passing of one of reggae music's greatest voices, Gregory Isaacs. Known to many for the hit single "Night Nurse", his career spanned over 40 years and influenced artists both in and out of the reggae genre.
The folks over at Steppas were lucky enough to record with Isaacs before his passing, and are now releasing a new album as a tribute both to him and to UK dub music.

Decisions, decisions. Great music going on this Saturday! ForQuarters brings their regular brand of booty-shaking house to Red Maple, SEE-I lights it up at Mosaic Lounge with some rasta flavor, and H Street holds their annual street festival in DC. If it were us, which it is, we would check out all three! Come down to DC during the day for some great music, and keep it rolling in Baltimore for the evening with these two great shows. Rest up on Sunday with bloody mary's at your favorite brunch spot. (We suggest Mama's on the Half-Shell in Baltimore or Kramerbooks and Afterwords in DC) Weekend, set and match. Reset for Monday.
