Mikey Dread to play the Cabooze

class=img_thumbleft>Between the recent Stephen Marley show and album, the samples contained on new music from Lily Allen and Brother Ali (see tomorrow evening's cover story), and the resurgence of Mikey Dread, roots reggae seems to be catching the imagination of the non-Marley-loving public again, though the scene has remained strong for decades (see my Jamaican and Caribbean Music Links pages for tons of audio links). Dread plays the Cabooze in Minneapolis on Saturday, April 21. In case you missed it, I interviewed Dread last year about everything from Jamaican radio to the Clash, whose living members recently re-released old recordings featuring Dread's production and vocals.
