Believe it or not, Friday marks the end of the Mayan calendar. And according to the Mayans, this apparently means the world will come to an end Friday.
On the off chance this apocalypse doesn't happen Friday, later that night you can rejoice your survival by jamming to the soothing tunes of reggae bands Judah Tribe and Brixton Saint at World Café Live at the Queen for the Reggaepocalypse!
Hailing from New Castle, Brixton Saint has an updated take on reggae and the band follows in the footsteps of revolutionary artists such as Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Yellowman, Culture and The Clash. The Saint's "outlaw" reggae tells stories of the working-class and spotlights the issues of life, love, politics and war.
Brixton Saint's albums "E Pluribus Unum" (2011) and "The Cure for the Babylon Brain" (2010) were finalists for "Best EP" & Best Album" by a Philadelphia/Wilmington-area act on WSTW's Hometown Heroes.
Lion of Judah
With a style reminiscent of the golden age of reggae, Judah Tribe, of New Jersey, has developed its unique blend of soul reggae. Known for playing at the Brooklyn Museum, Judah is led by frontman Josh David who currently tours with artists like Q-Tip and Little Jackie, and he's performed with Stevie Wonder, Common and Rene Neufville.
And with members stemming from Cameron, Africa, Jamaica, France, Haiti and the United States, Judah Tribe has quickly developed an international following. Their full-length debut album, "New Day Dawnin," will be released this winter.
