With Jamaican reggae-crossover star Shaggy opening for Bootsy Collins last Wednesday at the Empire State Plaza, reggae fever was already pretty high in Nippertown, but the temperatures ran up off the chart the next day when the Easy Star All-Stars and John Brown’s Body brought the reggae riddims to Jennings Landing in Albany’s Corning Preserve for the latest installment of the free Alive at Five concert Series.
Alive at Five continues today (Thursday, June 26) with R&B Night featuring Detroit soul singer Dwele and Local 518 hip-hopsters Mirk, who will be previewing their new album, Run. Showtime is 5pm at Jennings Landing, and admission is free.
