Mar. 5: Lutan Fyah at 19 Broadway

Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Lutan Fyah grew up only 15 minutes away from Kingston, the center of all reggae music. But those meager miles have translated into the reggae singer’s most notable asset, in that he is no slave to tradition. (Grace Jones was also born in Spanish Town.) Not only has Fyah reworked songs by the Fugees and Dr. Dre, but in 2009 he teamed up with UK dubstep sensation Rusko for his upbeat Babylon, Vol. 2 compilation. Better yet, before he leaves for France later this month to play large theaters, he’s dropping in on Fairfax for a tiny nightclub appearance at 19 Broadway. With a vicious attack on the mic and a can’t-stop-won’t-stop style, he’ll be poised to set the roof on fire. Witness Jamaican artistry in action on Friday, March 5, at 19 Broadway Niteclub. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 9pm. $15-$20. 415.459.1091.Gabe Meline
