Event Pick: Antero and Lost Dreads at the Broadberry

Friday, May 29


For nine years, Wylie “Crazy Horse” Jones has been a pivotal player in the regional roots rock reggae scene. At the end of the month, the singer, songwriter and guitarist for local dropping-third merchants Antero is leaving our humble Southern abode for the greener pastures of the West Coast. Sadly, the move means that our longest-running reggae band since Awareness Art Ensemble will cease to be. Before he and his family bid the city adieu, the group will ring its alarm one last time Friday, May 29, at the Broadberry. The raspy voiced singer embodies the subdued soul of Jamaica’s pre-dancehall golden age of the ’60s and ’70s that is his group’s long-time specialty. Don’t miss this last chance to immerse yourself in militant positivity. Fellow Richmond riddim warriors Lost Dreads open. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $8-$10.
