  • Awesome write-up from The Stranger! You do not want to miss this show! "There’s a big difference between bands that play set lists of cover songs at your local watering hole and bands that pay reverent tribute to artists by reinterpreting their material into something that sounds fresh but still resembles the source. Easy Star All-Stars are among the latter. The NYC-Jamaica band—a rotating ensemble led by producer/musician Michael Goldwasser—has worked up dub-reggae versions of select artists since 2003, adding occasional electronic flourishes and tempos to the mix. So far, they’ve delivered (in order of release) Dub Side of the Moon (Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon), Radiodread (Radiohead’s OK Computer), Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band (The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s), and Easy Star’s Thrillah (Michael Jackson, Thriller). The first two are, by far, the best. In case you were worried about any creative inadequacy, Easy Star have also released a few albums of originals, too."
