ARTS Pick: Easy Star All-Stars

ARTS Pick: Easy Star All-Stars

Easy Star All-Stars are a cover band of Jah-normous proportions, but instead of playing another act’s songs, it translates landmarks of pop music history. Over the last 10 years, Easy Star has aimed its roots-reggae lens at Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and The Beatles, releasing Dub Side Of The Moon, Radiodread (based on Radiohead’s OK Computer), and Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Its latest work manages to up the ante, as the band pays tribute to the best-selling artist of all time with Thrillah. The Aggrolites open.

Friday 10/19 $18, 9pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 245-4980.

Reggae in space! Easy Star covers Dark Side of the Moon’s “Time.
