Dream date: In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Chicago-born and Virginia-raised human rights activist Ronnie “iRon Lion” Brandon hosts a reggae and poetry showcase that begins by opening up the mic to anyone who wants to express their appreciation for King. Brandon will recite King’s historic “I Have A Dream” speech, and perform with soul, funk, and reggae vocalist Davina Jackson (seek out a recording of their duet “Love Me”), backed by a reggae band that includes former Wailers’ member Ras Mel.

Saturday 1/18. $12-15, 8pm. The Front Porch, 221 E. Water St. 806-7062.
