    Going to the concert this weekend! I first saw Jo Mersa Marley when he opened for his Dad Stephen Marley at Janice Live in St. Petersburg like 4 years ago for the Revelation Tour. One of the best concerts I have been to. Errrrbody was Irie!

    The concert last night was pretty fun. It was down in Juno at the Abacoa Amphitheatre. Small outside venue, light to medium crowd. Chicken on a stick was amazing, the rice pilaf that came with it was decent too. Drink selection at the concert was weak sauce, it was Bud or Bud light, or select liquors. Good thing I had plenty of IPA's at a couple of the restaurants / bars just outside the venue and had a spliff in my pocket.

    It's a nice little district that you can just hop from one establishment to the next and then go watch a concert on the lawn. Free parking garage too. Mucho convenient. I was able to meet Jo Mersa Marley before the show and took a picture with him. It was Toots and Maytal's show but Jo Mersa was the better performance.

    For some reason the sound engineer couldn't get it right with Toots getting feedback over and over again. There were no sound issues until then, which was weird. By the end of the show, it seemed everybody was drunk and falling all over each other in the crowd. We left while Toots was playing their last song or two.

    LOL I'm sure we passed each other at least once, it was a pretty small place so hard to miss. That's cool though, glad you made it out to see them play. We go to a lot of concerts so anytime there's a good one coming up we get tickets.

    We were hanging out right next to the sound engineer tent BTW.

    Yeah that's my fault. I didn't see your post on Tuesday. Would have said let's pregame at my house and walk over. Maybe next time!

    Yeah man, he sounded good too! The way he was dressed made him look like a cross between Mr. T and Stevie Wonder.

    “Freddy get ready…come do the rock steady…”

    Here’s a smooth and timeless nugget courtesy of The Jamaicans. This one is guaranteed to get your ladies’ hips a-shakin’ the way you like it.

    After all; who doesn’t appreciate a “Boom Boom Festival”?

    I don't. Jamaican type reggae music sucks. It's noise, nothing more.

    My wife and I were planning on going, then plans changed last minute, maybe it was the weather, or her internal temp. If I'd a know ya'll were there we would have gone.

    Kyle, do you know my crazy friend Patrick, he lives in Abacoa, the bartender? You gotta know that cat.
