As I’m walking out the door, Vernon Reid sends me a tweet about his gig tonight. Of course, the Living Colour and BRC co-founder has several incarnations/projects including Masque and this one with DJ Logic, their "electronica-world music mash up". This should definitely be a cool show. Look at the ensemble: Folks I can vouch for are Jared Nickerson handling low end duties and the wonderful Maya Azucena (look for a quick video interview with her in the next week or so) on vocals. Also, Gaston from Us3 (remember them!) will be in effect.
Also on the bill are Mazz Swift and Brad Hammonds, better known as Brazz Tree, who’ll bring their "new world acoustic rock" to Newark
If you’re in or around NJ, here are the deets:
NJ Performing Arts Center
One Center Street
Yohimbe hits around 9:15PM and I’d imagine Brazz Tree goes on about an hour or so earlier.
If you can’t make this show, check out Yohimbe next Wednesday, August 6 at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC.
