Not sure how I feel about Lee Perry on stage. Would rather him behind a mixing board than behind a mic

Perry with paint, fire, and water and a mic is pretty hard to shake a stick at.

Adrian Sherwood with Pinch making their US Debut is really history. This is their only stateside gig. WOW! Adrian Sherwood is a legend (Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, all the most tripped out dub legends, Sinead OConnor) and Pinch is the father of Bristol’s dubstep scene. What a combination!
