I still don't know how i'm going to manage but this week is..

The 2009 Montreal International Reggae Festival on the 26th, 27th and 28th


Frankie Paul will headline the first night as U-Roy and Yellowman's former sparring partner Charlie Chaplin will close out what is being labelled Sound System Night. special appearance by the west island's own Danny Rebel and the KGB***


Dancehall Night is ticketed at 50 dollars but it could be one of the rare opportunities to catch the fireman Capleton in Montreal. Check for Anthony B as well...this night might entice me to grab the weekend pass.


The last night works as a tribute to rocksteady legend Alton Ellis. Sugar Minott is here, and we all know he charted well in the 80's. A personal favourite will also flatline as Sanchez will perform his signature Lovers Rock. Ky-Mani Marley will close out the weekend but one could expect a soundclash on the final night word to U-Roy...

if that isn't enough. Collie Buddz will be at Cafe Campus on the 27th as well. but thats not enough to redirect me unfortunately. My aim is true.

And this all goes down at Parc Jean Drapeau next to LARONDE

so spend your money on this and skim over Osheaga cuz we all know thats a rubbish festival.

and with Stevie Wonder and Kool & the Gang coming through the week after you'll have decisions to make. Hopefully i've put things in perspective.

Sanchez - Chronic

Rodney P ft. Ky-Mani Marley - The Nice Up

Capleton - High Grade

The Matron might have found his maiden.
Time is like Motrin, the Slew is a process for non-believers
But i chose to ride pine when others took jumpers
I passed on candy apples when trophies were waiting in the wings.
And look at me now.
