Weekend Events, 26th-27th

A reminder that Jimmy Cliff hits the stage of the Charlottesville Pavilion (providing, of course, that there is electricity after Thursday night's apocalyptic storm) on Sunday 27th... with Iron Lion opening, instead of Soldiers of Jah Army. Showtime, 7PM. He got good press for his Bonnaroo performance (way down the page for the Saturday review)....

Bedrock of Old Dominion reggae, Awareness Art Ensemble, reunites to perform at the Richmond's the National on Saturday.

And, the 18th Annual DC Carribean Festival commences with their parade, Saturday. If you were spellbound by the story of the Mardi Gras Indians on HBO's Treme... you can see where the tradition began. On the street:
