Matisyahu is coming to Portland
I'm totally into this guy's music. He's a Hasidic Jew and an up and coming Reggae superstar. He's Matisyahu and he's the bomb. There's some live video of him here (a slower number, give it a minute, as with all reggae it takes a second to get going). He also does a mean beatbox.
There's a number of articles about Matisyahu that delve a little into the intertwining between Judaism and Rastafarianism and the Rasta's love of Ethiopia. He's coming to Portland in September.
