A genuine living legend strolls into the Irish Centre on Friday as the juggernaut of dub himself, Jah Shaka brings his legendary sound system to the city. The Zulu Warrior has been spreading his commandments of dub for nearly five decades and his influences stretch far and wide. Early post punkers experimenting with reggae such as PiL and the Slits cite Shaka as an inspiration and he has also worked with some of the biggest Roots names such as King Tubby, Bim Sherman and Prince Alla. Shaka parties are legendary affairs, Basement Jaxx have called them ‘their best night out ever’, all are welcome to come and plug into that magical slackness vibe and experience the booming mellow bass of the the granddaddy of UK dub. Get ready.

Fri 30 Dec 10pm at the Irish Centre, 14-20 High Street, Deritend B12 0LN £16.50 www.facebook.com/
