Matisyahu has a new album---Spark Seeker. I LOVE some of the new songs. A few are just eh. We've been fortunate to see him in concert twice this month. First time at The Del Mar Fair. (I will always call it that. Even though officially it changed a few years ago to The San Diego Fair.)
Matis is no longer a practicing Hassidic Jew, so he's shaved his beard and locks. I kind of miss them. Don't think you like Jewish reggae? Give it a try.
Second, at Jimmy Kimmel Live. Another free outdoor concert! Fortunately the heat wave broke so it wasn't too hot waiting in line. We didn't get front row, but 3 deep in the center wasn't too bad. Especially when before the start of the show a couple of crew guys prepared us for the possibility that Matis would be stage diving right on top of us.
Right before he landed on us! So much fun!!! And he sounded awesome!!!
"Live Like a Warrior"
We had a great time. We were the only blonds there. And some of the only few who danced. There was not nearly enough beat boxing---a skill Matisyahu excels at. Great fun!
