Ziggy Marley, My Disco tonight (5/4/11)

Posted By on Wed, May 4, 2011 at 8:37 AM

Ziggy Marley Roots reggae can never be parted from the Marley clan, and after nearly two decades of recording with the Melody Makers and on the solo tip, Ziggy Marley glides along with potent songwriting, not afraid to bring in jazz, soul and R&B in just the proper amounts. Marley taps varied covers, and his originals remain contagious while his uplifting lyrics never grow tiresome. He’s on the road pumping his new comic book, aptly titled MarijuanaMan, and the upcoming album Wild and Free. $39.50. The Fillmore Charlotte. (Samir Shukla)

My Disco From the abrasive opening guitar notes of its latest record, Little Joy, this Aussie outfit’s name reads like a red herring — unless you recall the Big Black song of the same title, and then the tumblers fall into place. Turns out Steve Albini is the engineer to boot, which tells you the guitars and your ears will be locked in raw mortal combat occasionally. But unlike the angular beat-fractures you expect from the Albini stamp, My Disco’s music surges forward insistently on repetition, sometimes at Neu! speed and sometimes at a plodding prehistoric sludge-metal pace. Opening for Young Widows and with Yardwork. $10-$12. The Milestone. (John Schacht)
