Win Tickets To Matisyahu!
The "new" Matisyahu has shed the constraints of his "hasidic reggae superstar" status in both appearance and sound, believing that reggae was just an influence in the overall sound he was seeking. In 2012, he shaved his beard and released Spark Seeker, which displayed broader influences, which resulted in a backlash from fans of his earlier, reggae-dominated music. Matisyahu describes his most recent effort, Akeda, as "the kind of album an artist makes when there is no other creative choice but to turn oneself inside-‐out, to scrape the insides and reveal everything raw." Matisyahu will perform at the Showbox on October 16th - enter to win a pair of tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "Akeda" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 10/14. Good luck!
