Sixth & I Synagogue
Washington, DC
November 25th

Remembers how straight up Jew-reggae-franztastic Matisyahu's 2005 debut Live At Stubbs waszeses? Felt like a novelty act, coulda ended up that way, apparently didn't, and we haven't listen to one of his albums since, so we haven't a clue as to what the hoppin Hasid's been up to. We can only guess that he decided to go all out borings with his next set of records, rights? Cause how else can you explain the lack of grooves (and beatboxing, WTF!) and don onslaught of chanting and blah blah blahing we heards when we finally got around to seeing the hairy muthersticker in concert, which apparently was 4 years too late. Sure, the show was at a synagogue so of course it was going to be drenched in Jewishnessness, but instead of playing it too cool for shul like he should have, it was like being in Hebrew School all over again, but kinda not as awful, but still, doode, chill with the yabba yabba gabba gaga, yaaaaay yah yah. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Wake me up when you convert to Christianity like Bob Dylan!!! Or next time at least have the decency to hand out free hamantashen homey while you snores us to Simchas Bore-ah!
