Clinton Fearon, Selecta Raiford
(Nectar) Jamaica native Clinton Fearon started his career in the 1970s as the longtime vocalist and bass player for the Gladiators and is also known for his work with Lee Perry’s Black Ark Studio and Studio One. He has been a mainstay in the Seattle music scene for years—first with the much-loved Defenders, then later with his current group, the fabulous Boogie Brown Band. Performing his original songs, Fearon’s warm singing voice and lively roots-reggae music set the perfect mood for dancing, relaxing, and having fun. GILLIAN ANDERSON
And this week’s Bug in the Bassbin has three parties you can attend:
1) Shift’s Rottun Recordings Night (featuring Excision) at Contour. 10 pm—2 am, $5.
2) The kick off of Foscil’s six-month residenty at BLVD in Belltown.
3) The Knight Riders party at Hengst Studios which will include a special appearance by KITT, the car from Knight Rider (OMG!!).
And from The Score:
Carolyn Kuan leads the band in a free, all-Mozart concert. Aside from two symphonies—the negligible Symphony No. 1 and the fine Symphony No. 40—the band delivers the best wine-pouring music ever written, the Allegro from Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. Violinist Quinton Morris solos in the Allegro from Concerto No. 3 in G major for Violin and Orchestra. Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Ave, 684-7171, noon—1 pm, free.
