PULLMAN, Wash. — Tickets are on sale now for two reggae musical groups, Boom Shaka and Natty Nation, set to perform Nov. 10 at Washington State University’s Beasley Coliseum. The 8 p.m. concert is part of the Fall Reggae Extravaganza sponsored by the Associated Students of WSU’s Entertainment Committee.
Boom Shaka, which has been described as Los Angeles’ best-kept secret, will play various tracks from its new album, “Rebel Lion.” The group’s music reflects a combination of hip-hop influences and a long-time dedication to classic reggae.
Natty Nation will also bring its original reggae musical style to the WSU campus. The band is known for its blend of reggae roots with a hard-rock edge, resulting in a “Bob Marley meets Jimmy Hendrix” sound.
“Our focus this year was to make the musical programming more culturally diverse,” said Heather Andersen, co-chair of ASWSU Entertainment. “We have had few reggae performers in the past, so we are really excited to have these popular groups coming to WSU.”
Tickets can be purchased at the Beasley Coliseum Box Office or by calling G&B Select-a-Seat at 800/325-SEAT. Tickets are $7 for students and $10 for non-students.
