Spend One Day With Matisyahu

Date: Tuesday, October 21

What do you get when you mix an Orthodox Jew with reggae, rock and beat boxing? You get Matisyahu, who will be playing the Ventura Theater on South Chestnut Steet in Ventura. Matisyahu burst onto the scene in 2005 with his top 40 hit, “King Without A Crown.” Since then the West Chester, PA native has put out four albums and in 2010 his single, “One Day,” was featured during television coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Matisyahu’s latest album, Akeda, came out earlier this year and cracked the top 10 of top independent albums, top modern rock albums, top rap albums and top rock albums charts. The concert starts at 8:00 p.m. and general admission tickets cost $48.

Head to the Staples Center for this 7:30 p.m. tip-off to watch these two talented point guards lock horns as well as all the high-flying play Clippers fans have become accustomed to from Lob City.
