Journey inward at the ACTMatisyahu is a Jewish-American reggae rocker known for his beatboxing and alt-rock leanings. He made headlines at the beginning of his career for sporting an orthodox Jewish appearance including beard, yarmulke, and locks. Though Matisyahu has chopped his locks, he still looks inward and to the Torah for his musical inspirations, playing both thoughtful and good-time tunes.
The Animas City Theatre, 128 E. College Dr., will host An Evening with Matisyahu on Monday, July 24. Doors are at 8:30 p.m. and the show starts at 9 for this $35, 18-and-over event.
