Jimmy Cliff and Salman Rushdie at Miss Lily's Variety

As we informed you earlier this week, our favorite downtown restaurant Miss Lily’s held a little party Monday night to celebrate the launch of its new, next-door takeout spot/juice bar/art gallery Miss Lily’s Variety. Inaugurating the space in proper fashion, Jimmy Cliff performed an intimate, Storytellers-like acoustic show, hosted by radio personality Pat McKay (and broadcast over her Sirius Satellie Radio show) and attended by names like Salman Rushdie (Harder They Come meets Satanic Verses Inna Miss Lily’s!) Read our recap for the story behind the story, and click below to watch Jimmy perform his seminal 1969 gospel, “Many Rivers to Cross.”
