GIVEAWAY: Win Tix to See Scientist + Roots Radics In NY

Words by LargeUp Crew—

In what is sure to be the highlight of next week’s Dub Champions festival in NYC, Scientist and the Roots Radics Band are set to meet on stage Friday, Sept. 21, for what we think may just be the first-ever live performance of their crucial 1981 dub album, Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires, at BB King’s. In any case, it’ll certainly be the first time they’ve taken the stage with Johnny Osbourne, whose “He Can Surely Turn The Tide” was dubbed into Evil Curse‘s “Plague of Zombies.”
