Our special guests on the LargeUp Sessions with DJ Gravy tomorrow night (6 to 8 PM ET, on RadioLily.com) will be fashion designer Samantha “Sammy B.” Black of Project Runway, and actor/performer Sheldon Shepard.

Shepard, star of the Jamaican feature film Better Mus’ Come, will be on hand to discuss Storm Saulter’s critically acclaimed Jamaican movie, which begins its US theatrical run in New York and LA on Friday. (Get showtimes and win tickets to the opening-night screening/ Q+A hosted by LargeUp and Dahved Levy in NYC here). LargeUp readers will also recognize Shepard as the frontman for Jamaican dub poetry group No-Maddz, subjects of one of our favorite LargeUp TV webisodes and stars of Puma’s “World’s Fastest Band” ad campaign, so perhaps some musical treats will be in the cards as well.
