Matisyahu at the Republic

The first time I heard there was a Hasidic Jewish rapper who seamlessly fuses reggae, rock, hip-hop, beat boxing, and Hazen prayer chants into a style that’s uniquely his own, I was flabbergasted.  I assumed it had to be a gimmick at best and a joke at worst.  But having seen him in action, this is guy who truly throws down and actually does mix up all those influences into a fine stew.   Nathen Maxwell and the Original Bunny Gang open the show.  Republic New Orleans is located at 828 South Peters Street in the Warehouse District.
