Glad You Asked: Matisyahu, Shabazz Palaces and Melvins Lite



Dear GYA, Man, last night's undie run was awesome. I just wish we didn't get so sauced at the bar afterward. Unfortunately I woke up on my friends couch this morning and now I have to walk home in a man diaper. Uh, I'm an idiot. Well, since I'm already out, anything good happening today? -Ben Nepolini, Downtown---

Ben, you're not alone. Hundreds of people will be doing a walk of shame today in their underwear; it's just part of the fun. Here's what's going down:

The reggae-fusion artist Matisyahu will be at The Depot this evening. Last July, the New York native released his fourth studio album. Spark Seeker, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Reggae chart.The Dirty Heads will be opening things up. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The Seattle-based hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces will be onstage at Urban Lounge. Check out an interview with the group by City Weekly's music editor, Austen Diamond. Dumb Luck and Fisch Loops are also on the bill. The show starts at 9 p.m.

The punk band Melvins Lite will be live at In The Venue/Club Sound. After 30 years of making music, the band has decided to break the record for most consecutive shows with 51 concerts in 51 days. This is your chance to be part of punk-rock history. The show starts at 8 p.m. 

A few other worthwhile events: 

- Indie artist Kishi Bashi will be performing at The State Room, beginning at 8 p.m.

- Punk band Lightning Bolt will be live at Kilby Court, starting at 7 p.m.  

- The always-free Lunch Bunch Concert Series will be going down at the Gallivan Center at noon.
