Matisyahu 

When: Sun., July 3 2011

It's unusual to issue a "spoiler alert" for a concert, but in this case, it'd probably be advisable. So you may want to stop here if you're planning to go. (Pause.) OK then, here's my story: The one time I went to see Matisyahu and his band live, I was really enjoying the performance until, midway through the show, it occurred to me that they sounded a lot like the Police, a comparison that unfortunately stuck in my head through the rest of the show. Of course, this was back in 2005, when the Brooklyn-based Hasidic reggae singer was still forging his own musical identity. For $26, you can find out how he's progressed during this all-ages show at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com). Dub Trio opens. Doors at 7 p.m. — Bill Forman
