Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for supporting independent live music.  Visit mateel.org for more information.

Original post: Comparatively, we have call this a low key Saturday. Sure, there a few "holiday" craft fairs goin' on -- we know which holiday you guys are talking about. Nice try -- but seeing as Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet, we refuse to acknowledge their existence (except in the listings below).

There's some gems in the mix. Like, if you'd like to sway along with the SoHum masses, the Mateel Community Center is hosting major touring reggae act Tribal Seeds tonight. Are they your particular brand of reggae? We snuck this video away from YouTube to help you decide.
