GIG ALERT: Toots & the Maytals at Brooklyn Bowl
Tickets: $28.50-$31.00, 8PM, 21+
In 2013, at the age of 71, the seemingly unstoppable reggae pioneer Toots Hibbert was struck in the head by a flying vodka bottle at a festival appearance in Virginia. Toots was seriously injured, and cancelled all future performances. But you just can’t keep a good man—or a lifelong musician—down. Toots and his band the Maytals returned to international stages this summer, and Hibbert seems more likely than ever to embody the title of his debut album in 1964 – “Never Grow Old.” The mighty Toots and the Maytals are at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.
