Sly & Robbie
Sly & Robbie are one of reggae's most important rhythm sections. In addition to literally hundreds of thousands of Jamaican cuts, they've made people ranging from Serge Gainsbourg to Grace Jones sound like prime toasters. They perform for free at BAM's R&B festival, and it would be unwise to miss them.
Thu Jul 11 noon. Metrotech Commons (Tech Pl.), Downtown Brooklyn. Free
