Natty Nation, Immigré, DJ Trichrome, Jon A. Thundercloud

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Madison-based reggae band Natty Nation's annual Black Friday show is a well-established local tradition, and this one marks its 10th year. The band's most recent album, 2016's Divine Spark, is very much in the vein of straightforward but subtly eclectic, and always solidly melodic, reggae they've worked for more than 20 years. They've recently been working on their next full-length. At this show they'll be joined by Immigré, a more recently formed Madison ensemble that channels propulsive, tense Afrobeat through a mix of originals and deep-reaching covers. Madison reggae DJ Trichrome will be spinning, and vocalist Jon A. Thundercloud will perform a few songs of Ho-Chunk music right before Natty Nation's set. Some of the proceeds from this show will be donated to organizations opposing energy company Enbridge's efforts to build new oil pipelines through Wisconsin. —Scott Gordon
