Best Place to Shake Your Bootie Saturday Night, Truckee style
What: Keyser Soze
When: Sat, April 6, 8:30pm
Where: Moody’s Bistro Bar + Beats
Keyser Soze has a special place in my heart. I have fond memories from my youth of sneaking into shows to see front man Jamal Tarkington’s former band, the Mudsharks. Jamal is also part of Who Cares, another super rad, local hip-hop group. With a ska/rocksteady sound, Reno-based Keyser Soze has played with major headliners, including Michael Franti, The Wailers, Ozomatli, The English Beat, and Toots & the Maytals.
Reason to go: It’s gonna be a super-fun, bootie-shakin’ time.
