One of the greatest benefits of running a popular blog is getting comp’d to see events and speak with artists. Thanks to a great relationship between ZIF and VP Records, I will be checking out the Queen Ifrica & Tony Rebel show tonight @ Ivar in Hollywood. Having seen the legendary Tony Rebel throw down at multiple reggae festivals, my excitement to see him goes without saying. But the real intrigue is seeing the Queen! Queen Ifrica that is, an artist I have never seen live, yet her reputation compels my enthusiasm for tonight. I’ll let you know what it feels like to speak to royalty sometime this week, I’m scheduled to interview her after the show.
