Jimmy Cliff Concert, August 7, 2003 

My vantage wasn't so good, nor my camera, no my photographic eye. But Jimmy Cliff is the guy in the red.

He was all over the place, dancing crazy and generally freaking out.

The band played most of the songs one associates with Jimmy Cliff: The Harder They Come, Rivers of Babylon, Many Rivers To Cross, You Can Get It If You Really Want, Vietnam, as well as his covers of "Wild World" and "I Can See Clearly Now."

My favorite line from a song (not sure of the name, but it's about governments): "I wish they'd get their motherfucking shit together!" all sung to a friendly reggae beat.

For some reason, every other person had a baby with them. I think those little blankets you throw over your shoulder to shield from baby-barf could be the fashion trend of the summer.
