A rare taste of Verbal Warnin'

The seldom-seen Halifax reggae group gets Michael's in the groove.

Spontaneity seekers, Verbal Warnin'.

Getting the chance to spend a night with super-band Verbal Warnin' is rather rare, even for its members. Longtime friends and collaborators Sean Weber, Paul Keddy, Ross Burns, Matt Myer, Alec Frith, Zac Miller and Sekou Nkruma are damn busy with their fingers in various tasty musical pies, from Gypsophilia to The Synchronics, but luckily for us they decided to get together this Friday night to exercise their reggae chops. "This group is such a live, spontaneous, one," says Weber, looking forward to the band's first show at Michael's. "No two times that we play a song are the same and we like it like that." They'll be playing alongside yet another project from Verbal Warnin' members: Weber and Frith's six-piece 30 Hertz, a more instrumental dub-reggae. It's shows like this one you've got to be sure to savour, because who knows when you'll get another taste. –AS
