Lets just say the whole month of july is JAMMING with amazing bands at the BOX… From kicking it off with Trombone Shorty on the 5th + 6th  to a solo show with G. Love on the 17th to Galactic bringing down the house on the 26th and 27th…. lets just say there is no shortage of incredible live music happening on Daves Street… but one serious highlight in our blACKbook will be welcoming TALIB KWELI to the island on July 19 and 20th! PACKY SAYS…. “Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams. I thought The Box should bring a different show to the island then we are used to. On top of that it’s going to be one of the most energetic concerts of the summer. Check out this song below and see for yourself!”
