Yellowman and the Sagittarius Band
Justice League, Sat/20

LADIES BEWARE! Reggae legend and sex symbol extraordinaire Yellowman is in town with the Sagittarius Band, and they're looking to par-tay. The self-made musical Casanova knows how to move an audience, as he should after more than 20 years of workin' it. He started his career in the 1970s with the Gemini Sound System and quickly become a dancehall favorite, earning himself the nicknames "Mr. Sexy" and "King of the Dancehall." Yellowman's tongue-in-cheek lyrics toasted over the milky smooth tunes of the Sagittarius Band, his hypnotic sound, and his onstage persona are so seductive to audiences that it's easy to see why he's the number one-selling reggae artist since Bob Marley. He's also one of the most requested DJs in dancehall history. Not a small feat, considering his bouts with throat and skin cancer and the fact that he spent his early years ostracized for being albino. King Yellow is a musical badass, who proves that sexy is a frame of mind, not a formula. When you've got it, you've got it, and Yellowman has a lot of it. J-Boogie also performs. 9 p.m., 628 Divisadero, S.F. $20. (415) 289-2038. (Angie Edwards)
