February 6 marks the 60th birthday of Bob Marley; at least, it would have if cancer hadn't taken him at age 36. Far more influential than many of the old farts who outlasted him, Marley is reggae music to the vast majority of American fans. Come get your one love on with the rest of the tribe at Marleyfest 2005 at the Duck Room this Saturday. It'll be all Marley music from the Murder City Players, Dubtronix, Youths and Roots and Yardsquad.
