Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks will testify Wednesday in support of the measure during a House Judiciary Committee hearing.

An Acoustic Evening with Matisyahu @ Rams Head On Stage

Matisyahu blasts off yet again with Spark Seeker, a bold new studio album

Since first emerging on the international stage in 2005, Matisyahu has established a reputation for following his muse—from the stripped-down roots reggae of the gold-certified Live at Stubb’s to the trippy ministrations of Youth to the polished pop eclecticism of Light. Then, in 2010, he returned to the venerable Austin venue that introduced him for Live at Stubb’s II, demonstrating that all those travels had somehow only strengthened his connection to his musical bedrock.
