Matisyahu announces “Festival of Light” tour; performs in L.A. on Nov. 13

West Coast Matisyahu fans will have to travel cross-country to see the Chasidic reggae star on his just-announced “Festival of Light” tour.

The all-East Coast tour, an “annual Hanukkah celebration,” according to music site, only goes as far west as Baltimore, MA, taking place between Nov. 29 and Dec. 5.

On Nov. 13, though, local Matisyahu fans/curious folk who want to see him live will have their chance. He performs at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex California State University, Los Angeles. The Jewish Journal sponsors the show, along with KCRW, the Alliance Francaise de Pasadena and the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles.
