Good reggae only comes around every so often; take it while you can get it. Sunday in Hartford finds Elephant Man (pictured), aka "The Energy Gawd," teaming with singer Serani for an all-day, outdoor show (performances begin at 4 p.m.) at Hartford's Sportsmen's Athletic Club. Elephant Man recently made Nicki Minaj dance out of her chair at the 2013 BET Awards, and the Jamaican-born Serani is more of a crooner. Other entertainers will also be on hand. Advance tickets ($15) are available at various area shops and restaurants (call the number for information), or just show up (for $20).
Elephant Man w/ Serani
Sept. 1, 4 p.m., $15-$20, Sportsmen's Athletic Club, 2976 Main St., Hartford, (860) 983-2699.
