Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - FRONT PAGE -

An­other week­end, an­other Mar­ley: On the heels of nephew Skip Mar­ley’s per­for­mance in Park­land last Sun­day, Ju­lian Mar­ley will kick off the pop­u­lar weekly Mi­ami De­sign Dis­trict Per­for­mance Se­ries on Fri­day night.

The free neigh­bor­hood gather­ings at Palm Court (140 NE 39th St.), pre­sented by the Knight Foun­da­tion and pro­duced by 19-time Grammy win­ner Emilio Este­fan, are beloved both for their dis­tinc­tive com­mu­nal vibe and the eclec­tic lineup.

This week­end’s sea­son-open­ing con­cert by Bob Mar­ley’s son and his band, the Up­ris­ing, will be fol­lowed by 10 more Fri­day per­for­mances through Dec. 14.

High­lights in­clude the dan­ce­pop nos­tal­gia of Tay­lor Dayne (Oct. 12), Grammy-win­ning salsero Luis En­rique (Oct. 26), Nestor Tor­res with the Frost School of Mu­sic Jazz En­sem­ble (Nov.2), Cu­ba­ton star El Micha (Nov. 9), Ber­nadette Pe­ters with the Mi­ami Sym­phony Orches­tra (Nov. 16), disco leg­end Thelma Hous­ton (Nov. 30) and singer-song­writer Emily Este­fan (Dec. 7).

Con­certs are sched­uled 6-9 p.m., with mu­sic be­gin­ning at 6:30 p.m. There are many top-notch din­ing and happy-hour op­tions in the area, from Este­fan Kitchen and Michael’s Gen­uine to the St. Roch Mar­ket food hall. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Mi­amiDe­signDistrict.net.

Mar­ley fans liv­ing north can get their fix on Sun­day at sixth an­nual Dirty River Reg­gae Fest, the free, all-ages roots-and-reg­gae blast at Gua­n­a­banas Is­land Restau­rant & Bar in Jupiter.

Along with Ju­lian Mar­ley and the Up­ris­ing, the day will in­clude like-minded mu­sic from Ar­tikal Sound Sys­tem, Spred the Dub, SowFlo, Moska Project and Roots Shakedown. The party is hosted by the ir­re­press- ible Lance-O from Kulcha Shok.
