Ziggy Marley is sprawled across his hotel bed, looking like any other 19- year-old in jeans and a T-shirt, except perhaps for the dreadlocks that brush against his shoulders. The son of reggae legend Bob Marley has picked up at least one habit common to rock stars and traveling salesmen: He has taken to leaving the television on without the sound. Two of Marley's younger brothers - Steven, who drums in Ziggy's band, the Melody Makers, and Robbie - have collapsed on the other bed with Ziggy's bodyguard.

Positively drenched. That's how a joyous audience left the Mann Music Center after Saturday night's inspiring performances by Ziggy Marley and the Neville Brothers. Like the warm, heavy rains that fell throughout the show, the music itself had a way of soaking through the skin and reaching deep. Bones seemed to soften as the grooves sank in, and without a bit of verbal exhortation from the stage the crowd became one simmering human swamp. Arms waved, torsos swayed and hips set gentle waves of sex afloat.

Philly Gumbo will be celebrating Mardi Gras early at Grendel's Lair on Sunday.

When he recorded "Five Year Town," a true-to-life if slightly tongue-in-cheek look at his trying times in Nashville, Tim Carroll hadn't yet faced one of his cruelest career turns. The song was on a 1998 album that was to be his major-label debut. The set was never released, though, until Carroll put it out himself this year with the sly title Not for Sale (available from milesofmusic.com). Judging by his unaffectedly wise and funny songs, set to raw-boned roots-rock, Carroll is not about to let the vicissitudes of the biz do him in. After all, this is a guy who has learned that "A Good Cry," brought on by nothing more than a good George Jones country weeper, is as therapeutic as any session with a shrink.

The first song on A Tribe Called Quest's just-released Beats, Rhymes and Life makes a brutally honest pronouncement on the state of hip-hop: "It seems there's a sanitation yard full of trash talkers. . . . Phony rappers, who do not write. Phony rappers, who do not excite. " It's a blunt dismissal of the current hip-hop trends, and coming from the famously clean Tribe, it's something of a shock: This New York-based crew may slice-and-dice with the best of them, but rarely utters such harsh condemnations.

When you think of places where reggae music has been nurtured, you probably ruminate about the tough town of Kingston, Jamaica, or maybe the island's resort communities of Montego Bay and Negril. Yet this weekend, a creative focus is on Wilmington, Del., where the "Bob Marley 50th Anniversary World Music Festival" will pay tribute to the world's most inspiring reggae man and his little-recognized area connections. High point of the celebration is a two-stage concert to be held Saturday afternoon and early evening on the parking lots of Blue Rocks Stadium on South Madison Street.
