This was the fourth and final night of a weekly residency by the Nth Power at Knitting Factory billed as "Nthfectious," presented by Live For Live Music. This night was Reggae night and featured a wide assortment of guests, as noted above. I probably missed some of the guest rotations but captured the majority.

The Band: Nikki Glaspie - drums Nick Cassarino - guitar, vocals Nate Edgar - bass Elenna Canlas (Easy Star All-Stars, Underground System) - keyboards, vocals Rob Marscher (Addison Groove Project, Matisyahu) - keyboards (set 1 only) Shelton Garner (Easy Star All-Stars) - guitar, vocals Nadav Nirenburg (Monophonics) - trombone Morgan Price (Antibalis) - tenor saxophone Rodney Flood - percussion

@ the Bajah Set consisted of Bajah (Bajah and the Dry Eye Crew) on vocals, Nikki Glaspie on drums, Nate Edgar on bass, and David Bailis (Pimps of Joytime) on guitar.
& with the horns (Nadav and Morgan).
* Bajah exits and the full band returns.
# with Shira Elias (Turkuaz) on vocals.
$ with Paul Josephs on guitar/vocals, Borahm Lee on keyboards, Adam Deitch on drums, and Josh Werner on bass (no Nikki, Nate, or Elenna).
% with Paul Wayne on vocals.
^ with Rass Droppa (Cannabis Cup Band, Easy Star All-Stars) on vocals

taper note: There was some crackling on one of the vocal mics during the second set which came through the PA and the SBD feed.
