This weekend Southern California will be rocking with live, local reggae music in and out of the sun!
Friday August 17th:
Ease Up, Bad Apples and Tommy Dubs will be jamming at The Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach, CA. Drop by Hensely’s Flying Elephant in Carlsbad, CA and see the Carlsbad natives, Stone Senses, rock you with their six piece instrumentally eclectic style. Head south to San Diego’s Typhoon Saloon and catch Tribal Theory with special guest Kahi Lofa. If you are in the Downtown San Diego area, Project: Out of Bounds (P.O.B.) will be putting on an epic show at Eastern Village Tavern and Bowl from 9:30-11:30 P.M.
Had enough? Nope, didn’t think so!
Saturday August 18:
The Tilted Kilt in Long Beach, CA will host The Simpkin Project on their Summer Solstice Tour along with special guest Ezzrah. This show is FREE and all ages are welcome, so bring the kiddies and save on a sitter. Ocean Beach’s finest beach club, Winstons, will be raging as So-Cal Showcase presents High Tide, Jah Perry and Mad Traffic. Music starts at 5:30, and as the night continues at Winstons you can check out the CD release party for Tommy Dubs! Performing alongside Tommy Dubs will be Ease Up, and introducing KNG MKR. The Roots Factory in San Diego will be fundraising for Revival along with DJ sets by DJ Rizo, Danny Dread and Rudy Roots. Come out and show some love! 710 Beach Club on Garnet in Pacific Beach San Diego will kick off at 10 P.M. with Stranger and DJ Dash Eye from Tribe of Kings!
Tired yet? Heading out to the beach? Perfect!
Sunday August 19:
Sunday Funday indeed as Shoreline Rootz takes the stage right on Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA from 3 P.M. – 5 P. M. If you have never seen this 9 piece reggae band “with crisp horn lines, female backing vocals, hypnotic bass-lines and driving keyboard and percussive syncopation,” here is your chance! The show is free and the sun will be shining, so pack up the sunscreen, get a surf in and then jam out with Shoreline Rootz.
Be sure to check out the SoCal Reggae event calendar for more information about all the shows and artists mentioned above, and upcoming events.
Happy Days from SoCal Reggae!
