About this event

Productions Presents: DIRTY HEADS

Support: SOJA,
Tribal Seeds, & Artikal Sound System

Dirty Heads: Following in
the footsteps of their California brothers Sublime, Huntington Beach's Dirty
Heads mix hip-hop, reggae, and rock along with that laid-back So Cal attitude.
The group formed in 2003 when punk rocker Dustin Bushnell (aka Duddy B) asked
his friend, rapper Jared Watson (aka Dirty J), to collaborate on a project that
would focus on positive vibes and infectious grooves. Watson added singing to
his vocal skills, and with percussionist Jon Olazabal, an acoustic trio version
of Dirty Heads began playing shows and building an audience. They soon hooked
up with producer Rob Cavallo and headed into the studio to record their debut
album for Warner Bros., but differences with the label had them looking for
other opportunities. Still, the band was able to retain most of its work,
including sessions with drummer Josh Freese, along with the late-Beatles
collaborator Billy Preston in one of the keyboardist's last recordings. The
finished album, Any Port in a Storm, would arrive in 2008, with a deluxe
edition following in 2010. The deluxe version featured the track "Lay Me
Down" with special guest Rome Ramirez of Sublime with Rome. The song would
top Billboard's Alternative Songs chart just before the summer of 2010.

SOJA: Nearly two
decades ago, SOJA began as high school friends in a D.C. area basement teaching
each other to be musicians and play roots reggae music. Today, the 2x
GRAMMY-nominated eight-piece band, with over 7 million online followers and
over 300 million YouTube views, headlines concerts all over the world for their
massive dedicated fanbase. Even with their continued success, SOJA always wants
to remember their time together in that basement inspired by each other’s
contributions and ideas. The feeling of true magic, collaboration and
brotherhood that started it all is still evident today in their music and each
night at their live concerts. For their latest studio album, Poetry In Motion
(Oct 27 2017), it was essential for SOJA to consciously go back to the
beginning and recapture that same sincere, collaborative magic sparked 20 years

Tribal Seeds: Based in San
Diego, rock-reggae band Tribal Seeds come at their music from a different
angle, more influenced by bands like Steel Pulse and Aswad than the common
touchstone of Sublime. Formed in 2005 by the Jacobo brothers, singer Steven and
producer Tony-Ray, the group issued its debut album, Youth Rebellion, that same
year. The album was the first of many to be released on the group's own label,
including a self-titled album in 2008 plus The Harvest from 2009. The
Soundwaves EP followed in 2011, while 2014's Representing cracked the Billboard
200 albums chart. The album featured guest appearances from Don Carlos, Mykal
Rose, and Midnite's Vaughn Benjamin. In March 2017, Tribal Seeds won the San
Diego Music Award for Artist of the Year. A new single followed, entitled
"Rude Girl" which debuted among iTunes Hot Singles in the Reggae
genre. The band is currently recording their fifth full length album, schedule
for release in early 2018.

Artikal Sound
 Artikal Sound System is a reggae band based out of
South Florida. Founded by Chris Montague (guitar) and Fabian Acuña (bass) in
2012, the band honed their chops backing a series of Caribbean singers. Along
the way the boys picked up the insane and absurd keys player Christopher Cope
and the heavy footed drummer Adam Kampf before finally trying something a
little sonically different with their neighbor, female vocalist Logan Rex.
After nearly a decade of playing together the boys sound tight and powerful, creating
the perfect foundation for their jazz-influenced singer to dance around on
lyrically and literally. What you hear is the sound of friendship, hard work,
imagination and the hope to spread their message of love and the importance of
having a good time.
