Monday May 6th



After seven years of touring the west coast of North America, from Tijuana to Vancouver Island, BURNT has refined their sound down to raw vocals, bass-heavy soul and a rock-steady groove. Primo, Danny, and Robie Dreads music is pure California underground - elements of rebellious reggae, old skool ska, dirty punk and true hip hop are mashed together to make for constant good times on the dance floor. This three piece band from San Francisco is stoked to bring their unique and positive vibration to the stage and your backyard! Giraffe Aftermath: Building on the traditions of reggae and dub music, Vancouver's Giraffe Aftermath use hip-hop rhythms and a psychedelic approach to create a unique blend of lively, danceable music. Formed in 2006 by Steve Hackenbruch and Luke de Villiers, this songwriting/production duo remains the core of the band's music. Joined on stage by Paul Steffes and a revolving cast of peripheral players, Giraffe Aftermath throw down a foundation of groove and airtight vocal harmonies. Ottly Mercer is a ska/rocksteady/reggae band founded in Imperial Beach by drummer Jason Yandall and singer/guitarist Tyler French. FREE SHOW!
