This November, the San Diego based band, Stick Figure, is linking up with Boston’s John Brown’s Body for a few must see shows along the west coast! Adding to these dates is special guest, Alific.
Stick Figure will be starting off their Cali-coast run on Halloween night with a show featuring Thrive! and Simple Creation at Ace of Spades in Sacramento. Following that is 6 shows that will be co-headlined with Reggae veterans, John Brown’s Body. Joining along will be Stick Figure’s one-time bassist turned reggae-dub DJ, Alific. The mini tour concludes on November 30th at the SOMA in San Diego showcasing local bands, Stick Figure, Tribal Seeds, Piracy Conspiracy, DJ Carlos Culture and LA’s, The Expanders.
Formed in the mid-1990’s, John Brown’s Body are no rookies to playing shows on the road away from home. JBB’s unique high-energy live performances should be a great mix with the heavy dub-influenced sounds of both Alific and Stick Figure. Brendan Dane, also known as Alific, recently collaborated with Stick Figure members Scott Woodruff (guitar/vocals) and Kevin Bong (keys/vocals) on his sophomore album, Echoes From The Soul released by Rootfire Records. The chemistry between these artists should make for some special shows on a mini-tour that stops in California-Reggae hot spots like Santa Cruz, Hermosa Beach and Santa Barbara.
Whether or not you can make it to these shows on the coast, you should definitely keep an eye on all these artists as they are constantly at work to put out new material. If you are able catch the show, be on the lookout for John Brown’s Body to be performing plenty of songs off their newest album, Kings & Queens, released off of Easy Star Records.
As always, The Pier will do our best to provide you with quality updates as soon as they are made available to us so make sure to check back!
