Date: Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Line Up: SOJA
Venue: Del Mar Fairgrounds. Del Mar (San Diego), CA

  • After about the third song of the set, Jacob Hemphill addressed the crowd in an apologetic tone, saying if he seemed less energetic on stage, it’s because he was recovering from an undisclosed surgery just 4 days prior. Whatever the surgery, its a tribute to the groups dedication to the fans as they could have easily canceled the show. Instead, Jacob & the rest of the groupdelivered on their highly anticipated FREE show, playing a reggae soundtrack to a summer night, in San Diego, CA… READ MORE

    Venue: TLA. Philadelphia, PA

    Line Up: Sublime With Rome, Iration, HB Surround Sound
    Venue: Marymoor Amphitheater. Redmond, WA

  • Shortly after the show, Sublime with Rome took the stage and gave an encore performance of the Sublime self titled album. According to SWR”s Vocalist, Rome Ramirez, the set list was decided upon last minute, paying homage to the classic Self-Titled album.
