What: 311 Pow Wow Festival

  • By day, concertgoers of 311’s first fest spent afternoons doing whatever they could to deal with the wrath of Florida heat at its worst, which was made possible by the perfect combination of a cloudless sky and beaming sunshine mixed with plenty of humidity. To deal, methods included posting up under the nearest shady tree, which would provide an automatic relief, escaping to vehicles pumping air conditioners, walking through brilliantly provided spray mister-fan areas, or taking a dip in the coffee-colored and cool Suwannee River.READ MORE

    Who: The Wailers, Mighty Diamonds, Governor Tiggy, Alika
    Location: World Beat Center. San Diego, CA

  • The Wailers were in San Diego, California on August 12th, one of many stops in the U.S. before heading over to South America to spread the message of love. The Wailers feature Aston “Family Man” Barrett, the man behind the bass for the original Bob Marley and The Wailers. Together with two vocalists, two female backup vocalists, two guitar players, keys, and drums, The Wailers come together and feature music from the Uprising and Exodus albums. It was quite a revelation to see and hear the Wailers perform at the World Beat Center with The Mighty Diamonds, a band from the same era and land. The stop in San Diego certainly stirred up a classic, roots reggae scene.READ MORE
