SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCES/EVENTS


Date: Friday, March 6 Artist: G. Love & Special Sauce Location: The Toyota Yard  Cost: $27.50 in advance, $30 day of show Age: All Ages Time: 8 p.m.

Description: Born Garrett Dutton in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, G. Love grew up equally enthralled with folk, blues and rap, devouring everything from Lead Belly and Run D.M.C. to John Hammond and the Beastie Boys. After migrating to Boston, he and his band Special Sauce broke out in 1994 with their Gold-selling self-titled debut, featuring the hit “Cold Beverage” which earned widespread critical acclaim or its bold vision and adventurous production. Over the next 25 years, G. Love would go on to release seven more similarly lauded studio albums with Special Sauce, plus four solo albums on his own, solidifying his place in music history as a genre-bending pioneer with a sound The New York Times described as “a new and urgent hybrid” and NPR called a “musical melting pot.” G Love’s magnetic stage presence, meanwhile, made him a fixture on festival lineups from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, and his relentless appetite for tour and collaboration landed him on the road and in the studio with artists as diverse as Lucinda Williams, Dave Matthews, The Avett Brothers, Jack Johnson and DJ Logic. G. Love has played with and without Special Sauce over the years, but now the trio is back together and it feels right. G. Love believes the current manifestation of the band is stronger than ever and is riding a creative high.


Date: Thursday, April 2 Artist: Grateful Dub Location: The Birdie Bar Cost: $12 in advance, $15 day of show Age: All Ages Time: 8 p.m.

Description: Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam and reggae-rock favorites like Camp Bisco, Gathering of The Vibes, California Roots, Jungle Jam and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtonica band Roots of Creation offers up a high-energy, infectious live music experience. Their mix makes crowds move and has their loyal underground fan base and street team travelling the distance to pack venues from coast-to-coast. Now Roots of Creations takes on a unique new project called Grateful Dub, combining their longtime love for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead. Roots of Creation reworked some of the world’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album and had the pleasure of working in the studio with the legendary five-time GRAMMY winner Errol Brown who was Bob Marley’s engineer. Grateful Dub is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres and clubs around the country and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals and Scott Guberman. Grateful Dub captures the spirit and magic of the Grateful Dead, while laying it down reggae-dub style.


Date: Thursday, April 23 Artist: The Expendables Location: The Toyota Yard Cost: $22 in advance, $25 day of show  Ages: All Ages Time: 7 p.m.

Description: The Expendables consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers on guitar and vocals, Adam Patterson on drums and vocals, Raul Bianchi on lead guitar and Ryan DeMars on bass. The band enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, California; surfing, skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast. Blending reggae, punk rock and ‘80s style dueling guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.
