Things have taken off in a big way for Rebelution and in a relatively short period of time. This is large in part to the band’s strong work ethic and that the Santa Barbara four-piece possesses that hard to define x-factor, where its music appeals to the masses and demands to be re-heard – Safe and Sound anyone?
Rebelution look to the “Bright Side of Life” as all four band members drop by The Pier for a chat! CLICK HERE to read!
It was a fun night in Long Beach with Del Mar, Bert Susanka, Rome and Kat and more taking to the stage at Di Piazzas. Luckily, The Pier was there with Brendon Davis ‘Turtle’ and the 442media crew to write this review and get some exclusive pictures and video footage. CLICK HERE to read and see all about it!
Check out the video of Rome and Bud Gaugh performing a cover of Sublime’s Ebin with Del Mar below. For more video from the show just check out the review!
On our way to Atlanta we had a day off. We decided to stop in Macon, GA to do some laundry. While waiting for our clothes to dry we met Willy-1-Leg and Uncle Fred. Willy shared some of his home made chicken noodle soup with us and in return we got him drunk and stoned. We set up shop in their backyard and got busy with some good ol’ fashioned Cornhole. The night ended in a drunken Jam session with our two new friends.
