Got your scariest zombie costume on with no plans set? Ready to rock Halloween night and not a place to go? Well The Pier is tossing reggae-rock shows your way to celebrating this spooky holiday! Check it out in this Special Edition of the Halloween Show Locator!
SOJA and Matisyahu are joining forces to make it a huge Halloween gig in Charlottesville, Virginia’s pavilion. After summer and fall months of non-stop touring, the reggae duo are coming together for the night to celebrate with all the ghouls and gals! Following the Halloween showcase, Matisyahu will be continuing his headlining tour around the United States. After nearly three months touring alongside the Dirty Heads, his solo tour will go from east to west again. Meanwhile, the Halloween headliner, SOJA will be heading abroad to Europe! So, join in on the festivities and music for SOJA’s last night in the United States for a while; Bon Voyage!
When it comes to celebrating good ole’ American holidays, California knows how to get things going! With the eerie, haunted night upon us, Fortunate Youth, Jon Wayne and The Pain, Thicker Than Thieves, Ikaika Beamer and more will be tripping us all out for the evening! With the event taking place in San Diego, California reggae-rock fans will enjoy a Halloween full of their favorite kind of music! And, don’t for get to be dressed in costumes, because there will be a contest!
Another big Halloween show will take place off the shores of Florida! The Orlando, FL reggae-rock-ska band The Supervillains have upgraded their Halloween Party location this year. Leaving the mainland to visit St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands, The Supervillains amped this holiday up! With a boat or plane trip away, drummer and vocalist Dominic Maresco had a moment to chat with us about the night.
“We have dug up some old tunes and have been playing them live; a lot of stuff from Massive and Grow Your Own. It’s always fun to play songs you haven’t played in years and it’s cool to see the excitement of the fans who’ve missed them… Since we’ve been touring, I can only think of a small number of times that we didn’t rock for October 31st, so Happy Halloween everywhere else! Get lots of candy and drink a lot of booze!
