The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

With summer right around the corner, our favorite artists have their new tunes, tours, and gigs lined up for the next few months! The Pier will be hosting a MEET & GREET at a big Cali-Roots Festival this weekend and remember our Weekend Show Locator is the place to hit up to find the shows you will need to be at! So let’s check out what Memorial Day Weekend has in store for reggae-rock fans!

This weekend is the 3rd Annual Cali-Roots Music Festival in Monterey, CA. Headliners Pepper and SOJA are just two of the 35+ band lineup! Fans of the genre are bound to catch their longtime favorites, new loves, and bands they have never even heard of! The festival consumes both May 26th & May 27th.

The Pier will be in attendance doing Meet & Greets at scheduled times both days of the event. Check the Meet & Greet Schedule below and find your way to the official Cali-Roots Tent to have your merchandise autographed & pictures taken, courtesy of The Pier….

Meet & Greets’ Saturday, May 26th:
SOJA – 3:00pm
J Boog – 4:15pm
Passafire – 7:00pm

Meet & Greets’ Sunday, May 27th:
The Green – 4:30pm
Iration – 6:45pm
The Expendables – 8:40pm

The Expendables shared their excitement, saying “We are very pumped to be apart of the festival this year. We went last year to hang with Rebelution and since then we wanted to be apart of it for this year. Monterey is close to Santa Cruz, our hometown, so playing a festival with all our friends and family will be awesome.”

The Expendies also have new material. “We have a lot of new stuff we have been working on so chances are we will try 1 or 2 songs out. No scheduled collaborations but when we get together with all the bands that we have toured with over the years, we love to bring friends on stage.”

From West Coast festivals to East Coast reunions, The Movement will be playing three straight days! Starting on Saturday and closing out the holiday on Monday, the East coast band will be jammin’ with their former, but returning singer Josh Swain all weekend long.

After 2 years of working on solo material, Josh Swain and they guys will be welcoming fans with their original sound. Fans can get ready for 17-20 song set lists all weekend long. Josh stressed his anticipation for playing old songs such as “Habit, Hola, Another Man’s Shoes, Mexico, Ocho Rios & Cold Outside. Trying to remember Sweet Summertime, ha. It’ll be tough, I haven’t played those songs in over 2 years, and we won’t have time to practice even for a second, so I’ll definitely be winging it a little.”

With a loaded Show Locator, all of you reggae-rockers out there better get ready to jam out this Memorial Day Weekend! So turn up your favorite tunes, check out the Show Locator, and hit up your buds because you have shows to attend this weekend!
