The Pier Weekend Show Locator

With summer tours colliding in Florida to festivals and shows along the West Coast, it’s a must for this Labor Day Weekend to catch some live music. Why not treat yourself to a little more fun in the sun with an end of summer bash at a reggae-rock show!

In the last few shows of their summer tours, Sublime With Rome, Pepper, and Cypress Hill will be lighting up the stage with the Dirty Heads and Matisyahu. Beginning at 2:30pm on Saturday, St. Petersburg, Florida will be vibin’ the last week of summer with two of the season’s best tours on one stage!

On the opposite coast, Long Beach, California is welcoming a diverse group of reggae fans and bands alike for a one-day festival. The 2nd annual Shoreline Jam Festival will be bringing in our favorite names in reggae for a day of live music along the water and the historic (and haunted) Queen Mary ship.

The Wailers, Black Uhuru, Tribal Seeds, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Stick Figure, Passafire, The Lions, Ballyhoo!, Brewfish, Beyond I Sight, Sono Vero, and Phat Reggae Dub will be jammin’ from 11:00am well until the night!

Tribal Seeds, with their new tune “Night & Day” hitting the scene Tuesday August 29th, mentioned a little sneak peak about their set list. ”We’ll be playing the new single ‘Night and Day’ and we’ll be doing a cover song medley from artists Aswad, Mikey Dread, Burning Spear, and Bob Marley. We’ll be playing these songs with live horns.”

On behalf of Ballyhoo!, lead singer and guitarist Howi Spangler spoke of how the band plans on spending their day. ”I think we’re all excited to play a festival with some great bands. We’re gonna tear it up. It’ll be great to see Passafire again too. They’re handsome fellas.”

Guitarist and lead singer Ted Bowne of Passafire expressed who the band is stoked to catch on the festival day. ”Long Beach Dub All Stars… We’re all fans!! So excited to get the opportunity to see them play live. I didn’t think that was possible, but they are coming back together now and I’m stoked!”

Passafire’s drummer Nick Kubley shared his excitement with other bands in the line up. ”We’re psyched to hear Black Uhuru and to see our boys in Ballyhoo! and Tribal Seeds play. We’ve also toured with The Wailers quite a bit so it will be good to see them again as well.”

Beyond I Sight’s bassist Alex delved into his thoughts about the festival and participating in the event for the second year running. ”I think we’re all just looking forward to hanging out with our friends, fans, family and the other bands. Festivals like this are pretty much just like a big family party and when you combine that with all the great bands that are playing along with the beautiful location it makes for really good vibes.”
