The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

The holidays are a marker for people coming together in good spirits. Well, we do that every weekend by hitting up reggae-rock shows across the nation! See which bands are in what location and who they are teaming up with at venues, bars, and amphitheaters near you in this Weekend’s Show Locator.

In the reggae-rock community, The Aggrolites are a major contributing factor to the brotherhood, but once you step into the mainstream scene, a good chunk of people have no idea of even the tops of our genre. Tonight, The Aggrolites are sharing the main stage with No Doubt at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles! The renowned ska-reggae-rock outfit, No Doubt, is back on stage after more than 10 years away from the studios and music charts. What great exposure for The Aggrolites to share their ”Dirty Reggae” sound! No Doubt will also be rockin’ the Gibson on Sunday night.

Reggae legend, Jimmy Cliff is opening up for Dave Matthews Band during back to back nights at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ this Friday and Saturday. Since the 1960s, Jimmy Cliff has been bringing hits to the stage and with new songs from his latest album Rebirth, which dropped this past July, Cliff is nowhere near slowing down. Joining up with Dave Matthews, who clearly has an infinity for reggae after the signing of SOJA as well as other significant artists like 311, John Butler Trio, and Rodrigo y Gabriela to his record label ATO, fans are in for some feel good music!

Bringing the reggae scene together for the holidays, the 1st Annual Ogden Winter Reggae Festival will be sporting an awesome bill. HB Surround Sound, Stranger, Coral Thief, FunkNGonzo, Wasnatch, Tribe of I, and Chris Aguilar and Friends will be playing the one day festival starting at 6pm until 1am Friday night in Ogden, Utah. With all proceeds benefiting the Diabetes Foundation, this first annual event is bound for nothing but success!

Another show that brings multiple elements of community and music together will be taking place in Huntington Beach, CA on Friday. If you are one of the many facial hair growers for the annual cancer awareness month in November, dubbed Movember for stylish cancer-fighting mustaches, Don the Beachcomber is the venue for you. For your musical pleasure, Fortunate Youth and Seedless will be playing live, following a Best Mustache and Best Mustache Costume contests. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Primo Beer Movember Foundation!

These are just some of the highlights for your reggae-rock viewing pleasure this weekend. Take a look below at all of the shows from your favorite reggae-rockers this weekend!
