Friday Jan 19
The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

If you are reading this you must have survived the end of the world! Let’s get back on track with a night on the town with some reggae-rock shows! Our relentlessly touring, positive minded, favorite bands are out and about this weekend. Check out this week’s edition of The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

If today marks the end of the world in any way, what better way to go out than spending a night out at a show! San Diego will be a safe haven for bands on Friday night hosting two major shows. The first will feature San Diego’s own Through The Roots, jammin’ in North County San Diego at The Jumping Turtle tonight with San Marcos, CA locals Reeform. The reggae duo, along with Andy Mack are hitting up a low-key venue for a night of high volume reggae-rock! With Reeform’s new single “All The Same” (officially featuring Casey Sullivan of Seedless) and Through The Roots’ experienced knowledge from the road after a great year on multiple tours, the pair will have plenty of gifts to give the fans right before Christmas. In nearby Ocean Beach, Winston’s will be hosting The Pier’s 2012 Breakout Artist of the Year: Natural Vibrations. Joining the hawaiian band will be the Northern California band, Clear Conscience, who was recently featured at Cali Roots ’12.

Friday night will also feature Fishbone getting crazy with their End of the World Party at Inner Mission in San Francisco! The Pier’s 2011 Life Achievement Award winners are still rocking and they will be getting loud on Saturday in the coastal city of Caspar, California. With these shows scheduled for the weekend and two more in Southern California, West Coast fans need to get tickets ready before the band leaves with their horns, skankin’ beats, and thumping bass to the East Coast for a spring 2013 tour! So catch Fishbone and their “Red Hot” show before they leave town!

Josh Heinrichs and SkillinJah will be representing the Midwest this Saturday and Sunday in Texas, with lone star state jam band Preston Hall and The DF All-Stars. Austin and Corpus Christi will be feeling that reggae-rock love that soothes the soul! Josh Heinrichs, GanJah Records owner and a nominee for The Pier’s Break-Out Artist of the Year, was recently announced to join next year’s California Roots Festival in Monterey, California. Others from his label including SkillinJah will also be attending. With SkillinJah’s new album, Skillmatic, and GanJah Records artists making a name for themselves, Texas is in for some true, down to earth reggae this weekend!
