The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

Reggae-Rock is keeping us warm this weekend with some fresh new tours and vibrant shows. Cutting straight through this winter with stages sparkling with our favorite bands, The Pier found the venues you need to be at this weekend! Check out who is bringing the heat the last few days of January in this week’s edition of The Pier Weekend Show Locator.

Iration knows what we are talking about when we say bringing the heat. The Heatseekers Tour 2013 is starting up this weekend in California, Arizona, and Texas. Yes, three different states in three days! Joining them on this brand spanking new tour are Reggae-Rock touring staples Passafire and Pacific Dub. With Iration’s new album Automatic nearing an official release, the crowd is bound to hear some new material the Hawaiians have been working on! Passafire and Pacific Dub released new albums in 2012, so with all the new tunes and without a doubt our old favorites, the Heatseekers Tour 2013 will be a tour not to miss!

The San Diego, California Reggae duo of Tribal Seeds and Stick Figure have been playing Sold-Out shows all throughout their Winer West Coast Tour. This weekend, they are in the Southwest after performing three-straight days of capacity crowds in Aspen, Colorado Springs and Boulder, Colorado earlier this week. If you are in New Mexico, that is the only date remaining on tour with tickets still available! Sunday night’s show in San Carlos, Arizona is already Sold-Out! Perhaps you didn’t make it through the venue doors this particular tour, make sure you catch Tribal Seeds playing direct support for Slightly Stoopid this coming spring.

Mike Pinto is starting the second weekend of his acoustic tour, and is getting out of the cold by heading to Florida! After some winter shows in the Northeast, Pinto is heading South this weekend before travelling West. A show last night in St. Petersburg, tonight in Sanford, and tomorrow in Satellite Beach is the game plan for this weekend-if you are looking for a night out with some quality reggae music! A night of Mike Pinto’s acoustic-reggae-rock plus his knack for unique songwriting will keep you with lyrics in your head long after the performance!

For all the Southern Californians that are getting their doses of chilly weather with sunshine filled weekends, this weekend is supposed to cool way down but we have a reason for you to leave the house. Tonight marks another show by the infamous L.B.D.A. formerly known as Long Beach Dub All-Stars! At Brixton in Redondo Beach, L.B.D.A. (known today as Long Beach Dub Alumni) will be joined up with Beyond I Sight, Special C, and Los Angelitos. L.B.D.A. fulfills Reggae-Rock history by streamlining straight from the legendary Sublime, who kept the sound alive. 10-years later, after a reunited show at Shoreline Jam in September, new members and old ones jump on stage together to bring that original music feel to the scene. To catch music that captures memories from years ago, or to simply hear it for the first time, keep your night open for L.B.D.A!

These are just some of the highlights of this weekend’s Show Locator! Plus, remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend.
