The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

The Pier Weekend Show Locator is back with a whole new compilation of reggae-rock shows that you must attend! Tours, new music, and songs that we are emotionally attached to, are exactly the remedy to our busy schedules during the week. Check out what goodies are packed in the Show Locator this weekend!


Fayuca is trucking on through Northern California this weekend on their Winter West Coast Tour. The Phoenix trio defines their unique style as reggae-rock-Latin-alternative and their four studio albums are comprised of just that! After joining Fervor Records, Barrio Sideshow was released in May 2013 and Fayuca continues to share their vibrant, eclectic music live. Stopping this weekend in Salinas, Sacramento, and Redding, Fayuca is well on their way north as they share their take on reggae-rock with a twist of cultural roots!

Looking for a show that stars a band you may not have seen live? If you live in Florida, then John Brown’s Body is one you must add to the ‘experienced them live’ list! John Brown’s Body, or JBB, will be in Jacksonville for a show tonight at Jack Rabbits and will be at Virginia Key Grassroots Festival in Miami tomorrow. This band got their start back in 1995 but the reggae-dub-future roots group is still rocking charts with albums like Kings and Queens, dropping just last April and debuting at #1. With plenty of successful albums and tours over the year, JBB is exclusive to their musical style. By incorporating a distinctive writing ideology with their take on electronic-dub music, this band has been doing their own thing for years! Catch this tenured band live to witness a one of a kind approach to dub!

Passafire, Ballyhoo!, and Pacific Dub are finishing up the last three days of the Winter Brewhaha this weekend! After a coast-to-coast tour, the trio will be finishing up in tonight in Chicago as well as Saturday and Sunday in Ohio. Passafire’s success with the release of Vines in 2013, set up the tour to be an opportunity to catch Georgia’s very own perform the latest hits and successful fan favorites. The tour also featured new music thanks to Ballyhoo!’s release of Pineapple Grenade last year. Knowing Ballyhoo!’s fans, anytime they perform live, it’s a rager! Catch them as they celebrate the end of another successful tour with new tunes, classic hits, and hopefully a collaboration to close out Winter 2014!
