The Pier Weekend Show Locator!

The Pier Weekend Show Locator is back for another weekend collection of reggae-rock shows from around the globe! The hardest decision to make is which one to attend! Check out what we are talking about inside our 210th straight Friday Show Locator!


311’s Summer Tour is well underway! With scheduled dates to visit all parts of the country from now until August 15, 311 will be focusing on the Southwest this weekend. The band will be hitting up Vegas on Saturday at Mandalay Bay Beach and Sunday in Scottsdale, AZ. After their recent release of Stereolithic on March 11 (3/11!), the 11th studio album hit the ground running! Fans have enjoyed the new record, which is mixed by drummer Chad Sexton and producer & collaborator Scott Ralston, all under the independent, 311 Records. Stay tuned with 311 as they take on a U.S. Tour with plenty of amazing supporting acts this summer!

As diverse as our reggae-rock genre is, there is an element that needs to be highlighted: the female vocals! Great to know we have Anuhea, lead singer Nancy Rae from Papafish, and HIRIE to fuse the divide! HIRIE hailing from Hawaii but currently located in San Diego, brings a new style to the scene. Reggae-pop with infusions of ukulele, saxophone, trombone, and a full band shows off that unique sound that HIRIE has to offer. This weekend, HIRIE will be surfing down the coast of California from Fresno to San Diego and back to Hermosa Beach. Catch the music waves this weekend!

Also hitting up Hermosa Beach’s Saint Rocke this weekend is Beyond I Sight and Gonzo. Friday night will feature Southern California artists plus Big Mountain from San Diego. Starting up the weekend in Hermosa, Gonzo’s solo artist talents has brought him to Beyond I Sight and then to his newest endeavor with Tribal Seeds. After the recent release RED on June 3rd, Gonzo will have more than enough material to share at the show with Beyond I Sight, supporting with instrumentation. Check out this intimate venue along the coast tonight!

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
