Outside the doors of the Visulite Theatre, all was quiet. You would have had little to suspect was going on inside, but the marquee above the doors read, in all capitals, “YO MAMA’S BIG FAT BOOTY BAND,” and anyone who knew the Asheville funk sextet knew that the quiet wouldn’t last for long.
(Los Angeles)It was dance, dance, dance with LA-based polyrhythmic cumbia-rock-funk-merengue band Buyepongo and electroacústica Colombian music group Sidestepper. Both dance pavilions at the California Plaza were elbow to elbow with writhing crowds that spilled over into the VIP seats and the picnic areas, rocking out to music that just wouldn’t let you stay seated.
Nebraska’s own 311 spent their hot holiday roaming the highs and lows of American soil, stopping in just about everyone’s city for their 18th consecutive summer tour. The 2017 version of this tour is entitled the Unity Tour, which is fitting as the band is currently promoting their twelfth studio album MOSAIC. Opening for the raggae rock legends was Danish alt outfit New Politics and the progressive rock band Passafire.
When I heard that the Stereophonics were going to play at the Plymouth Pavilions as one of two warm up dates before their run of festival appearances, I instantly purchased a ticket. I was one of the lucky ones who had seen them play at the Pavilions a few years previous and that was an amazing night, but this time it was to be even better.
See what does
