Always exploring the different avenues of reggae music, SOJA is not an act to be missed.
The Ziggens – 2/11
The Ziggens are a “cowpunksurfabilly” band from Orange County. What does that mean? A heavy dose of tasty jams for your ears.
Contemporaries of Sublime, The Ziggens have been filling Southern California with love since the early ‘90s.
Wake up and smell their set at the Merrow.
Boogarins – 2/11
Brazilians, The Boogarins, bring a different tongue to psychedelic surf rock. Their name comes from a jasmine flower found in Brazil.
They released their debut album As Plantas Que Curam (The Plants That Heal) in 2013 and followed up with their 2015 Manual ou Guia Livre de Dissolução dos Sonhos (Manual or Free Guide to Dissolution of Dreams).
See them while they’re stateside at Soda Bar.
Creepy Creeps – 2/11
The Creepy Creeps is a garage surf-rock band straight out of San Diego that believes every concert should truly be an event. If you took the theme song for The Munsters and added some danger, you’d be close to what The Creepy Creeps sound like.
Their high-energy performances are filled with exuberant showmanship. Every time you see The Creepy Creeps, you will see go-go dancers. It’s just part of their charm.
With groovy tunes that will get you moving, just try to hit this show and stay off of your feet.
