Slightly Stoopid at Roseland 8.20.2008

Last night I stopped by Roseland for an excellent reggae-rock show featuring one of my favorite band's Slightly Stoopid. The band was joined by Hawaiian reggae trio Pepper and dub stars Sly and Robbie as part of the Summer Tailgate Tour. The show was packed tight with a crowd of young teens and more than a handful of drama as people were thrown (and dragged) out throughout the show.

The opening band Pepper reminded immediately of Sublime (without the hip-hop element) and impressed me with a couple of great tracks and unstoppable energy. After an hour long set Slightly Stoopid took the stage and brought their A game to town mixing up classics like "Ese Loco" and a few tracks off their new album Slightly Not Stoned Enough To Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid.

It was great to see the Ocean Beach crew in New York and they seemed like they were having a great time as they jammed mixing it up with sounds from punk rock and blues to dub and ska. It was a classic show and from the looks of the young crowd a sound that will keep growing. Check out my full review of Pepper on Short & Sweet NYC.
