Don’t Miss Jam-O de Mayo ft. Roots of a Rebellion & CBDB | TONIGHT @ Exit/ In

Roots Of A Rebellion-2016-620

If the current state of affairs in the world today has you feeling down, and you need a little reminder that there are still people looking to spread positivity through song everywhere they go, look no further than local jam reggae-rock outfit Roots of a Rebellion, and their very special Jam-O de Mayo show tonight, May 5 at Exit/ In. With help from Alabama based prog/jam rockers CBDB in the warmup spot, it promises to be a great night of music, chock full of heady licks. Tunes start at 9 p.m., and tickets to the 18+ show are available here, but make haste, because ROAR’s local following seems to be growing with every show, and you’ll want a good spot for this one.

We also recently spoke to primary singer and guitarist Austin Smith, who told us that a new ROAR Summer Sampler is in the works (they did something similar in ’13). It will feature b-sides from their 2016 release, A Brother’s Instinct, plus some songs performed live, instrumentals, and reggae dubs. They’re shooting for 10-15 tracks in total, and they’ll release the sampler on their Bandcamp page for pay-what-you-want. Proceeds will help the Tennessee Reggae lynchpins on their East Coast tour, scheduled already in June. So catch the local favorites now, beofore they hit the road, for a slice of Nashville’s surpassingly vibrant jam and reggae scene.

Roots of a Rebellion and  CBDB will perform tonight, May 5 at Exit/ In. The show is 18+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $15.

Catch Roots of a Rebellion w/ Floralorix & Chinese Connection Dub Embassy | TONIGHT @ Exit/In

Roots Of A Rebellion-2016-620

With the goal of keeping their stellar momentum going from 2016 into 2017, middle Tennessee reggae rockers Roots of a Rebellion are hosting a killer night of music with the most irie vibes you’re likely to catch this far north of Jamaica. In celebration of the incomparable Bob Marley’s upcoming birthday (Feb. 6 to be precise), ROAR plus their like minded amigos Floralorix, and Chinese Connection Dub Embassy will be playing very special versions of Marley songs, surely to be  jammed out Music City style. The 18+ show is happening tonight, Feb. 3 at Exit/In, and tickets are available for just $12.

If you’re even a slight fan of reggae, or you just love Bob Marley, this concert is a must. More importantly, if you answered yes to either/both of these question, the gig is a great way for you to get acquainted with the Tennessee reggae movement… if you haven’t already. Two of its biggest local promoters are playing this bill, and we’ve covered them both multiple times before. Read on after the jump for more on that, and we hope to see you spreading peace and love this evening at the show.
