G. Love and Special Sauce/Ripe

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 9 p.m. 2017

Not many of the alt-rock and hip-hop acts that MTV made famous in the '90s are still kicking. G. Love & Special Sauce is the exception. Twenty years ago, the singer-guitarist G. Love and his two-piece band released their self-titled debut and had an instant hit with the woozy blues-meets-hip-hop number "Cold Beverage." In the two decades since that album's release, Love and crew have consistently toured and recorded; they received a good second wind in 2003 when Love and singer-songwriter Jack Johnson collaborated on the Johnson tune "Rodeo Clowns." Love's 2014 album reunited with with Special Sauce guys James "Jimi Jazz" Prescott and drummer Jeffrey "The Houseman" Clemens for the first time in eight years. The group's been going strong ever since and dropped the noisy Love Saves the Day in 2015. (Niesel)
