The Expendables/Through the Roots/Pacific Dub

When: Tue., March 6, 7:30 p.m. 2018

The Expendables have rolled through town several times in recent years, always offering up a fun evening of soulful reggae, punk and balls-to-the-wall shredfests. It’s that amalgamation that has kept the band exciting for more than a decade. To the uninitiated, 2004’s Gettin’ Filthy is a worthy intro to the music. Cue up “Let Her Go” and/or “Sacrifice” for a taste of the touchstone. Guitarist and singer Geoff Weers puts enough transformative emotion into the lyrics to nearly bring you to the Pacific shoreline. Clearly, the band’s Santa Cruz roots play out nicely in the music, and that’s true on the band’s latest, In This Moment, as well. You can see the Expendables picking up a few new electronic tricks, but the California vibes are still there in full. (Eric Sandy)
