This will be the second year in a row that Stoopid delivers their Ocean Beach vibes to the Blackfoot River. Last year they played an early June date with Stick Figure, Pepper, and surprise special guest, Don Carlos. It was the first reggae show that’d taken place at KettleHouse Amp since its 2017 inception. Check out the photo gallery from the show here.
Slightly Stoopid has earned their spot as one of the top reggae rock acts in the world, headlining festivals and touring internationally year after year. Originally discovered and signed by the late Bradley Nowell of Sublime, Slightly has since started Stoopid Records, and have released 13 albums — with 2018’s Everyday Life, Everyday People topping the Billboard Reggae Albums chart.

Rodrigo y Gabriela
Since they left Mexico for Ireland in 1999, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as one of the most popular acoustic instrumental bands in the world. They have sold in excess of 1.5 million albums worldwide, and have sold out venues like the Hollywood Bowl, the Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Le Zenith in Paris on numerous occasions.
Rodrigo y Gabriela are currently celebrating the release of Mettavolution. The white-hot new album brings together Rod and Gab’s shimmering, hummingbird flourishes and extraordinary engine room rhythm section, laser focused on melody, energy and beat. There is not an ounce of excess baggage on the fresh, dynamic tunes that Rod and Gab present here, which blend metal, jazz and Hispanic roots music in their own unique, unmistakable style.
