Tomorrow night we return to Nectar Lounge once again, this time to welcome everyone back to the fall. We stumbled upon the photo above, which is from four years ago (2008), when we performed at Nectar Lounge for the very first time. Since then we’ve shared the stage with Third World and Ky-Mani Marley, headlined a couple Earth Day celebrations (and even planted a Japanese maple in the patio), and more important than anything else, we’ve met so many of you for the very first time at one of our favorite venues here in Seattle. We’ve even heard stories about couples meeting for the first time at one of our shows and going on to get married, even using “Love You Better” as the theme! What?!
We hope everyone and their mom (which happens more often than not) comes out tomorrow night to celebrate life and love, along with our friends joining us on the bill. Our braddah Maveryck will kick off the night with “feel-good frequencies” he calls Trizz-Hop. Look out for his self-produced debut album, Bliss, set to drop in late October 2012.
Next is the one-man-dub-champion who aptly goes by DUBCHAMP. The man behind the drums with reggae legend Clinton Fearon will be dubbing all by himself – with drums, samplers, loopers, and more! He’ll also be rocking the party all night long as his alter ego, DJ Million.
Going on right before us will be our braddahs Two Story Zori, who are currently back in the studio working on their new album. Check out their single “Falling,” off their first EP release. Pak & The Lolos just shared the stage with members of Two Story Zori this past Wednesday at `Ohana, along with members of Clinton Fearon, Adrian Xavier, The Highlife Band, and Stay Grounded.
See you all tomorrow night at Nectar Lounge! It’s going to be nuts! Get your advance tickets here – they’re going fast! Show your student ID at the door and get in for the special back-to-school ticket price of just 7 bucks!
