Slightly Stoopid, the flagship band for California reggae, rock, punk and hip hop is hitting the road once again.
After spending the summer of 2016 on the road, touring outdoor amphitheaters nationwide with the SOJA, Fortunate Youth and Zion-I with The Grouch and Eligh, Slightly Stoopid will embark on a fall tour.
For this upcoming tour, Slightly Stoopid is welcoming back fellow Southern California band, Fortunate Youth and Perro Bravo as special guests, which happens to be fronted by longtime mentor Michael “Miguel” Happoldt. Happoldt was the original producer and engineer for Sublime and the band’s 40 oz. Freedom album, as well as founder of Sublime’s Skunk Records, which originally signed Slightly Stoopid in the mid 1990s.
Seen as some of the original pioneers of the American based reggae movement from the early 2000s, Slightly Stoopid has many admirers, and Fortunate Youth has long looked up to their fellow Southern California brethren.
It certainly must have been surreal performing as one of the special guests and supporting acts for the Return of the Red Eye Tour over the summer. And, now Slightly Stoopid and Fortunate Youth will try to repeat that incredible summer-long feat with their fall tour dates, beginning November 4th.
The tour will begin on the West Coast, kicking off in Seattle at The Showbox. Other notable tour stops include Portland, and California dates in Santa Cruz, Chico, Ventura and a hometown show in San Diego.
Slightly Stoopid will also be returning to Mexico in December to host their annual Closer to the Sun Festival, which will feature performances by Dirty Heads, Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, Matisyahu, and more special guests. However, this destination music festival has been sold out for quite some time. For those interested in capturing that festival experience in an intimate show just before winter, the aforementioned fall tour dates is the prime opportunity.
