Another treat as Dub Apocalypse is putting on a Friday night show, this time with the aid of DJ Mr. Rourke, a nice combo of live and recorded music. Dub Apocalypse does a nice mix of reggae and jazz, great improvisation done over sick reggae basslines. This time they perform in one of my favorite venues, Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, which is reminiscent of an old-school jazz club, with a real intimate setting. They perform real close to the audience, and it is usually a great interaction between band and crowd. Plus for this show we get 2 sets, and Mr. Rourke provides a nice DJ set in between the live music. This should be a great night!!!

From the Facebook event page:

      No problem! I'm thinking about having a meetup when they next play at Chianti's.

    Actually I give this one 10 stars out of 5!!! Great event. Dub Apocalypse is amazing. These are guys from all different groups and they come together like Voltron to make a supergroup. The thick reggae basslines suck you in, but the skills of the musicians keep you there. Lizard Lounge as a venue doesn't disappoint either, nice, intimate and laid back, almost like the band came over to your basement and started performing the best music you ever heard :) Those that missed out, you missed out! I will definitely be having more meetups with this group!

    I got my ticket will call. Does anyone know what time the box office opens? I'm going to get to Porter Sq early so I might go pick it up first to avoid standing in line...

    I recently saw a post that they are down to just a few tickets left. If you are going and do not have a ticket yet, now would be a good time to get one! If they do sell out and you really really really want to see it you can arrive and they can put you on a waiting list. In that case some leave after the first set, so you may be able to join in on the 2nd set if you're a patient person :)

      Thanks Joana. Just a reminder to everyone to get your tickets early using the above link. This group is popular with the Lizard Lounge crowd and these DA shows usually sell out. Also if your plans change, please update your RSVP.

    So is this (ick)... Dubstep?

      I don't know if this qualifies. Check out the reverbnation link and see if you like it. DA plays great music in my opinion

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
