Rebelution w/ Iration and Orgone

Jan. 29 Rebelution w/ Iration and Orgone Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. 8 p.m., $16 ADV/$18 DOS, The Santa Barbara-based reggae band, Rebelution, has seen a sudden surge in popularity outside California thanks to its recent collaboration with Bay area hip-hop heavyweights, Zion I. Not to say these guys never put in the work. Since Rebelution’s 2007 debut, Courage To Grow , its fan base has been expanding exponentially due to endless touring and a catalog of independent releases. A combination of Sublime and Peter Tosh, Rebelution’s style is laid back and the kind of music you want playing in the background at a summer barbecue. Appearing on Zion I’s February release, Atomic Clock, Rebelution is currently doing select dates with Zumbi and Amp Live. “Our tour manager met Rebelution at a show. They said they were fans of our music and were into the idea of touring together,” Zumbi of Zion I says. “Our styles are way different, but we both try to spread a positive vibe.”
