March 14 The Dirty Heads w/ New Politics, T.U.G.G. Slowdown, 729 N 14th 8 p.m., $16 adv / $18 DOS, 345.7569, theslowdown.com The members of Dirty Heads have been together since their freshman year of high school — that far off distant land of 1996. While most high school bands are content to fight a lot and break up, the punk-rap-reggae fusionists in Dirty Heads chose instead to hone their craft, playing music that’s like a latter day Sublime. Recently named one of the best bands of 2010 by Rolling Stone, the group has broken through with their single “Lay Me Down.” Also on the bill are Danish alt-rockers New Politics, themselves finding success with single “Yeah Yeah Yeah” and Wisconsin reggae band T.U.G.G.
