Slightly Stoopid & Atmosphere Kickin’ Up Dust Tour @ The Tabernacle

While it’s a rare commodity for a band to tour as consistently as Slightly Stoopid, the group’s diligent commitment to live music provides some insight into why it’s been a few years since the release of their last studio album. But on August 14, 2012, the Ocean Beach, California-based group led by co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald dropped their latest studio effort, Top of the World. As heard throughout the disc, the layoff between albums has not affected the group’s penchant for cooking up the tasty fusion and massive groove that permeates Stoopid’s trademark sound. Doors open at 6pm and the show starts at 7pm.

Like Clockwork @ The Drunken Unicorn

Also performing is Beach Party (!) and Cinema Novo. Tickets are $5 and doors open at 9pm.
