7/8/10 Roots

Homepage: Zaguar

As you may or may not know, Dri moved out to San Francisco last year and started a new band called Extra Classic. The vibe of Extra Classic is Roots/Reggae/Dub, an in-the-pocket exploration of the shifting planes and ringing echos of Jamaican music, with all of the vocal-layering and wise-woman presence from "Smoke Rings". She and her partner (and Extra Classic bassist) Alex deLanda have been recording all analog-to-tape a full record we can't wait to hear. For a taste, check out the Extra Classic MySpace. For a full helping, don't miss the three Extra Classic shows this weekend: Friday, July 9th at the Taproom in Lawrence; Saturday, July 10th at the Czar Bar in Kansas City, Mo (Early Show!); and Sunday, July 11th at the Slowdown in Omaha, Nebraska.

If anyone takes any pics or video, put a link in the Comments!

Light us up, Extra Classic!
