Friday March 5th, The Late Ones and Dread Kennedy took the stage at SLO Brew Rock in breathtaking San Luis Obispo. The weather was nice and the vibes were high as people waiting for the show enjoyed the delicious beers and food that this brewery is known for throughout California. This was a special show on TLO’s Lately EP Tour, as it was livestreamed by Cali Roots for everyone who could not make it out. It was also the first show with limited capacity indoors for SLO Brew.
Even though it was limited indoor seating, the outdoor area of the brewery had plenty of space for people to watch and listen to the show live on the available TVs.
The show started a little early with a short surprise set by Shakamon. Shaka got the crowd up, dancing and singing along in no time. Next up was Dread Kennedy. DK and his extremely powerful voice shook the place. It is always a good time when Kennedy is onstage, as he always involves the crowd and likes to joke around, always making the crowd feel like family. Finally, the main event. The Late Ones are always a special show as they advocate Justice, Freedom and Equality in their music. The way that the three dance and sing on the stage is nothing short of a work of art. TLO shows are ones not to miss! Their shows leave the audiences always wanting more.
If you happened to miss this particular show, don’t be bummed! It is available on Cali Roots YouTube Channel to watch anytime!
