I'm with Stoopid: Slightly Stoopid, the beloved Ocean Beach-based roots/reggae band, announced a big hometown show on Wednesday morning. The San Diego Music Award-winning group headlines 91x's Beer X Festival on June 23 at downtown's Waterfront Park -- and it looks to be an all-day, extremely Stoopid event.
The radio station's annual "Beer, Music, Grub" fest runs from 1-10 p.m. and if you prefer your music as dank as your beer, you're in luck: Stick Figure, Pepper, Fishbone, Ethan Tucker Band and Marujah are all set to hit the stage prior to the Stoopid lads. According to 91x, the 21-and-up event will also feature more than 120 craft beer offerings during the fest's tasting portion, which runs from 1-4 p.m.
It's particularly good news for area fans of the band: When they initially announced dates for their upcoming tour, a hometown shindig was notably missing. Last month, they announced that they'd in fact be performing in town on June 23, but conveniently left out any mention of a specific venue so we were all left scratching our heads. It's all making sense now.
Beer X Festival tickets go on sale here to the general public on Friday, April 6, at 10 a.m. PST and options include VIP packages as well -- but we've got a presale head's up for you: If you head to this link and enter the promo code OCEANBEACH, you'll be able to purchase tickets before they go on sale (while supplies last).
Big tours and beer festivals aren't the only thing Slightly Stoopid has been up to lately. The last time we heard from the guys, they were making a "smokable" record out of hashish. In other words, Stoopid is as Stoopid does. But hey, if there's one band who should lay claim to making "high-fi" records, shouldn't it be them?
