Dreds were flying, ganja was burning and bass was pumping thick through speakers for the 2012 Unity Tour featuring Soja, Slightly Stoopid and 311 at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine on Friday night.
San Diego-based ska-punk/reggae rockers Slightly Stoopid lived up to their reputation blasting stoner rock with drippy, psychedelic sound effects. Most of their tracks came from their newest album Top of the World, which was released August 14th, as well as tracks from other albums such as the all-time favorite Everything You Need. Throughout the show, they did not hesitate to pass around several fat blunts to the crowd (am I surprised? Maybe jealous for once I wasn't in the pit). They even busted a six-foot glass bong that safely rested on security guard's shoulders and extended right into the crowd. Much obliged, the crowd clamored with excitement and those locked into row seating seemed a little green with envy while people in the pit puffed away.
