The Aggrolites and the Skatalites
There’s a good reason why the Belly Up has hosted L.A.’s “dirty reggae” rockers the Aggrolites at least once a year since 2011. Their sound encompasses the widest array of classic rocksteady ska, from 1960s Kingston to 1970s London. It’s been around two years since their last release, a trio of singles including the instant setlist staple “Aggro Reggae Party,” but rumor has it that they’ll debut new material from an upcoming full-length for the Solana Beach crowd on Sunday, October 15. The Skatalites open, a Jamaican reggae band with roots dating back over 50 years.
