Not everything that happened in 2020 was bad. Case in point: Tampa roots-reggae scene staple Tribal Style released a new album, Future Roots.

This weekend, the band will attempt to get you out of the pandemic-life funk with a Saturday set at South Pasadena’s JahVa Studio. The band’s roots-reggae version of The Pixies “Where is My Mind?” is a solution to a lot of society’s ailments. Add rum punch and food by Island Flavors and Tings, and voila, you’re cured (your mindset at least, best to still get that vaccine when you can).

Though the event is indoors, the space is large enough to be socially-distanced and still feel safe. Plus there is a mask requirement and temperature checks at the door

Jammin’ January: Tribal Style. Sat. Jan. 16, Free. JahVa Studio, South Pasadena. INFO
