Sat. November 25th 2006 @ Capital Ballroom Victoria BC (No Minors)
9:30pm - 2am doors at 9pm
This kick ass show is going to be the tour send off show for ONE DROP before they go down the west coast of the USA to play some dates in early to mid December.
In addition to the stacked bill of local talent you see here we are especially pleased to host BURNT from San Diego, California that will be performing music with reggae, hip hop and punk influences. Burnt are also one of the most socially active and politically conscious bands in the reggae scene in San Diego. One Drop will be doing some dates with them down in California as well.
Following a series of sold out local shows; a successful ICA Folk Festival performance and notable appearances with artists such as Xavier Rudd and The Beautiful Girls, Victoria's own Current Swell are stoked to be a part of One Drop's send off tour.
Arbutus Trio that have quickly made waves in the music scene locally and throughout BC will be in the house giving us their unique blend of reggae with influences ranging from The Slackers, Alpha Blondie and ofcourse One Drop:)
Finally we are extremely excited to have KIA KADIRI back on the bill with One Drop since her last collaboration with them back in 2002! Kia Kadiri is one of Canada's most revered hip hop MCs and she will be performing both a solo set and some tracks with One Drop!
Get ready for one phat ass paaaarty!!!
