Event Archive - GIRAFFE AFTERMATH ALBUM RELEASE w/guests KUTAPIRA & REDEYE EMPIRE: Giraffe Aftermath, Kutapira, Redeye Empire
Following years of solid reggae/dub/hip hop shows that have been slowly turning into jaw-dropping performances, Giraffe Aftermath will finally be showcasing their latest musical masterpiece to Vancouver and area on Wed. June 18th, 2014.
The band is on the cusp of becoming more known outside their usual musical community. This upcoming album release is following a successful US tour of California in the spring of 2013 and their fourth straight upcoming appearance on Victoria's Annual Ska Festival.
On this special night Giraffe Aftermath will be joined by the afro-cuban sounds of Kutapira (with members from both The Boom Booms and The Ponderosas) + Redeye Empire.
It's not very often that you see all three of these talented bands all on the same bill. So when you put them together it makes for a show that is not too be missed.
