Passafire with Dubbest (Reggae Night)
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Animas City Theatre Presents Passafire with Dubbest Proof of vaccination (Physical card or picture of card on phone is accepted) or a negative PCR test with 72 hour time stamp needed to enter venue Passafire's latest single, Keepin' On, serves as a mission statement for the veteran rock-reggae outfit as they continue to forge ahead through their second decade of reimagining the boundaries of the current rock-reggae landscape. Unflinchingly optimistic, Keepin' On shows off what Passafire does best: expertly blending the macro/political and the micro/personal. The rock-steady anthem weaves together Passafire's take on global warming, economic uncertainty, and technology's threat to personal privacy with the band's dedication to survival, intent on thriving by any means necessary. "We are very grateful to be where we're at with awesome fans that sustain and support us," said Passafire's bassist Will Kubley. "But every band wants to get to the next level" quickly pointed out lead guitarist/lead singer Ted Bowne. "We keep reaching new milestones and having new meaningful events, but we still have many ambitions we want to achieve. So we've got to keep going until we do." Passafire is set to embark on their Keepin' On Tour in spring of 2020, and will play both coasts and the Midwest, as well as several festival dates. Since forming in 2003, Passafire has released a total of six studio albums and boasts credits like producing with Paul Leary (Sublime, Pepper, U2, Slightly Stoopid), #1 albums on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae charts, and sharing stages with rock-reggae OGs 311 and Pepper, and legends Toots & the Maytals, the Wailers, and John Brown's Body, who in the band's early years, inspired them to explore reggae with a gritty edge. "We like to mix tight, clean reggae grooves with distorted guitar riffs" insisted Ted, "We're '90s kids," added Will, "we love rock, hip-hop and metal equally. It was always natural for us to straddle the line between genres." Passafire's name is a take-off on The Wailers' classic Catch a Fire album and the band's hypervigilance towards honoring the culture without appropriating it combined with their unwavering dedication to the expansion of their skills as musicians, producers and songwriters, has led the band to create a sound that stands out from their peers.

Dorm room jam sessions have turned into a decade plus on the road--from humble coffee shops to theaters, festivals, roadhouses and clubs all across the country. Over time those sounds and influences have crept more and more into the bluegrass beginnings of the band, morphing into the seasoned eclecticism of Say Your Mind. The new songs are quinnessential Head for the Hills; genre-stradling, lyrically deep, and danceable, with a crew of collaborators bringing the best of Colorado acoustic, roots, and soul music together. Head for the Hills numerous festival appearances include notables Telluride Bluegrass Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, South by Southwest, FloydFest, RockyGrass, DelFest, Summer Camp Music Festival, WinterWonderGrass Festival, Blue Ox Music Festival, Northwest String Summit, Strawberry Music Festival, Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival, Folk Alliance, Grandoozy and many more.
