Carrying on for 16 years and covering countless miles on tours, The Expendables have shown no sign of slowing down. They will be joined by Stick Figure, Seedless and High-Bred Roots on Wednesday at House of Rock. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The band born out of Santa Cruz, Calif., has enjoyed the laid-back surfing, skating, partying lifestyle and has shared it in the group’s music. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked claim to the California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast while blending reggae, punk rock and 1980s-style dueling guitar solos. The Expendables’ last album release was “Gone Soft,” in May 2012, highlighting the versatile musicianship of the band in an acoustic format.
Stick Figure blends upbeat roots reggae with the reverberating echoes of dub. Seedless, a reggae/dub/rock band from the heart of Southern California’s Orange County, formed in the summer of 2006 and continues to push the limits of reggae music. Corpus Christi’s High-Bred Roots incorporates several genres of music in delivering its smooth reggae/rock/dub vibes.
