Sonic Guerillas Tropidelic Headline Free Show at Kings Rook Club by Ryan Smith

Hailing from the muddy banks of Ohio’s Cuyahoga River, the group of sonic guerillas known as Tropidelic traverses the Northeast and Midwest in a converted school bus, fusing funk, hip-hop, and reggae into a high-energy amalgam of grooves.

They sold out Cleveland’s legendary Grog Shop in March (and on New Year’s Eve 2014); they’ve opened for bands like 311, SOJA, Slightly Stoopid, and the Wailers; and their 2011 EP Erie Vibes and Irie Tides has seen (er, heard) plenty of radio-airplay around the region.

Sound like seeing them could be a good time? Well, listen up: Tropidelic does its thing at the Kings Rook Club – with openers Vibe + Direct, and for free, too – on Friday, Aug. 28.

Thanks, Rook. – Ryan Smith
