Rebelution/Iration/Orgone

8 p.m. Tuesday, February 1. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.

The notion of a white reggae band from the California coast may conjure memories of Sublime, but Santa Barbara's Rebelution plays it far straighter than its genre-blending forebears. The band's brand of reggae has cleaner upstrokes and tighter corners than dub, and leader Eric Rachmany's guitar solos show traces of heavy metal and Santana-esque groove-rock alongside reggae's steady syncopations. You'll never confuse Rebelution for dreadlocked island-dwellers, and the band wisely doesn't attempt to channel the Wailers too closely. This Pageant show is a part of a gathering of like-minded bands called the Winter Greens Tour (and those greens have nothing to do with spruce trees or vegetables, if you follow). Fellow Santa Barbara reggae group Iration will perform, as will funk outfit Orgone, whose last few trips to St. Louis helped the band build a buzz around town.
