Forecastle Festival 2012 preview: Rebelution

Peace, love, and the jamming sounds of summer are what Rebelution promise Forecastle Festival-goers this Friday, July 13, at 6 p.m., when they perform on the Mast Stage.

When it comes to this reggae band out of southern California, what you see is what you get. Their honest, ingenuous style, bolstered by conscientious lyricism and playful musicality, is perhaps best represented by their break-out album Courage to Grow. 2009's Bright Side of Life and this year's Peace of Mind continue to appeal to listeners -- the latter, a three-in-one album including acoustic and dub versions, sold 16,000 copies in its first week.

About Karen Ellestad
When I was seven and my brother was eight, we both wrote to 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' for a free t-shirt. Two weeks later his arrived in the mail, signed by Carmen Sandiego herself, accompanied by an autographed picture of the cast, an official membership to the 'Gumshoe Club,' and a Rockapella casette tape. I got a postcard.
