Music: REVIEW Dirty Heads

by Megan Waldrep

Dirty Heads at the Santa Barbara Bowl were the surprising highlights of the night.

High energy, happy vibes kept the crowd on their toes until headliner, Slightly Stoopid hit the stage.

But don’t let the line-up fool you.

Dirty Heads brought unexpected diversity, switching up jams and keeping it fresh for each song – Honestly, they showed Slightly Stoopid how to put on a reggae show.
