Mean green reg­gae ma­chine: The Gr

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Green was formed by six mu­si­cians in Oahu, Hawaii, in 2009. All but the drum­mer (ap­par­ently, he’s got enough re­spon­si­bil­ity on his hands) are song­writ­ers, and four of them are singers. The Green is cur­rently pro­mot­ing its third re­lease, Hawai’i ’13, which charted in the top 10 on Bill­board’s list of best-sell­ing reg­gae al­bums of 2014. The record show­cases the dif­fer­ent song­writ­ing styles of the band mem­bers and re­flects their cul­tural at­tach­ment to the place they call home — it opens with a chanted in­vo­ca­tion to the an­ces­tors, sung in Hawai­ian. The Green per­forms at Sky­light (139 W. San Fran­cisco St., 505-982-0775) at 7:30 p.m., Mon­day, Feb. 2. Tick­ets for the all-ages show cost $16 and are avail­able at www.hold­myt­ San Diego-based Through the Roots opens. — L.B.
