Slightly Stoopid is on tour this spring with dates on both coasts and more than a few stops in between. In addition to headlining gigs at clubs and amphitheaters across the country, Slightly Stoopid will also play a number of high-profile spring festivals including The Hangout Music Festival on May 20 in Gulf Shores, AL and Hookahville in Thornville, OH on May 29.
First up though, the band will host their annual 4/20 show in their home state of California. Set to take place on Wednesday April 20, 2011 at Los Angeles’ legendary Greek Theatre, Slightly Stoopid’s “420 At The Greek” show will help kick-off the Greek’s 80th anniversary celebration season. Joining Slightly Stoopid for this historic event will be none other than the legendary original Bad Brains and Jamaican dancehall icon Barrington Levy.
When not on the road, Slightly Stoopid has been hunkered down at the band’s headquarters in San Diego, hard at work on their seventh studio album. Just minutes from the surf and fully equipped with a half-pipe skate ramp, video game room and recording studio, it’s the perfect environment to spark the band’s creativity. Collaborating in the studio of late: G. Love, Cypress Hill, Don Carlos, Del the Funky Homosapien, Barrington Levy, Ian Neville, Collie Buddz and more. The album is expected late summer 2011.
Formed in 1995 in San Diego, CA’s Ocean Beach by childhood friends Miles Doughty (guitar, bass, vocals) and Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Slightly Stoopid has become one of the most influential and progressive improvisational musical outfits on the tour circuit. The band has sold over 750,000 albums and now releases all material on Doughty and McDonald’s own record label, Stoopid Records.
