Floating between the unlikely goal posts of roots-reggae and roots-rock is Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad's deep, deep in the pocket (we're talking way down deep, with the lint, pennies, and Tic Tacs) groove. When it comes to the one drop, no one is tighter. When it comes to these hometown heroes, tackling country, the groove somehow remains amidst the twang and lonesome. Good vibes all around.
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Danielle Ponder and the Tomorrow People, Funknut, Subsoil, Level 7, and Extended Family all play on Thursday, December 31, at the German House, 315 Gregory Street. 8 p.m. $20-$30. ticketfly.com; livepanda.com.
