OK kids, shall we call it a snow day? Guess that’s up to the snow jah.
Class assembles at 9 p.m. today at the Lakeview Loft, above DART liquors, at 148 Highway 50, Stateline, Nevada.
The Sacto Storytellers and South Shore’s The Irieites will present tonight’s reggae-infused lesson as part of the FNCTN Winter Music Series. Tickets are $15 at the door — half price if it’s a snow day.
On Wednesday, folks at FNCTN’s Weather Central provided this report: “El Nino strikes again and FNCTN will be hookin’ up all our friends on snow days. (Thursday) looks like a snow day, so round up the squad and join us a Lakeview Loft for live music from the Sacto Storytellers and The Irieites.”
The Storytellers are a collective of Sacramento roots, reggae and ska musicians who “speak out about world issues and promote peace, unity and love.”
“Jam out with us at the cozy Lakeview Loft,” the Storytellers posted on Facebook. “There may even be snow falling again to add to the experience. We can’t wait.” There’s that snow thing again. Remember Jamaica’s Olympic bobsled team?
The Irieites, an acoustic roots-reggae duo, will get the party going at 10 p.m. Luis Rubio and Roland Hass both deliver vocals and play guitar and percussion, “with a heart for music with a message of truth, love and life.” The Storytellers perform from 11:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
“Guest DJ’s will keep you dancing late night — we are in Nevada, after all,” the promoters promise.
On Friday night, a Roger That Bassment Party is set for Xhale Lounge at Stateline as part of the FNCTN series. The show will feature electronic dance music from Manny Maze and Joyzu. In the meantime, pray for snow. Doors open at 9 p.m.
