Dream Concert # 2: Bob Marley, Sublime And Pepper

 The  return of spring and the coming of summer mean the arrival of one of my favorite leisure pastimes… sunny afternoon and warm, late night bike rides.  I love hopping on my beach cruiser, pedaling aimlessly, and heading in no particular direction without a care in the world other than what lies ahead on the adventure.  Yesterday brought Carolina blue skies, a calm ocean breeze, and the perfect blend of not being too hot or too cold.  So, I grabbed my iPod shuffle along with my new portable speaker (more on that fantastic purchase later), and let my white framed, lime green rimmed cruiser lead the way.  Certain situations require certain music, and what I was about to embark on was no different.  Well bless my lucky stars!  The shuffle already had everything I needed on it:  Pepper’s Kona Town, Sublime’s Second Hand Smoke, and Bob Marley’s Gold (Disc 2).  As I was passing along the marsh, breathing in the salty air, I spotted an oak tree that looked like it was in need of a good climbing.  The sun glimmered off the Spanish moss in front of me where I posted up as I jammed to the ideal mix of music that reminds me of lazy days, island style.  I got to thinking.  How cool would it be to see these three bands together in concert?!  It would be like taking three different generations of reggae, rock, dub, and punk and rolling them up in big ole’ blunt of high times, hot music, and even hotter women.   And so, here it is… my dream concert, vol. 2. 

Location:  The Volcom House on Oahu’s North Shore
I’ve seen photos and videos of Pepper performing here, and it doesn’t seem like you could find a more tropical paradise for a concert of this kind with 100 of your closet friends.  Plus, it comes with a spectacular view of one of the world’s finest waves. 
Band #1: Pepper
The boys from Kona, HI put on a show that is all about fun.  You’ll dance, laugh, rock out, hopefully make out, and have an all around great time.  And there’s so many chicks! 
Setlist:
1. Ho’s
2. Sitting on the Curb
3. Green Hell
4. Punk Rock Cowboy
5. Rent
6. Stormtrooper
7. Point and Shoot
8. Stone Love
9. Nice Time
10. Ashes
Band #2: Sublime
Do I need any further explanation? http://bit.ly/gwjk2V
Setlist:
1. Garden Grove
2. 54-46 That’s My Number/Ball and Chain
3. Let’s Go Get Stoned
4. Greatest Hits
5. Same In the End
6. Scarlet Begonias
7. Get Ready
8. What Happened?
9. Santeria
10. Boss DJ
Band #3: Bob Marley & The Wailers
One good thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain!
Setlist:
1. Could You Be Loved
2. Punky Reggae Party
3. Satisfy My Soul
4. Get Up Stand Up
5. Roots, Rock, Reggae
6. Lively Up Yourself
7. Three Little Birds
8. No Woman, No Cry
9. I Shot the Sheriff
10. Redemption Song
11. Trenchtown Rock (Bob deserves an encore!)
Unlike my last dream concert, I highly doubt there’s a chance of this one possibly coming true, or at least 2/3’s for that matter. 
R.I.P. Bob and Brad.  You are missed, but thank you for all you did.  As for Pepper, be easy and stay high.  Can’t wait to see y’all this summer on the Warped Tour.
