Due to severe weather conditions, The Aggrolites have been forced to cancel their upcoming Canadian performances. You can read a brief message from the band explaining the situation below.
The Aggrolites Cancellation DetailsWe are stuck in terrible weather in the mid west. Sorry. The shows are still on. Please go check out The Expos and Murcury. We'll post a blog tonight to tell some crazy stories of the road along with pics. When our VAN & TRAILER spun out on an icy freeway and did a 360 into the median, we knew this was going to be a rough trip. We'll make it to Boston, though.

You can read an article on The Aggrolites, in which the band's acclaimed frontman, Jesse Wagner, provides his own thought-provoking insight on the group's traditional approach to reggae music, below.
The Aggrolites ArticleWhite people steal. In popular music, thatís just the way. Whether itís Elvis, Eric (Clapton) or Eminem, history is littered with crackers who made a lot of money ripping off some forgotten black dude.

Like rap was in the í80s, reggae has always been fairly sacred ground. But white musicians have been getting into the act lately, playing out some musical version of Manifest Destiny. There were anomalies along the way (remember Snow?), but what started with the...

LA Weekly recently sat down with The Aggrolites' guitarist Brian Dixon to discuss the band's nostalgic take on Jamaican reggae. You can find the interview republished in it's entirety below.

Soulful sandpaper vocals, lubricated grooves, primitive recordings ó itís an aural approximation of skaís Platonic, early state of grace. Think of Otis Redding fronting the Meters.
