Purple Hatters Ball: DubConscious – Artist Not to Miss
Returning to Purple Hatter’s Ball at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park this month is the ever evolving, socially and philosophically conscious group DubConscious. They’ve been busy working on a new album with a new record company, Boom One Records, as well as another surprise release this summer and now is your chance to catch them live.
Coming out of the acclaimed Athens music scene, DubConscious has been a positive beacon of light as waves of other groups have come and gone. Since 2002, the dub reggae ensemble has been promoting the ideals of environmental and social awareness, unity and sustainability with their music. Their forward-thinking philosophy is exemplified through their songs and the atmosphere at each show follows suit. Organizations are encouraged to take part in the initiative to change people’s minds by setting up at each show and presenting new ideas. The band does their part by selling album downloads on biodegradable cards that can be planted to grow wildflowers after the code is used. The physical copies of albums are printed on recycled cardboard with soy-based ink. With a striking lyrical message in each song backed by an impressive musical prowess, you’re bound to pick up a copy after seeing this group.
The festival takes place May 10th-12th in Live Oak, FL with DubConcious slotted from 6pm-7:30pm that Saturday night. This event is a great place to see this group and since they continue to get invited back it’s obvious they don’t disappoint. Tickets are still available through PHB HERE.
