The Down and Dirty

Returning to Red Rocks for their third straight headlining set, the Dirty Heads’ mix of hip-hop and reggae has taken the five-piece band a long way since opening for Sublime with Rome at the same venue. While they may not be a household name yet, the new album SWIM TEAM is crushing the charts and the first single “Celebrate” off it has the sound of a band that’s both confident and mature.
Beyond the music, however, is a commitment to the environment. The band teamed up with KROQ in April to lead beach cleanups in southern California that brought out almost 1,400 volunteers. They’re doubling down and donating $1 for each ticket sold on their current tour to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit that has engaged in a new legal action or new lawsuit against the Trump administration about every eight days since the inauguration according to an NRDC statement.
For those looking for a side of social consciousness with their summer entertainment, you’d be hard pressed to find a better act. Opening acts for the June 26 show include Iration, The Movement, and Pacific Dub.
