In support of their ninth studio album titled Everyday Life, Everyday People (released 7/13/18 via their own Stoopid Records), San Diego reggae rock crew Slightly Stoopid recently closed out a string of USA shows dubbed the ‘School’s Out For Summer Tour.’
Brooklyn welcomed the return of Slightly Stoopid last Thursday (August 9th) at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk, marking the band’s third performance at said outdoor venue since its inception in 2016. As with previous years, the band, led by guitar / bass / vocalists Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, rocked out to a packed house, properly kicking off their set with “Schools Out” by Alice Cooper.
Slightly Stoopid would go on to perform songs “Don’t Stop,” “Don’t Care,” “Anywhere I Go,” “2 AM,” “Bandelero,” a cover of Tom Petty‘s “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” and additional tracks from their famed LPs Closer to the Sun, Chronchitis, Top of the World and more during their smoked out bash. West coast alt / dub rock acts Stick Figure (with tour dog in tow) and Pepper ignited vibes early in the evening, as thousands danced in the Brooklyn heat.
Next up for Slightly Stoopid, they’ll perform summer gigs in the Neatherlands, UK, and Spain before returning to California for appearances in Del Mar and Ontario (get full info).
