June 9: Burning Spear at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds


Yeah, so Harmony’s cancelled this year. Without sounding like I’ve been going since way back when, I thought it was getting a little watered down anyway: the festivities were shifting toward smuggled 40s and away from Hula Hoops, you know? While Harmony Festival organizers figure out what to do next year, the Sonoma County Fairgrounds won’t sit idly by this weekend. Behold Burning Spear, returning to Sonoma County after many years to satisfy those summer reggae cravings at the Higher Vision Festival. Experience this rastafari icon playing with Tinariwen (profiled in last week’s Bohemian) on Saturday, June 9, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. 11am–10pm. $32–$47. 707.322.3595.
