The Expendables

Last time I caught The Expendables in town, they were supporting Slightly Stoopid on a Cauzin’ Vapors tour stop at Marymoor Park. Now, the tables are turned: members of Slightly Stoopid are backing their Santa Cruz reggae-rock labelmates as C-Money & The Players Inc. But what both outfits have locked down is a knack for grooving dub bass and catchy guitar riffs, and The Expendables haven’t stopped building on their genre-bending foundation with tight rhythms and a true California-grown surf-punk vibe. Aptly titled, their most recent studio record Prove It is indeed a testament toward their sonic maturity and also their evolution into uniquely multidimensional music makers. With John Brown’s Body.
