KABAKA PYRAMID & THE BEBBLE ROCKERS LIVE!!
Music also provided by Dj Zelus & Dj Omatic
Kabaka Pyramid is a conscious revolutionary lyricist with a unique musical style; blending the power, energy and melody of Reggae with the lyricism of Hip hop. Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica this Bebble Rock Music artist uses his liquid and hypnotizing delivery to spread positive messages of spiritual evolution that forces you to listen.
The name “Kabaka” is Ugandan for “King” and the long lasting survival of the Pyramids of ancient Africa represent his desire for longevity in the music and deep connection to Kemetic roots; leaving messages for generations to come.
This Award winning artist has developed a solid global fan-base that connects deeply with the messages in his music, touring extensively over the past 5 years to the largest of Reggae stages around the world. Aided by his excellent “Bebble Rockers” band; he has brought his message and power to tens of thousands of people in North America, Europe, Central America and the Caribbean. Hitting stages such as “Reggae on the River” (US), Rebel Salute (JA), Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (US), “Rototom Sunsplash” (Spain), Musa (Portugal), SummerJam (Germany), Reggae Sumfest (JA), Reggae Sundance (NE), Reggae Sun Ska Festival (FRA), South by South West (US), BoomTown (UK) as well as headlining multiple 20+ multi-city club tours; Kabaka is well known for delivering an electrifying and entertaining live performance. He has just recently concluded the 30 show, United States “Stony Hill” tour with Damian Jr. Gong Marley to rave reviews.
Following the global success of his impactful hit single “Well Done” in 2015; Kabaka released his “Accurate” mixtape presented by music superpower Major Lazer and Walshy Fire to tremendous reception with the mixtape proving to be an instant classic amongst reggae/hiphop fans. In 2017 he topped the Global Reggae Charts with the anthem “Can’t Breathe” the first single off his soon to be released debut full length album “Contraband”. The project is being executive produced by Damian “Jr Gong” Marley and is a joint release with Bebble Rock Music and Ghetto Youths International.
In fact the Pyramid has released a powerful catalogue over the years including the critically acclaimed “Rebel Music EP” and the Billboard top 10 charting “Lead the Way EP”; singles such as “Never Gonna Be A Slave”, “No Capitalist”, “Mi Alright” with Chronixx, and “Free From Chains” as well as music videos for the popular “Warrior” featuring Protoje, “World Wide Love, “Liberal Opposer” and “High and Windy” with Sara Lugo; he has achieved regular rotation on local and international airwaves. Kabaka Pyramid is touted by many as a leader in the new wave of powerful reggae artists coming out of Jamaica.
Kabaka has achieved recognition both locally and overseas, placing #1 on the BILLBOARD Next Big Sound Charts and also featured by the popular music conglomerates, TheFader, MTV Iggy, Okayplayer, Reggaeville amongst many others in the media landscape. In 2013 he was awarded breakthrough artist of the year by the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association. He is also a three (3) time nominee for Song of the year 2013, 2014 and 2015 for the tracks “No Capitalist”, “Mi Alright” and “Well Done” respectively. The lyricist has in addition won the award for best reggae recording by Canada’s highly respected Juno Awards with Exco Levi.
With a mission to steer future generations towards harmony and unity Kabaka Pyramid is primed and focused on bringing a righteous and conscious way of thinking to the masses through Reggae Music.

Meg Duffy hasn’t stopped moving, working, or growing since she left her quiet childhood home in upstate New York. You can find her in the back of the van reading a book, quietly warming up backstage with some guitar workouts, or waiting tables at a neighborhood pizzeria. Though Meg didn’t pick up the instrument until she was seventeen years old, her intuitive, naturalistic musicality and commitment to the craft of guitar playing have made an in-demand collaborator and guitarist for countless indie acts (Kevin Morby, Mega Bog, Weyes Blood) and kept her between the road and the studio for almost three straight years. Like much of the richest art, Meg’s LP debut Wildy Idle (Humble Before the Void) (Woodsist 2017) is many things at once. The record is a collection of songs written amidst the constant motion of touring, recording, and working part-time jobs; recorded at home in North East LA between other commitments, around the sounds of roommates cooking breakfast, and dogs pattering through an old craftsman house. Layered with Duffy’s signature extended guitar techniques, poems read by friends, and musical contributions from contemporaries like Keven Lareau (Quilt), Avi Buffalo, Sheridan Riley, and others, the album combines striking visual storytelling and compelling melody with a deceptively light touch. Drawing on diverse influences ranging from novelist Iris Murdoch to Phil Elverum’s seminal work under his Microphones moniker, this album is more than the sum of its parts. Like a folded paper fortune teller, each listen reveals a new, hidden truth about living, working, and falling in and out of love buried in the quietly beating heart of the record. Dark, pulsing tracks like the intoxicating “Bad Boy” sit comfortably beside sunny strummers like “All The While” with its bouncing bassline and beguiling lyrics. The thread that runs through all these songs is Duffy’s voice, in turns languid and sweet, and always telling a story. Mixed and mastered by contemporary electronic music maestro M. Geddes Gengras, the result is an LP as hypnotic as Hand Habit’s impossibly immersive live set, and filled with the same engaging blend of wild improvisation and perfect restraint. Expansive, atmospheric arrangements punctuated with intricate melodic details. This record is indoor music at its finest: listen in the morning, in bed with your partner, in the kitchen while you make coffee, at night when you read on the porch.

Great Minds Panel Discussion By The Bolinas Museum
November 11 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
The Lights in the Sky Are Stars: Looking, Seeing, and Knowing in Art, Astrophysics and Photography
// Saturday, November 11 / 4-6 PM / FREE
/ Bolinas Community Center / $10 suggested donation //
Moderated by John Weber, Founding Director UC Santa Cruz Institute of the Arts and Sciences, Arts Division, with panelists: Tony Misch, Director of the Lick Observatory Historical Collections; Charles Lindsay, artist and NASA’s SETI Artist in Residence Founding Director; Michael Light, artist; Don Jolley, Bolinas Stinson School science teacher and artist; and Linda Connor, artist.
From before the dawn of recorded history, humans have looked up into the skies and wondered what is out there. Artists have depicted the heavens, and astronomers
have probed the celestial universe. This dialogue brings contemporary artists together with perspectives from astrophysics to consider the Bolinas Museum’s current exhibition and what the differing kinds of images and artifacts in it tell us about our desire to understand the universe. What does a drawing tell us that a photograph doesn’t? How is a photograph by an astronomer different from one by an artist? Join us as we probe the in night and learn what inspired these artists and scientists.

In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.
Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.
The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) , Thursday Nov 1 from 8am -10pm.
On Friday Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC will be open from 8am to 10pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome.

Film Screening of the Ragman’s Cave
A Short Film by Ole Schell – Community Center Benefit
Bolinas resident, Ole Schell, has made a short film about two boys going on an adventure in Bolinas in the 1980’s. The film features real Bolinas kids and first time actors, Logan Malvin, Marius Salone, Lana Glavis and Sadie Mann. It also features Temple, who some may recognize from Jerry’s play. This film is based on a full feature length script Ole wrote over the past year and half called Ragman’s Cave. The team shot the short film every day after school for two and a half weeks using the resources they had and the locations they all grew up in. “I was able to spend time with Logan and Marius and see the town again through their eyes. We have the same shortcuts, same trees and even the occasional grown up yelling at us to slow down on our motorcycles” says Ole.
Donations for a new projector, screen and sound system for the community center will be accepted but not expected. There will be drama, there will be laughter and there will be an epic 80’s police car and motorcycle chase. This short is a glimpse of a larger feature film they hope to make.
We will start with a meet and greet out over popcorn, snacks, beer and wine, followed by the film, a Q & A and then we can hang some more! It’s a short film so it won’t run late. Those who want to can stay after for a drink and revelry.
