California reggae rockers The Expendables are bringing their "Life's a Beach" tour to Des Moines East Village on Wednesday, March 13 for a show at Wooly's. (After a week of snow and freezing drizzle, a little surf rock is just what the meteorologist ordered to thaw out Central Iowa.) The Expendables will be joined on the Wooly's stage by openers Pacific Dub and Come Unity. Doors for the show will open at 7 p.m., and the music will start at 8 p.m. Tickets for the concert are $13 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Tickets may be purchased at the Wooly's box office or online through Ticketfly. This will be an all ages concert event.
The Expendables are a quartet from Santa Cruz, California that blend reggae, surf rock, ska, punk, and metal together to create their unique sound. The band got its start in 1997 and still features the original lineup. The Expendables have released six albums to date. Their latest was the 2012 acoustic release Gone Soft, which was quite a departure for the band. The Expendables have shared the stage with the likes of 311, Kottonmouth Kings, Slightly Stoopid, Less Than Jake, and G. Love & Special Sauce. They have also played on the Winter Blackout Tour and the Vans Warped Tour. Check out music from the band below.
