Rebelution

Spotlight show • Nothing says a pre-St. Patrick's Day celebration more than a reggae band, and The Depot will host a night of reggae when Santa Barbara-based Rebelution's Peace of Mind Tour hits the venue with special guests The Green and Pep Love. "We love the color green in Rebelution," said the band's singer and guitarist Eric Rachmany. (If you need to ask why, you don't know the genre very well.) The touring machine finally released "Peace of Mind" earlier this year, after nearly three years of waiting by the rapidly growing fanbase. The album's release was postponed, Rachmany said, because the pop-reggae band was touring so much it didn't have time to record. But the work paid off: The album debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard album chart, even after the band gave away half of the album free on its website for six weeks before its release. To reward fans for their patience, Rebelution made available a version that included the album's songs performed acoustically, as well as the third album, consisting of dub renditions (instrumental remixes done by Easy Star's Michael Goldwasser, famed for other dub remixes such as Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band and Radiodread). "We gave fans 36 tracks to listen to," Rachmany said.

Cappadonna

Spotlight show • Even though rapper Cappadonna is barely off a winter tour with Wu-Tang Clan comrade Ghostface Killah, he's back on the road with King Magnetic and Block McCloud of Army of the Pharaohs. Cappadonna is touring to promote his latest solo album, "The Pilgrimage." At one point, the album was being recorded in tandem with "The Pillage 2," referencing his 1998 breakthrough album "The Pillage." That's not to say he didn't put his heart into "The Pilgrimage." "I was really gorilla pimpin' " on the record, he said. The message of "The Pilgrimage," Cappadonna said, is how "the journey is long, but it will make you stronger." The Staten Island-based hip-hop artist even brought up his latest hero, Jeremy Lin of his hometown team, the New York Knicks. "That's how they found out about Lin," he said. "They put him in the game. I'm staying in the game. Look at the pilgrimage that Lin took."
