.Be Our Guest: Iration


Hailing from Isla Vista by way of Hawaii, Iration quickly made a mark on the Southern California party scene, and in the last 10-plus years, has grown far beyond Santa Barbara to become a nationally touring act and regular at festivals, including Lollapalooza, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and Sunset Strip Music Festival. The band has a solid handle on reggae-rock grooves, head-nodding rhythms and a one-love vibe, and their performances tend to be full of lots of aloha—which we can all use a bit more of right now.

INFO: 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 13 and 14. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $27.50. 423-1338. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 9 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the Saturday show.
