Passafire at Propaganda on March 30

Savannah, Georgia, sure isn't a particularly beachy place, but reggae knows no geographical bounds, especially among the college-age set. And school is indeed where this group formed in 2003, when its members were all students at the Savannah College of Art and Design. In ensuing years, though, visual art has mostly taken a back seat to music tours for this four-piece, as Passafire has carved a niche for itself by pretty much perpetually touring. Although the group occasionally delves into world- and folk-music flourishes with synths and even banjos, it mostly sticks to what it does best: no-nonsense roots reggae with soulful vocals.
