JamBase Review: The Aggrolites Unleashed Tour with Peelander-Z @ Slim's in San Francisco

Every song the band played was a hit with the audience, but the ones that had interludes for audience sing-alongs grew the energy and camaraderie in the room the greatest. During “Someday” and a cover of The Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” lead singer Jesse Wagner had the audience pushing up against the stage and each other as they belted out lyrics memorized long ago. The Aggrolites themselves were really good at engaging the crowd with their body language and energetic stage presence, but simply the music itself was extremely captivating. One look at the audience proved that it was impossible to resist responding physically to the dirty reggae beats. The band has obviously realized that their live show is something special, as they have just released a live album, Unleashed Live Vol. 1, which hopefully captures some of the magic so we all can relive Aggrolites shows in our everyday lives.
