Steel Pulse comes from Birmingham, an industrial city on the other side of the pond that also spawned popular music ensembles like UB40, Electric Light Orchestra and metalcore maniacs Oceans Ate Alaska. Unlike the bands mentioned above, Steel Pulse performs a type of music known as roots reggae, a subgenre of the main form that first became popular in the US during the late '70s. Steel Pulse follows the lead of outfits like Bob Marley and the Wailers as well as Black Uhuru in its musical exploration of African and Afro-Carribbean culture and spirituality. In addition, the band jams heartily under the direction of founding member and lead vocalist David Hinds. His nickname is “Dread” just in case you want to know about the cred this outfit brings to a type of music that is still very popular with Americans—particularly white college students—after all these years. Steel Pulse performs at the Historic El Rey Theater on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 8pm. Santa Fe's Brotherhood Sound System and Burque's own Revíva open for this upbeat, age 13-and-over music fest, and just $30 gets you in. (August March)Historic El Rey TheaterSteel Pulse • reggae
