San Diego-based dub rockers Slightly Stoopid celebrated their fourth annual Closer To The Sun destination event at the New Sapphire Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico earlier this month. Offering four nights of music on the beach, a poolside stage perfect for afternoon sets, and a palapa for late night shows, there’s nothing quite like Closer to the Sun! On top of three shows from Slightly Stoopid, fans were delighted to two shows each from SOJA, Stick Figure, J Boog, Fortunate Youth, and The Expanders. With special guests G. Love, Chali 2na, Don Carlos, and Rashawn Ross on deck, the experience fulfilled the ultimate musical paradise. There’s truly nothing like the experience of being surrounded by awesome new friends of the Closer to the Sun community, digging your toes in the sand with a drink in your hand–all while watching your favorite musicians perform.
