Rock in Riverhead
What happens when you mix Talking Heads classics with roots, reggae, and ska? The answer can be found at the Suffolk Theater in Riverhead on Friday at 8 p.m., when Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads will take the stage.

Mystic Bowie performed for almost 20 years as a singer with the Tom Tom Club, along with Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, founding members of Talking Heads. Talking Dreads evolved out of his time with that band.

Tickets are $35 to $45.

A year after the Warped Tour launched in 1995, Vans, the shoe and apparel company, became a sponsor of what became the largest traveling music festival in the United States.

Tickets are $25 to $35.
