Reggae and Hilarity
The Rum Punch Mafia, a Bob Marley tribute band, will bring a reggae dance party to Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theater on Saturday at 8 p.m.
 
Made up of local friends and musicians, the Southampton-based band draws from roots, rock, and reggae, with an emphasis on roots reggae. Their Bay Street performance will celebrate the life of the singer and composer, performing such hit songs as "One Love," "Exodus," and "Stir It Up."
 
Tickets are $37 in advance, $47 the day of the show.
 
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. While the tour ended in 2019, the Long Island-based Warp Tour Band is alive and rocking at the Suffolk on Saturday at 8 p.m. The band will perform music by Taking Back Sunday, Blink-182, Green Day, My Chemical Romance, and many others.

Tickets are $25 to $35.
