Chadwick Stokes and The Pintos

With opener Brooke Annibale

Chadwick Stokes’ music is hard to categorize, and spans indie folk, roots rock, reggae fusion, and rap rock. Since forming his first band with two college friends in 1996, Stokes has paved a path of independence, advocacy and social consciousness that's impacted every aspect of his artistic life. In addition to fronting the bands State Radio and Dispatch, Stokes is also a co-founder of Calling All Crows, a non-profit dedicated to bringing bands and fans together to create change through hands-on service and activism.

Politics and social issues have heavily influenced his work as a solo artist and with State Radio. Stokes’ passion for these topics also exists within some of Dispatch’s music, such as protest songs “Dear Congress” and “Letter to Lady J”, both songs off new release "Location 13." This collection of songs is the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album "America, Location 12." 

According to Stokes, "I’ve had a batch of tunes for a while that we’ve been playing but I wanted to get in another live run (with The Pintos) to make sure the songs are ready to record. Joining me are my mates JR (drums), brother Willy (banjo), and Tommy (bass). We’ll be trying out the songs in different forms to see what works. Songs like “Hit the Bell With Your Elbow”, “Joan of Arc" and “Second Favorite Living Drummer”. We’ve also messed around with Dispatch and SR tunes and at least 3 or 4 songs from Simmerkane II."

Stokes has toured around the country this past summer with Dispatch, accompanied by Nahko and Medicine for the People, with Calling All Crows volunteer projects on every stop of the tour including the Here For The Music campaign, combating sexual harassment in the music industry.

A Here For The Music training session will take place at the Strand just prior to Doors time (from about 5:45 - 6:45pm), and is open to anyone who wants to learn different ways of dealing with sexual harassment (whether you experience it yourself or observe something happening).

Contemporary folk singer-songwriter Brooke Annibale released her first full-length album at age 17. In her most recent release, Hold to the Light, "songs flow into one another, painting a sonic portrait that is catchy as it is thoughtful. Here Annibale transcends the labels of folk, indie rock and pop to make music that is entirely of her own creation. There is euphoria, elation, sadness, and reflection all layered throughout, and it hardly feels like a stretch to imagine Annibale enchanting an audience at Coachella with the poppier tunes on the album, which bring to mind a more intellectual version of Haim."
