The Dirty Heads
A few weekends ago, on September 28, 2012, I attended The Dirty Heads (TDH) concert. The concert took place at Senator Theater. The doors opened at 7:30 PM and the concert started at 8:30 PM. The Dirty Heads has a full band. This means that they had a percussionist (Jon Olazabal), a drummer (Matt Ochoa), a bassist (David Foral), a vocalist/guitarist (Dustin “Duddy B”) and a singer/song writer (Jared “Dirty J” Watson). The style of music that they play is reggae with a mix of hip hop, ska punk, and So Cal style. They were the main event but Pyrex and Ease Up also performed during the concert.

It describes the feeling where you think you are in over your head and have too many things to do and you really need some time to yourself. It’s about taking a moment to extract yourself from the bustle of life and finding some space for your “me time”. I think it is a great song to listen to when you are overwhelmed and need help relaxing. This song also is very slow and upbeat. Although it talks about being stressed out, the melody is soothing and personally, helps me unwind. I would classify this as a relaxing song because the slow tempo and conjunct melody help to soothe and relax me whenever I feel spread too thin.
3. Lay Me Down: This song can have several different meanings to different people. Personally, I see it as a love song. It’s about two people falling in love and just wanting to be together. The protagonist, the sheriff, is trying to keep them apart but all they want to do is be together. One of my favorite parts of the song is when it says “They’d rather die together then be stuck up in a cell.” Eventually, the couple get tired of running and decided to just lie down together. This to me emphasizes the point that they don’t care what they go through, as long as they go through it together. “I feel like we can stay here, I feel our time has come”, to me, this means they are tired of running and are stopping to just enjoying being with each other. This song has a quicker tempo than most TDH songs but it still has the soothing melody and calming lyrics that I have learned to expect from this band. The only thing I don’t like about this song is that I feel it leaves the listener with questions, did the couple get away? Did the sheriff and his posse get them? However, on the flip side, I do enjoy the fact that the audience is left guessing because it lets them create their own ending to the song, whether it is happy or sad, it is up to the listener to decide.
4. Dance All Night: Just like all TDH songs, this song is open to interpretation. To me, this is all about finding your place in the world and coming to terms with it. It is also about choosing to see the light rather than the darkness in life. I love that even though it might speak of things that are scary or hard to think about, you can push through it. A line that really captures that for me is, “Act like there’s one last day… make it one more round…” To me, this means it may be your last day but that doesn’t mean you have to give up, just keep going and dance all night. ...
