Smart bets: DubConscious

Despite his recent death, bassist and vocalist Carl Lindberg remains listed as a current member on Athens, Ga.-based outfit DubConscious’ Facebook page — perhaps because the musician still has a significant impact on his fellow artists’ lives and creative expression. In fact, celebrating Lindberg’s life is the sole inspiration for two reunion performances — one in the band’s hometown and another in Asheville. In addition to bringing together friends and family members as musical guests, the show will include all original members of DubConscious, including lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Adrian Zelski, who hosts the show at his local concert venue. The Ooga Booga Shooga Giving Thanks Family Reunion Shows mini-tour stops at New Mountain Saturday, Nov. 28, at 8 p.m., with Piper Street Sound and Free Radio opening, and Futexture wrapping up the night with an electronic set. $10-$15. Proceeds support the Carl Lindberg Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Carl Lindberg Legacy Fund. Photo by Keith Berson
