Slightly Stoopid will bring its Southern Californian mix of punk, reggae and pop/rock to Morgantown Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Metropolitan theatre.
The band has toured regularly since the two front men, Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, were discovered by Sublime’s Bradley Nowell in 1996 when the group was still in high school.
Nowell quickly signed the duo front men to his label, Skunk Records. They eventually created their own record label, Stoopid Records, and added drummer Ryan "RyMo" Moran and percussionist/vocalist Oguer "OG" Ocon, as well as C-Money (trumpet, keyboard) and Dela (saxophone).
Slightly Stoopid has made its mark in the punk rock world by weaving together various influences and impressing audiences with improvisation and crowd interaction. Because of its unique blend of musical genres, Slightly Stoopid has been able tour with various artists, including The Marley Brothers, Blink-182, G. Love and Special Sauce, Pennywise and N.E.R.D.
The band is currently touring in support of its latest album "Top of the World," which went on sale Aug.14.
