In what is probably the best deal entertainment-wise in the region this weekend, California-based band The Higgs will perform at the Alibi Public House in Truckee Friday.

What? Who are The Higgs?

The Higgs are a jam band that, in their own words, “blur musical boundaries and unify the different sounds of jam rock, prog, alt-rock, reggae and blues into an awesome musical fusion.”

Their description, in this case, is pretty spot on: listening to The Higgs is an experience. And while we would never advocate for recreational drug use … they’re pretty trippy, which stays true to their name, in a way.

The band is named after the Higgs-boson particle, famously nicknamed the “God Particle.”

Listening to their music is like going back in time and stepping into the future at the same time.

If you’re intrigued but not sure, or you’re wondering what the hell we’re talking about, head to and watch their performance at the OC Music Festival. You won’t be disappointed.

As the band’s bio explains: “With their tremendous stage presence showing how much they truly enjoy interacting with their audiences, it shows up in their sound, which is known for being tight and infectious.”

Aside from the band being freaking fantastic, you might be wondering: What makes this the best deal entertainment-wise?

Well, tickets are only $5 and the band is performing with Truckee-based Coburn Station, a phenomenal band that has been featured in esteemed publications including this one.

The show starts at 8:30 p.m. at Alibi Ale Works Truckee Public House, 10069 Bridge Street in Truckee. Purchase tickets at
