Beats Antique Explains How Musicians Use Topicals to Survive Touring

(Courtesy Beats Antique)

Ask any musician—touring sucks. You don’t get enough sleep, you eat terribly, and occupational injuries threaten body and mind.

Musicians often self-medicate with herb gifted from fans. But thanks to legalization — precise topicals and tinctures augment this mystery grass.

Over the course of a decade and ten full-length albums, the Bay Area trio Beats Antique have honed their blend of pop, electro funk and wide-ranging global influences into a singular stew of party-starting exuberance. Traveling the world over and over again—David Satori and “Sidecar Tommy” Cappel have learned a few things.

Backstage before their tour-closing show at Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, the band sat down with The Hash to talk herbs that heal—including Fairwinds’ Deep Sleep Tincture and Green Earth Medicinals’ Muscle Spray.
