More than just the pulsating beat, there's just something about reggae music that makes you feel good.  It transports you to a place where ice doesn't cement your door shut and the crystal blue waters are not bursting out of your house's pipes. Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, the reggae-rock group The Movement was formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans. Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their alternative reggae debut album, On Your Feet. Since then, the band has worked with Philadelphia-based producer Chris DiBeneditto, gone through the standard line-up changes, included adding scratch master DJ Alific to the mix. The Movement brings its watery-dub guitar, bouncy-swaying beats, airy keys and verses delivered in sing-song rhymes to Jazzbones on a cold, Sunday night.

THE MOVEMENT, w/Publish The Quest, Positive Rising, 8 p.m., Jazzbones, 2803 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, $10, 253.396.9169
