127 contestants skanked their butts off to live ska music by The Uptones, Hectic, and The Street Vendors @ La Peña Friday nite. DJ Ox kept the dance hall bouncing for the contestants and the rest of the sweaty crowd between sets, and comedian Eric Cash MC’d & announced the winners. 2nd prize winners all took home a copy of The Uptones’ Skankin’ Foolz Unite! CD.
