Check out this great track and vid from STRANGE TENANTS, the “Godfathers of Australian Ska.” The message is spot-on and direct, as is the driving 2-Tone style beat. Brilliant, relevant, fun, and by gawd, even a dog can skank to it! Two paws up. Click the link below for instant ska satisfaction:
San Jose’s MONKEY has been playing ska and reggae and with their food in the bay area and around the world for over 10,000 years. They are playing their super baddass 10,000th year anniversary gig this Friday night, January 31 at the Blank Club. OK I lied. It’s 18 years. But that’s still a long time. And they are a wonderful band so go see ’em and wish them a skappy birthday! Two paws up! W00f
NYC’s longest-skanking band, The Toasters, is doing a big ass tour and they will be stopping at this ska doggie’s own hometown of Berkeley, CA. Yes and opening the show will be Skank Bank, latest greatest heirs to the Gilman-y ska-punky Berkeley High School-y skank-o-sphere. And yes, the show is at 924 Gilman. South bay ska stalwarts MONKEY and Gilman skafficianados Jokes For Feelings, plus The Skunkadelics are also on this skawesome bill. I will be there, passing out ska-ggy biskits to all my Bitches.
