SKA 4 LYFE
January 12, 2014 § Leave a comment
Reel Big Fish is tonight at the Wilma! Or there’s Reverent Horton Heat and Nekromantix at the Top Hat. I have made my (ska) bed and will lie in it. Or skank in it, rather.
To that end, I direct you to Dan Brooks’ most excellent words on the matter of third wave ska:
“Ska is what would happen to punk rock if punks actually were rejected by society. It is insular, silly about stuff that should be serious, and serious about what is undeniably silly. It is the Scientology of music: a baffling cult that people keep signing up for and having a great time.” Go read the rest.
Party on, kids, and no matter what end you choose, I hope to see you for the inevitable afterparty at the Rose.
