Long Live Ska, the highly entertaining/influential/bastardized forefather to reggae music. Don’t dig Ska? Lemme guess… You were probably a fan back in high school, when you were trying to fit in by trying to not fit in, and lost your enthusiasm for the music as soon as you went to college, where you discovered Sub-Pop and flip night. It happens all the time, and that’s fine. But for the rest of us, those who haven’t lost a taste for upbeats anyways, we’re always excited when The Toasters come to town!
The lovely and talented Pam Janutolo, along with ska record pressing maniac Matt Flood from Asbestos Records, made a trip to Hartford last weekend to catch a 4-way throw down at Comcast Center featuring Fear Nuttin Band, Less Than Jake, Pepper, and Sublime with Rome.
While we couldn’t get full access to all the groups due to time constraints, we were able to get some shots of FNB and LTJ, and it looked like a great time! If only Canada wasn’t so far away, i’d have been there myself.
Check out shots of FNB and LTJ below, and give them some love by clicking the links to their pages.
