RiceRokit Gig with The English Beat

It seems like it's time for another RiceRokit fix for the masses...

Kendo from RiceRokit was kind enough to forward the poster to the right for his band's upcoming show with The English Beat (at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA on February 27). If you are in the area--see the band!

An interesting bit of ska trivia to wow yer friends with: Tiki Thomas Fernandez at Screaming Tiki Graphix, who designed this poster, appears on RiceRokit's forthcoming second album (Pidgin English) playing the theremin (!) on a ska cover of Bauhaus' "Bela Lugosi's Dead." (I've heard it--the track is awesome!)*

[*Small correction from Kendo: Tiki Thomas (frontman for local SD ska combo 'Dr. Skavra') plays the theremin LIVE with RiceRokit, on the Bauhaus cover.

Kendo actually played the "electro-theremin" (of Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" fame), on the CD version of "Bela Lugosi."]

Lastly, below you'll find a few pictures from RiceRokit's performance at the recent 3 Floors of Ska show at the Knitting Factory in LA...








Bucket says buy the RiceRokit album already, dammit!
