Yet More NYC Summer Ska Gigs!

Jake, the guitarist from Across the Aisle dropped me a line about this show they're playing on Monday, June 15th along with The Duppies (traditional ska band now on tour of the Northeast from Florida), King Django (ska/reggae master), The Forthrights (NYC trad ska), and Royal City Riot (a trad ska-soul band from Long Island). Six clams gets you in the door, and there is all the PBR you can chug from 8:00-9:00 pm (provided you are of age). The Trash Bar is in Williamsburg, at 256 Grand, betweeen Roebling and Driggs.

I also want to remind everyone of The Bluebeats' FREE gig this Saturday night at 10:00 pm sharp at Shrine aka Black United Fun Plaza (2271 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, aka 7th Avenue, between 133rd and 134th). I'm hoping to sneak out of a party I'm invited to in order to catch them! (FYI, The Duppies are playing here the night before.)

Here are several more chances to catch The Bluebeats in action this summer...

Friday, June 19 @ 10:00 pm: Two Boots, 514 2nd Street (7th and 8th Avenues), Park Slope, Brooklyn

Friday, July 17: Beau's Bar in Greenlaw, NY

Friday, July 24: Knitting Factory, 74 Leonard Street, Manhattan

Lastly, while I'm not a big RBF fan, they are touring this summer with Dave Wakeling's English Beat and will be in NYC at the Nokia Theatre on July 9 (other US dates may be found here--of note, Hepcat will be performing at their Milwaukee gig on July 5).
