What is Ska Massive?

In a move to help better promote what is going down on the ska scene, Dave Kirchgessner (Mustard Plug, Ska Is Dead) is spearheading a new Facebook page called Ska Massive, which will include ska-related news and developments posted by the folks behind Jump Up Records, Stomp Records, Stubborn Records, Megalith Records, The Ska Parade, and Musical Occupation.

In a synergistic move, Dave has re-branded the annual New Jersey-based "Skanksgiving" fest. It will now be called "Ska Massive" 2010 and take place on Saturday, December 4 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. Bands performing include Catch 22, The Pietasters, Mustard Plug, Deal's Gone Bad, The Forthrights, and Hub City Stompers.

No doubt you've heard that Ska Is Dead, Asbestos Records, and Underground Communique Records are releasing a series of "Ska is Dead" split 7" vinyl singles ("new music on a dead format"!) featuring bands like The Beatdown, Reel Big Fish, Mustard Plug, Big D & the Kids Table, Bomb the Music Industry!, The Slackers, and Sonic Boom Six. This is a subscription-only deal--you pay $36 and they ship you six singles in total: two each in three installments. To order, go here.
