3rd Wave Ska Preservation Society Reissue Project Round 2

From the dudes at Asbestos Records and Underground Communique Records who brought us the fantastic Ska is Dead 7" series (you can subscribe Volume 2 now) and the first batch of vinyl reissues of popular (for the ska scene, that is), but long out-of-print albums from the ska boom of the 1990s (The Pilfers, The Pietasters, Suburban Legends, and Edna's Goldfish) comes The 3rd Wave Ska Preservation Society Reissue Project Round 2. This Kickstarter project hopes to press new, expanded color vinyl reissues of The Toasters' Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down, The Stubborn All-Stars' Back with a New Batch, The Slackers' International War Criminal, and the Bruce Lee Band's Bruce Lee Band.

Interested parties can make a pledge toward a particular release for about $20-25 or go for all four records for $70 (and there are, of course, additional perks at higher levels).

For this project to go forward, they need to raise $15,000 by September 7, 2012 (and as of this date, they are a little over half way there, which is great, since I've made a pledge myself and want to get my mitts on some of these records!).

Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, 2014 Apple Stomp 2 Was CANCELLED!

Apple Stomp 2 The So-called NYC Ska Fest was Cancelled Due to Low Ticket sells and the Very Successful NYC SKA Boycott Against Live Nation!

But Sean McDonald of crooked Live Nation claims Matt Flood of Apple Stomp was Delusional and is not up to putting on Ska Shows at Irving plaza.
