Apple Stomp "Ska Brunch," Saturday, June 1st from 1-4pm!
In conjunction with the upcoming two-day Apple Stomp ska festival at Irving Plaza on May 31 and June 1, Electric Avenue (run by Marc Wasserman of Marco on the Bass/Bigger Thomas and yours truly, The Duff Guide to Ska) is holding the Apple Stomp "Ska Brunch" on the afternoon of the second day of the festival.
The Apple Stomp "Ska Brunch" will take place on Saturday, June 1 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (before that night's Apple Stomp show with The Slackers, Spring Heeled Jack, MU330, Mephiskapheles, The Pietasters, The Scofflaws, Westbound Train, Thumper, and Bigger Thomas) and features Rude Boy George doing their cool ska covers of New Wave classics (check out several RBG videos on The Duff Guide to Ska YouTube channel) and Selecter Steve spinning a mix of vintage ska, rocksteady, reggae, and New Wave.
You can find Electric Avenue in the back room at Characters NYC (243 West 54th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue)--a short subway ride away from Union Square and Irving Plaza. The Apple Stomp Brunch is an all-ages event and the door is a mere $5.00 (all of which goes to the band).
We hope to see you there!
