The First Duff Guide to Ska Show of the Year: The Rudie Crew All-Stars, Detroit's 1592, and Skarroñeros!

Hey, kids, we're putting on shows again!

The Duff Guide to Ska is producing it's first ska show of the year in June at one of our favorite places in New York: Otto's Shrunken Head tiki bar in Manhattan's still sort-of infamous Alphabet City.

All of the details are to the right, but we'd like you to note that this is going to be a pretty special night, with appearances by The Rudie Crew All-Stars, who are honoring their fallen comrade Roy Radics by keeping on making the music that he loved with all of his heart and soul; the fantastic Detroit rocksteady group 1592, who are making a stop in the Big Apple during their summer tour; and one of our favorite groups from the NYC Latino ska scene, the left-wing musical and political activists Skarroñeros! (Also on hand will be DJ Ryan Midnight, who will be selecting ska music for your pleasure.)

There's no cover for the night, but I ask that you please bring some extra cash (in addition to whatever you need for the bar--remember to tip the barkeep well!) for when we pass the hat for each band--to show your appreciation for each band's music and work!

A few other Duff Guide to Ska shows will be forthcoming later this year. Stay tuned for details!
