Ska Gig Alert: The Dance Bash with The English Beat (Providence, RI)

If you are in the New England area on Saturday, November 15th and have some extra scratch in your pocket, you might want to head to Providence, RI for The Dance Bash at The Foundry, a fundraiser to benefit Save the Bay (an environmental organization dedicated to "protect, restore, and explore Narragansett Bay and its watershed"). The featured performers at this benefit are The English Beat (really Dave Wakeling, who is big into environmental causes, particularly clean ocean waters), with the Cobra-Matics (rockabilly, featuring the guitarist from the Royal Crowns) opening. This is The English Beat's only gig on the East Coast this fall (except for one in Teaneck, NJ at Mexicali Live), so this is the time to catch them!

Here's the deal: it's $75 for an open bar, a dessert bar, and the show. Doors for this ticket level (The Dance Bash) are at 9:00 pm. So, for your hard-earned cash, you can catch two great bands; drink all you want; load up on sweets, and help keep the Narragansett Bay clean! Sounds like a bargain to me!
