The Toasters at the Highline Ballroom in NYC this Sunday

Here's a nice preview for The Toasters gig at the Highline Ballroom this Sunday (February 22) in The New Yorker, of all places:
Though the local group the Toasters never scored any major hits, they were a major influence on the American ska scene during the eighties, inspiring later successful acts like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and No Doubt. The brainchild of the Brit expat vocalist Rob (Bucket) Hingley, the Toasters imbued their hiccupy Two Tone-inspired music with a distinctive New York sensibility. The ska-revival trend has long since moved on, but Hingley—he’s the band’s only remaining original member—and the Toasters still attract a loyal following.
This all-ages show, billed as "Ska Splash," starts at 6:30 pm and also features the NY Ska Jazz Ensemble, the Hub City Stompers, Westbound Train, and Across the Aisle.

I just gotta say that The Toasters' logo-created by hand in the pre-home computer age-is one of the best band logos out there...
