The Jolly Boys On My Radio--Plus NYC Ska Shows This Weekend!

If you're kicking around Manhattan this Friday, February 25, 2011, you could find worse ways to spend an hour than seeing The Jolly Boys live on the radio (plus, for fans of New Wave, Thomas Dolby also will be on hand to perform new material!). After their gig at the Hiro Ballroom the night before, The Jolly Boys will be on WNYC's "Soundcheck Live," which is broadcast from the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space (44 Charlton Street at Varick). Tickets are $10 (and can be purchased here)--the show starts at 2:00 pm and lasts for an hour. (Support Public Radio, y'all!) If you can't make it to the Greene Space, listen to it live over the airwaves or via WNYC's website...

(On a related note, to read The Duff Guide to Ska interview with The Jolly Boys' collaborator and ex-Skavoovie Dan Neely, click here.)

Here is a video of The Jolly Boys covering Iggy Pop's "The Passenger":

Also on tap this weekend is the Dirty Reggae Party 8 on Friday night (2/25/11) at The Lake in Bushwick (with Kofre, The Hard Times, Jah Love and the Valentinians, and The Rudie Crew!). All the details can be found here.

Then on Saturday night (2/26/11), catch Across the Aisle is playing The Trash Bar in Williamburg. Doors are at 8:00 pm, $10 gets you in, and there is an open bar from 8-9pm (for Lyzfest II/Lyz's birthday party)!
