Ska Crowd Funding: Sammy Kay, Urban Pirate Booty Split 7" Series!

Here are two crowd funding ska projects that are definitely worth supporting with your hard-earned cash (and I'm proud to say that I'm personally backing both of these projects, since I'm always on the hunt for new ska vinyl!).

Sammy Kay and The East Los 3's Love Letters CD/LP 

Hot on the heels of Sammy Kay's debut EP (read The Duff Guide to Ska review here), comes this project to fund his new 15-track album of bluesy, soulful, rocksteady and ska cuts titled Love Letters. Levels of support range from $8 for digital copies of Love Letters and his recently released EP, to $12 for the CD or $15 for black wax, to $30 for both CD and colored vinyl of the album (plus stickers and pins), and higher. Pledge your support here.

Right now, about $2,500 of the $3,200 goal has been raised, with 24 more days to go.

Urban Pirate Booty Split 7" Series, Volumes 1-5

Urban Pirate Records is hoping to put out a series of split singles from some of the finest ska and early reggae artists playing out right now on the US scene.  What's cool is that you can order singles a la carte (for $7 each) or go for the whole enchilada ($30 for all five singles); higher amounts score you test pressings and other goodies. Pledge your support here.

Volume 1: Crazy Baldhead/Sammy Kay
Volume 2: Dave Hillyard and the Rocksteady 7/Green Room Rockers
Volume 3: Bad Cards "Cap Fit" b/w Reggay Lords "Give It Me My Way" (gold vinyl)
Volume 4: Jesse Wagner "Eye of the Storm" b/w Vic Ruggiero "I Know a Girl" (gold vinyl)
Volume 5: King Django/The Snails

To date, the Urban Pirate Booty Split single series has raised almost exactly half of the $5k needed to fund this project, with 25 more days to go.

Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, 2014 Apple Stomp 2 Was CANCELLED!

Apple Stomp 2 The So-called NYC Ska Fest was Cancelled Due to Low Ticket sells and the Very Successful NYC SKA Boycott Against Live Nation!

But Sean McDonald of crooked Live Nation claims Matt Flood of Apple Stomp was Delusional and is not up to putting on Ska Shows at Irving plaza.

After very Low ticket sells and For Booking some Shady Fence Walker band's Like Hub City Stomper's that Lead to a Boycott of the Apple Stomp Shows Which is Now Banned. - OUCH!
