23min of Ska : Up into the Great Night

23ska-orangeplaidIt is all about having great nights lately! Last weekend I drove about a hour to go see a great band play (the Shifters in case you were wondering) and it was a blast to finally meet them in person and see them play. Just the other night I went out with my wife for our 2nd anniversary and (as expected) it was great as well. All day long we all slave away at our day job just waiting to get to the night, which offers freedom and fun if we aren’t too wiped out to take advantage of them. I implore you to fight that tired and weary state and get out there and enjoy some epic nights!
