23min of Ska Interviews : the Shifters

1. This episode is longer than 23 minutes
2. There is a lot of talking

The reason for that notice is that I’m talking to the Shifters, a great ska/rocksteady/reggae band out of D.C. and I wouldn’t want to cut them short or deny any of you listeners a thing they have to say or some of their music. It had to happen this way, and you’ll be glad I didn’t short change you. The Shifters are going on a short Southern California tour next week, so I want everyone to know about that too, and show up, and dance, and have a great time!

The Shifters Southern California Halloween Tour:
Oct. 30 at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA w/ Chris Murray
Oct. 31 at Boars Cross’n in Carsbad, CA
Nov. 1 at the Tin Can in San Diego, CA w/ 2000 Tons of TNT and Ottly Mercer
Nov. 2 at Resurrection Ride in Los Angeles, CA

Nov. 21 the Final Blue Beat DC show w/ Chris Murray, Sammy Kay and the Snails
