23min of Ska : the Lady in the Lake

23skaaxeHey everyone one! What’s up? I’ve just finished the first of a three-night Slackers concert. I’m tired as heck, but man, still so excited for tonight and tomorrow! This is a laid back episode highlighting not only the Slackers, but the other bands that will be playing (or most likely will be in attendance at least) with them for their stand up at the Troubadour. Not sure how I’m supposed to make it through work on Friday, and my wife already has plans to let me sleep in in Saturday, because she knows that 3 days of work and ska is going to wipe me the heck out. Sorry, I don’t usually like to brag, but I’m super excited about these shows!

00:00 – the Slackers – Knowing (the Question ’98)
02:45 – Jackie Mendez – Nice Like Rice (Introducing… ’13)
05:44 – the Delirians – Love Sweet Love (Get Up ’14)
09:34 – thee Hurricanes – Megafone (Angel City Record : a New Dimension in Sound comp ’13)
12:37 – Viernes 13 – Slow and Low (Thirteen Rules ’15)
