Ska is dead. Is it?



The Pilfers are playing a reunion show!!! Nov 4th @ The Knitting Factory Doors @ 6pm $10 in advance $15 @ the door. Tickets don't appear to be up on the website, but I will keep everyone informed. Click here to listen to Why by The Pilfers.


Unfortunately, on Sunday July 17, Laurel Aiken passed away. Aitken was known as the "Godfather of Ska" and his music has influenced a world of people. He was one of my heroes growing up and he will truly be missed. If you have never heard the man, he is like the Temptations of ska. Just truly sexy, honest, sensual music.


While on the topic, legendary ska band, The Skatalites, have a few dates confirmed. Sadly, it looks as only one of the original members is in the band, but regardless, the shows should be amazing.
