Every time you think ska is dead, another revival tour rolls into town, much to your delight or disappointment, depending on your affinity for peppy horn sections and incomprehensible vocals. The Voodoo Glow Skulls, who headline the Summer of Ska Tour today, will no doubt have skankers in a frenzy with their blend of third-wave ska and Latin influences, which may remind local scenesters of our own Los Skarnales (hey, why aren't they on the bill?). Drag out your pin-striped pants and wingtips, because this is the most rude-boy action you'll get until the inevitable Ska Isn't Quite Dead Yet Tour comes to town. Summer of Ska also features Big D and the Kids Table, Suburban Legends, Westbound Train, the Quarentines and the Big Takeover Sound System.
Thu., Aug. 17, 6 p.m.
