    So where are we gonna have the skank meet up? Left side, right side, DEAD center. I don't really like getting up too close to the stage because of crowds, but I may have to make an exception for this.

    specials were too good on main though...
    My girlfriend looks a little bit like Charlize Theron... and a lot like Dog the Bounty Hunter.

    As far a Ska goes I've seen the mighty mighty bosstones, skatalites, pietasters, specials, streetlight manifesto, english beat, aquabats, slackers, westbound train, deals gone bad, toasters, mustard plug, aggrolites, reel big fish..

    and I'm planning on Madness being the best ska band I've ever seen.

    This will be the first SKA band I get to see live, glad to hear that they will bring it.

    I really hope this happens!

    An old ska band I saw back in the day was Skanking Pickle. I also say Mary's Danish, who were quasi-ska!

    The English Beat in their prime (~1981) were the best ska band anyone has ever seen.

    I'm afraid of disappointment...one of the first shows I went to as a kid was Madness opening for Bowie in 1983.

    ^Thanks for those videos!
    I just got waaaaayyy more excited for Coachella. Madness is easily one of the most professional bands performing at the fest. These aren't some amateur indie pop hype sensations, these are amazing, professional, experienced musicians. You have to be stupid to miss this set.

    I confess that I wish I could have taken my crush Jeannette to see the English Beat back then. I would look in the mirror in the bathroom and then twist and crawl until the end of the party but after all that she would tell me to save it for later.

    Ever get a chance to see Fishbone back in the late 80's early 90's? Although I guess they might not be seen as a ska band technically, as their influences were pretty much all over the place.
    Also, I just remembered the Untouchables was another band that always put on a fun show.

    I saw Fishbone in about 92. NOFX opened for them.

    I feel like I've told this story a million times on here, but it's one of my favorite concert stories ever so I will tell it again.

    I was in the pit during NOFX and being a somewhat petite 20 year old I got knocked over and was being trampled. From out of nowhere this giant black hand grabbed me like a rag doll and pulled me up and out. I looked up to see my hero slowly disappearing back in to the pit as he blew me a kiss. It was FUCKING Vernon Reid.

    One of only 2 places I've every been 86d out of.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
