Devendra Banhart was so right when he said ska was going to come back.

Dude, Devil's Night Out and More Noise are fucking great records. I started seeing them in 89 and though I wince at their later stuff, back in the day their show were the funnest to go to anywhere.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 10:36 AM

Yeah, they are like a religion: Paganism.

10:29 you listen to people who take themselves way too seriously so much, I don't even know what to say.

Posted by michaelways | July 2, 2010 10:37 AM

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 10:42 AM

I concur. Back in the day their shows were alot of fun. At my age, I'm not too sure.

For the record, The Bosstones were around way before the "ska movement" was in fashion, unlike bands that followed. They also sound as good (if not better) than they did back in 94.

I can't wait to miss this one.

No Doubt is the best ska band ever.

This guy's voice live sounds like he has bronchitis.

Bands like to play music and make money. What's the problem?

That's a Hell of Hat you're wearing!

yea, they were a great live band, never much cared for their records, but they always put on a fun show! met them once too, super nice guys.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 10:51 AM

More like the MEHty MEHty Bosstones...amiright?

I kid...kinda...fun music back in the day, but they just don't seem relevant in 2010...

Posted by Scott | July 2, 2010 11:00 AM

Bands don't have to be relevant to still enjoy them. I am not always looking for the next Dan Deacon ;)

Amen.

i don't think this will be too good, That's Just The Impression That I Get!

Their NYC shows back in the '90s were so much fun. Even at big venues such as Roseland, they made the whole place dance and mosh.

Don't Know How to Party and Question the Answers are great records. After that, not so much. Who is in the lineup? I guess I could look that up myself.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 11:23 AM

It's everyone except Nate Albert and Dennis Brokenborough. Nate is missed.

Speaking of Dan Deacon, go check out his checkered past: www.channel59.tripod.com.

damn it. was really hoping Nate would be there.

i posted a sarcastic anonymous comment before, but am considering going so i can dust off my docs and drink some hurricane.

The best things about the 90's:
1. The skateboard slacker asthetic
2. Cigerettes $6.25 a pack
3. The abundance of ketamine
4. Williamsburg was hip
5. Lack of social networking
6. Hummus was still a niche market
7. The beastie boys
8. Free shows at thomkins square park

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 1:40 PM

1:40 in Jersey Cigs were $3.50 a pack in the 90's!

Are strange as it sounds, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones surved as my gateway to extreme metal in high school in the early 90's.

They used to only play their stuff on WSOU way back when in between the Morbid Angels, Napalm Deaths, etc. Really odd when you look back at it.

Some (lots) of their music didn't age so well, but they were always a great show to see live. One my most memoriable shows of my youth with them with openers Sick of It All at Roseland.

Peyton Manning at 0:47 of the Don't Know How To Party clip.

I remember hearing MMB on WDRE. I miss alt-rock radio.

ska blows!

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 3:47 PM

that cameo in clueless didn't hurt either

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 4:17 PM

damn there are some pretentious people up in here!

Sure most of us have broadened our musical horizons since the Bosstones' heyday, but so what? I bet anyone who went to this show would get hammered, dance their ass off, and have a great time.

Just wait a few more years until Ska is ironically cool and all these asshats will jump on board

Posted by mike | July 2, 2010 9:13 PM

Just what will the asshats do next there??
Spend 10.50 on a platter of fire roasted hummus.


In the 90's hummus was free with an order of bread.

Wow I am excited for this

Does anyone have an extra ticket for tonight? I had lots of fun back in the day at MMB shows.

this is probably the funniest thread on BV. awesome work guys.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
