Less Than Jake

Gainesville ska punks Less Than Jake have announced a 2016 tour of two-night stands, playing 1996's Losing Streak on night one and 1998's Hello Rockview on night two in each city. LTJ gets cheesy at times (like a lot of ska punk), but they were a lot more fun at Riot Fest Denver this year than some of the "cooler" bands, and I'll always ride for Losing Streak as one of the genre's most enjoyable LPs. If you were ever considering seeing this band, seeing that album front to back is the way to do it. And Hello Rockview, being home to "All My Best Friends Are Metalheads" and all, ain't too shabby either.

The tour hits NYC on March 9 at Highline Ballroom (Losing Streak) and March 10 at Gramercy Theatre (Hello Rockview). Tickets go on sale Wednesday (12/2) at noon and Friday (12/4) at 10 AM, respectively, and there's a Live Nation presale for the Gramercy show starting Wednesday at 10 AM.
