Ska and ska-punk are thriving right now, thanks to a community of great bands with fierce DIY ethics and equally fierce politics. Here's a look into the scene, including interviews with the musicians and labels who are shaping it...
plus John Prine, Charles Bradley, Sharon Van Etten, Tyler the Creator, Jamila Woods, Deer Tick, Gary Clark Jr., The Slackers, and more livestreams you can watch today since there are no live concerts to attend.
”In these troubled times of pandemics, vicious right wing politics, and racial strife, it's hard to find hope. In their concerts, the Slackers are trying to project a message of unity, solidarity, and trying make some hope and joy for the future.”
Las Vegas festival Punk Rock Bowling happens May 21-25 and the 2020 lineup also includes Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Streetlight Manifesto, Propagandhi, Adicts, Avail, Stiff Little Fingers, The Ruts DC, Ho99o9, and more.
