November/December Ska Shows and News

Cross-posted at (calling it a soft launch)

So I missed the first couple weeks of November but there’s still a decent amount going on. I wasn’t able to make it to The Toasters on November 3rd at Johnny D’s. Did anyone catch any video from the show? I wasn’t able to find any on YouTube. It’s okay, The Toasters will be at TT’s in March.

  • Big D has been tweeting up a damn storm since they’ve been in Asia. Wish they promoted their Halloween show that much…

Meanwhile, I’ve since bought (if the cross-posting didn’t already imply that). There’s not much there yet but I’d essentially like help promote bands, shows, and generally hype up the scene. Email me at jake (at) bostonska (dot) net if you’d like to contribute in any way. Also, I’m still on the hunt for band mates.
