This past weekend I got to interview Boston ska/punk legends Big D and the Kids Table. This was a band I used to open for on a fairly regular basis between ’03 and ’06 while playing in my CT-based ska/punk band Tap Out.

I ran into new and old friends which just added to the reunion vibe. I had the good luck (pun way intended) of talking to them before their set.
