The Specials


Proud rude boys (grandfathers?), ska-punk legends the Specials reformed last year to celebrate their 30th anniversary—though the group’s main songwriter, Jerry Dammers, didn’t participate and called the reunion a “takeover.” Regardless of the drama, the 10-piece group, fresh off their Coachella performance, is more than capable of recreating their skittery, bouncy former glories (mostly thanks to the flugelhorn). The only differences are the sizes of the trademark suits they all continue to insist on wearing.
