Dust off your Vans, break out the porkpie, dredge up your sunglasses one last time, and get ready for some serious skanking. After 20 years of playing fast and loose with the mosh pit, these Grand Rapids boozehounds are touring the East Coast with their horn-heavy brand of third-wave ska punk. They’ve released six studio albums and taken the two-tone beat across the world, consistently touring even beyond the genre’s ’90s heyday. Best washed down with copious amounts of cheap beer, this is the sound of the suburbs at their most reckless and hardcore. With Flatfoot 56, Hub City Stompers, and The Jukebox Romantics.
