The Skatalites


If anything is going to take you back to your high school rasta phase, it’s going to be this show with famed Jamaica outfit the Skatalites. Instrumental in forming the rude-boy sound by collaborating with iconic artists including Prince Buster, much of the band’s original lineup (they have a four-piece brass section) still rocks steady on tracks such as “Guns of Navarone” and “Garden Of Love.” It shouldn’t be difficult to figure out tonight’s plans: Bowling and ska were made for each other.
