Reel Big Fish w/ Survay Says!, This Magnificent, Fairhaven
Blue Moose Tap House — Wednesday, June 11 at 6 p.m. ($20-$22, All Ages
With flannel coming down the runways of high fashion labels, it’s safe to say that the 1990s have come back in full force. Many associate the ’90s with grunge music, but the other major musical force was ska. Sharing passing similarities with its Jamaican origins, the music’s high energy was extremely popular across the country, bolstered by labels like Moon Ska and Chicago’s Jump Up Records.
Reel Big Fish was one of the best ska revivalists, and they have changed very little over the last 20 years — they still sound the same and skank as hard as ever. Old and new ska fans as well as punk-poppers should find a place to skank together at this show.
