Last night I went to my first ska show. I'd heard ska before, but only someone else's selection in someone else's car. I didn't think I cared for it that much.
But I was invited to a show at Slim's to see The Streetlight Manifesto, so I went.
And wow! What fun!
All those horns sound abrasive on car speakers but live they were bright and full and happy sounding. Before I could stop myself I was bopping around and dancing with sweat-soaked 18 year olds.
Ska. Huh. Who'd have thunk it.
