Skanksgiving

Nov 21st • 5:15 pm • The Garden Amp

No, this is not a pre-holiday dinner for you and your badass grrrl squad – but it could be! Corral your posse of all genders and proclivities and head on over to the Garden Amphitheatre for an evening of ska, rocksteady, reggae and nerd punk featuring iconic headliners the Skatalites. Hailing from Jamaica, Skatalites had their heyday in the mid-60s, but continue to tour with new members, as well as original founders Doreen Shaffer and Lester Sterling. Opening for the band are a roster of notable SoCal acts, including the OC’s Half Past Two, Bah Ram You, the Steady 45s, Opposite Standard, and others. Thanksgiving can be a drag, especially during an election year, so prime yourself the night before with this collection of ska devotees who all share one common politic: music is love and love is music!
