Show Info

Ska The Uptones plus The Agent Deadlies, with ska dance contest ($200 cash prize!) Doors at 8:00 pm; Show at 8:30 pm $15/$12 advance & students More than three decades since their legendarily rhythmic birth, the Uptones continue to spread fast-paced ska-punk dance music and “skanking,” which is how one dances to ska. This time around the Uptones are joined by the Agent Deadlies, and they present the Skanking Fools Dance Contest with a $200 cash prize for the winners! Everyone can join the fun. During the two bands’ first sets, judges will pick the best skankers in the crowd and assign them numbers. The numbered skankers will be judged during the Uptones’ second set. The winners get to dance onstage with the band, and there are even consolation prizes for the semifinalists! Just in case you don’t know what skanking is, according to the Uptones’ unabridged dictionary: “Skanking is a form of dancing practiced in the ska, ska punk, hardcore punk, reggae and other music scenes.” In other words, whatever steps you come up with while the band plays is skanking!
