I’m back digging into my backlog of photos once again, with a night of Ska music to remind us of the good times before. This tour brought two staples and favorites of the genre, The Toasters and Mustard Plug, tag team headlining duties. Dave and Mustard Plug were their usual charismatic and fun selves taking top billing this night. Bucket singing songs from the Toasters that are so remembered they ended up more like singalongs with this crowd.
I would be beside myself not to mention this tour introducing me to Half Past Two. I can’t speak highly enough of this band, because their stellar performance prompted me to purchase all four CD albums they had available. By putting some time between the show and writing this, additionally, I can say they have been in my heavy listening of music these past six months. Of course, don’t let me neglect to mention our always amazing locals in the 2 Tone Lizard Kings getting the honor to open up with their bombastic energy and songs. A spectacular night of Ska and 2-Tone music that I hope these shots stir found memories and good feelings in a time we can use right now.
