Have you heard the new Reel Big Fish song? Supposedly, “Party Down” has been playing on the radio sporadically on the West Coast. I say, skavoovie. Their new CD comes out July 10, and they’re touring with Less Than Jake and Streetlight Manifesto. If I have it my way, I’ll see them live three times this summer – Baltimore, Norfolk and Richmond. I can’t wait!
I’m sick of emo music. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that everyone else is, too. It could be the beginning of the fourth wave! I’m talking two-tone belts and skanking in the streets! Think about it – no more mushy, whiney crap on my iPod!
Here are the signs:
1. BOTAR is auditioning new musicians (including an oboe player…hmmm) and supposedly releasing a full-length album.
2. LTJ just released a new CD.
3. Streetlight Manifesto is supposed to release one soon.
4. RBF finally broke away from Jive records and is ready to have some fun.
5. The Pietasters and Buck-O-Nine are both releasing new albums in August!
Ska kids unite! Bring on the fourth wave!
