Marco On The Bass & Duff Guide To Ska Host 'NYC Ska Music Party' at Dusk Lounge on December 29th: Say Farewell to 2010 and Welcome In 2011!
While 2010 will likely be a year that many of us will be happy to see go into the books, it was also a high point for all things ska related. There were more new ska album releases then you could shake a stick at, as well as reunion shows and tours, album reissues, books and more that helped keep ska fans the world over, happy, and helped to take the sting off the economic recession which continued to batter world economies.
To that end, my fellow Big Apple ska blogger Duff Guide To Ska (Steve Shafer) and I are joining forces to throw an NYC Ska Music Party on Wednesday December 29th at Dusk Lounge in New York City (site of the NY Beat: Hit & Run 25th Anniversary Party earlier this year). Come out to enjoy the best in 60's ska, 2-Tone, reggae, rocksteady, skinhead reggae and soul courtesy of DJ Duff Guy and the Fat Albert Sound System. You will also enjoy great conversation courtesy of other ska fans and plenty of drink specials (courtesy of barkeep and former A-King bassist Sid Reitzfeld) and there might be a giveaway or two! Join us to remember the year in ska that was 2010 and get ready to ring in 2011!
Dusk Lounge is located at 147 West 24th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in New York City and the phone number is 212-924-4490. More information and details are available on the Facebook invitation. Hope to see you there!
