2/10/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

2/10 in a nutshell...
We had a wrap-up/celebration of the 3-band ska fest down at the recently-renamed Cause at Lyndale Lake... Secondhand Ska Kings, Umbrella Bed and The Prizefighters played to a nicely-crowded and very receptive house just hours before also getting played on the RSST, both in hour 1 and on the 4@4! Sherwood lit candles for Don Wilson (The Ventures), Bobby Monster Mash Pickett and big-bander Buddy Morrow, and we resumed discovering Caro Emerald... told ya you'd be hearing more from her! The GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month selection (Confucious) got the Josh Roseman treatment this week and heads-up, skassengers... THE TOASTERS make another Triple Rock appearance Wed. 2/16. You can be sure Rob Bucket Hingley will bring his mobile Megalith store with him, his crates are a gas to dig through, and his legendary band got some play in RSST's 3rd hour... and another Caro Emerald gem got spun as well!
