5/26/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_5/26 in a nutshell..._
Prince Buster turns 73 this weekend! Our tribute included the man himself and his revolving crew of All Stars, The Charmers telling the Prince to Dip Them, Dawn Penn on one of Buster's many record labels, and both Judge Dread and Madness, a pair of artists with Buster-inspired names active in the 2 Tone era... and, jumping across the second hour into hour 3, a PB cover by The Specials (Too Hot). Sherwood B. Funn highlighted coming-to-towners Anna Calvi (Sun. 5/29 @ Triple Rock) and Dengue Fever (Fri. 6/3 @ 7th St. Entry). the 4(+1) featured the recent covering the ancient, and RSST reminds you again, between 4:30 and 5:a.m., that... The Night Sky's Turning Blue! Rise and shine...
