2 Tone Lizard Kings, Everlast, the Gay Blades, and More in This Week's Issue
2 Tone Lizard Kings: Spicing up the AZ ska scene.
Although there isn't particularly an abundance of ska bands in Arizona, local ska band the 2 Tone Lizard Kings are keeping the genre fresh. They incorporate the energy of Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore, a maturing sound, and the vibes of a raucous crowd into their performances, and they put on quite a show.
Everlast may not be the greatest white rapper of all time. Then again, he might be onto something with his reinvented career. Meanwhile, even though the Gay Blades seem to be at a solid point in their musical career as well, perhaps they could use some suggestions. Maybe they could learn a thing or two from artists like Hall & Oates, OutKast, the Louvin Brothers, Steely Dan, and Seals and Crofts.
Plus we've got show previews for Richard Vission, Pinetop Perkins, Curren$y, December to Remember, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and NeedToBreathe.
