Imagine, if you will, that this is one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books. First things first: Do you like ska? Are you not annoyed by white dudes playing reggae? Do you like neat little hats and fedoras? If you answered yes to any of these questions, keep on reading. If you answered no, please turn to page 123 and end your adventure. To those of you who stayed with me, congratulations. I am pleased to inform you that Hellcat Records' own ambassadors of ska The Slackers are coming to the Clubhouse. Amp up your insatiable need for Brooklyn-flavored rocksteady and get ready to join the band as they play a set that is sure to be filled with songs from their 11th studio album, Self Medication. Ska is not, in fact, dead, and The Slackers are out to prove it is alive and skanking. What could be better than listening to some ska and pretending — for a few hours — that it's 1995?
