Boston’s own Mr. Furious has released their debut EP entitled “Raspberry Iced Tea!” This ska/punk band originates from the South Shore and serves up a high energy sound, unique to anything else in the scene right now.
Earlier this month, Boston’s own A Guy Named Guy set out on a three-week tour across the Northeast and Midwest USA. This Monday is their homecoming show at the Middle East in Cambridge and they’ve put together a venerable Boston Ska showcase.
I went a bit overboard late last year, insisting on drinking and smoking through a cold that became a full-fledged plague by the last night of the Hometown Throw down. With a weekend of fun ska/punk shows coming up, it’s a good time to recap the madness.
Maybe it’s the seasonal good cheer or maybe it’s all the college students home on winter break, but there are more ska shows this December than there have been since I move to Boston in July.
