Launched in November of 2012, this site is a modest attempt at carrying the torch that bostonska.com lit so brightly. We are here to help build community and create awareness around the Boston-area ska, reggae, and rocksteady scene. We aim to capture all of it’s activity today, while honoring those who laid the foundation that got us here. We are here to share news, shows reviews and previews, record reviews, interviews, and maintain a calendar to the best of our abilities. This is about your news, and your scene. Any omissions are unintentional.

If you’re looking for a message board of any sort, we recommend you head to the Boston Ska Facebook group.

If you’ve got news to share of any kind, please email tips (at) bostonska (dot) net.
