November/December Ska Shows and News

Welcome to first post on Boston Ska (dot) net. Let’s call this a soft launch. I’d been blogging at and decided to start this sucker.

I missed the first couple weeks of November but there’s still a decent amount going on. I wasn’t able to make it to The Toasters on November 3rd at Johnny D’s. Did anyone catch any video from the show? I wasn’t able to find any on YouTube. It’s okay, The Toasters will be at TT’s in March.
