Minnesota Rocksteady Band Makes First East Coast Run
On Tuesday, July 30, The Prizefighters from Minneapolis, MN will make their first Boston appearance. The band has long been a fixture of the midwest scene, but this date will be a part of their first east coast tour. They’ll be touring support of their new studio album “Firewalk” on Jump Up! Records, their first album since their 2019 release “Follow That Sound.”
The first single from “Firewalk” is “Stop Them,” a timely commentary to the rise in fascism in the USA.
“Stop Them” is a response to the emboldened rise of white nationalism in America and abroad. Less a protest song and more a call to action, “Stop Them” decries the normalization of hatred and bigotry unleashed by right wing extremism, and calls out to everyone to join together to stomp out this behavior in their communities.
We’re honored to be supporting their tour stop at The Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, featuring support from local ska band The New Limits and one more to be announced. DJ Panda will be spinning music before, between, and after bands
Watch the lyric video for “Stop Them” below.
Stay glued to the calendar for more Boston ska shows like this one.
