Valentine’s Day Is for Lovers… of Ska Music

Skalentine's Day Flyer | Boston Ska

The sooner we all admit that ska is our one true love, the sooner we can move on with this relationship.

What better way to celebrate the Feast of Saint Valentine than with a line up of Boston ska and punk bands in Brighton! It’s not like you made any plans anyways. Your partner will thank you, I promise. This affair features the newest and sexiest of Boston’s ska talent.

Fans of Big D and Streetlight will crush on Poor Jeremy and A Guy Named Guy. The Rolling Coasters serve up ska/punk for those sweet on Leftöver Crack and Common Rider. If you dig on Westbound Train or The Pietasters, hook up with The New Limits. (This bit doesn’t get old.) Roggie’s has a great tap selection and you can order pizza making for quite the date.

Superska Valentine's Day Flyer | Boston SkaPerhaps you find yourself stranded on the other side of the Charles? Fear not! SuperSka will sweep you off your feet. Fans of The Skatalites will be completely lovestruck with SuperSka.

My guess is that they’ll probably play right until last call. If you play your cards right, you could probably hit both shows.

You can find a running list of Boston area ska shows at the calendar.
