To-Do Tonight: The Skatalites
Fresno’s always proving itself to be something of a ska town. Well, tonight, we get some ska legends in the flesh.
The Skatalites, a first-wave ska band founded in the 1960s in Jamaica, is playing Audie’s Olympic.
It’s been said that The Skatalites are to ska what The Wailers are to reggae. A few of the original members still play with the band, despite being pretty old. So catch ‘em while you can.
The Skatalites are best known for their song “Guns of Navarone.” Big ol’ local ska Los Hooligans are also on the bill.
For the young punk crowd: Denver’s Potato Pirates are at the Chinatown Youth Center. It’s an all-ages show that starts at 6 p.m. $5 at the door.
