(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door)

Lots going on this week, I am very excited about hopefully spending tomorrow morning with a couple of the names on that list, check back here tomorrow to find out who!

I should also bring to your attention the abundance of SKA that's going to be generated at the O2 Academy this week as The Specials begin a five night residency. If you're going best dust off your pork pie hat and start warming up those SKA shuffling muscles to these videos, and if you not going well why not have a little dance anyway, it's good for the soul!





This is Ska! from 1964





The Specials - Too Much Too Young

Have a great week.
