Move on the dance floor to this American ska-core band—a mesh of ska, punk rock, and hardcore. First started in the 1980s, the band became a pivotal inspiration to the genre in the succeeding decade. Heavy bass strums and drumbeats mixed with the horn ensemble’s peppy, high-paced notes create the musician’s contagious upbeat energy. Don’t miss Dicky Barrett’s vocals, bass guitarist Joe Gittleman, tenor saxophonist Tim Burton, and the dancer—yes, the official dancer—Ben Carr, and their hit songs such as, “the Impression That I Get,” and “Where’d You Go?" Sun 8:30 p.m.
