Ska-POW! 2013 at the Triple Rock Feb. 2nd
IT’S BACK! Time for the second annual Ska-POW! Battle Of The Bands at the Triple Rock Social Club! This is not your average ska show, it’s an event brought to you by Tallgrass Brewing Co. and Rude Radio – Radio K. Last year was a smashing success, where a near-capacity crowd cheered on the 4 competitors (and went through 19 cases of Tallgrass tallboys!), ultimately crowning Rocksteady Breakfast with the coveted title belt. In 2013, Rocksteady Breakfast will take on all-new challengers: Umbrella Bed, Drunk History, and The Thundertones. Who will win this year?
The show will be divided into 2 halves. During the first half, each band will play 3 songs (1 instrumental, 1 cover song, and 1 original) before 4 guest judges, who will ultimately decide which band has what it takes to take home the Ska-POW! belt. At the end of the first half, it’s HALFTIME, featuring a ska dance off while DJ Aaron Porter spins vintage Jamaican ska tunes! That’s right, the crowd can get in on the action and show off your best moves! The second half will feature each band playing 4 of their best tunes. The judges will tally their scores and declare a winner. The winning band will take the stage with one more time for a celebration encore and close out the night!
Along with the bands and the DJ kicking out tunes, there will be specials on Tallgrass beer all night long. There will also be a $2 Prize Wheel, featuring all sorts of prizes from the bands. This was one of the most fun shows all year so don’t miss out on this year’s shenanigans! Saturday, February 2nd (Groundhog Day) at the Triple Rock at 8pm. So much ska-related mayhem for only $5!
