Damn you. LTJ is one of my favorite bands. They are alot of fun in concert.

ive seen LTJ twice... so much fun live... i saw em a a few years ago and they had a wheel of fortune game... some fan came up, spun it, and they'd play a few songs off that album... when Borders and Boundaries came up, Chris (lead singer) said "ehh that album sucks, spin it again)

@ Starland w/ Catch 22 they played all of Losing Streak, some of Hello Rockview and of course... We're all Dudes from Good Burger, with a guy on stage skanking with the Good Burger uniform

next tuesday is Streetlight Manifesto and Reel Big Fish @ Starland... can't wait for that

The concert you saw with LTJ was with Streetlight, RBF, Suburban Legends and so on at Starland in the parkinglot right? I was at that concert and it was awesome. I saw them about 2 years ago in the city and they played the Free Credit Report.com song before they came out with their tv ep. It was hilarious. I really wanted to go to the RBF Streetlight concert next week but I couldnt get off of work and afford the 30 dollar ticket. :doh1: So I am extremely jealous of you. Youll have to let me know how it was. Streetlights always great in concert and RBF...well they are always amazing.

I saw Toh Kay (lead singer of Streetlight) in the city back in May on his acoustic tour.....one of the best shows I have ever been to. He was hilarious and awesome. Asked what everyone wanted to hear and people would shout stuff out and hed play it. There were maybe 30 of us in this bar. It was really really cool. He messed the words up a little bit a few times. Before he even started he came out on stage and said "After all these years I still have to go on google and look up my own lyrics to songs because I dont know them." That was pretty funny.

yeaa that was outside @ starland, great show

the freecreditreport song sounds hilarious, id love to see that live if i see them again, but Good Burger was amazing haha

this is my 5th time seeing Streetlight, love seeing them live, and RBF itll be the 3rd... The first time i saw RBF, toward the end of the night, people started to leave just after they finished playing "Beer" The lead singer said "hey! where's everyone going, theres more music!" the horn player then said "uhh what do we do... Lets play Beer again!" so they played Beer and 2nd time and ended with Sell Out the next song... so random and hilarious

I heard about the acoustic tour but couldn't get the time to see it, i am jealous you saw that, must've been epic

and ill let you know how crazy it was, because knowing Streetlight shows inside Starland... its always packed beyond anything legal

I hope they are making a 3rd album... they need new music haha

Streetlight is apparently working on a new cd as is Less Than Jake. I am sad that Scotty K The trumpet player from RBF left. It wont be the same but still awesome. Did you hear LTJ's new EP Greetings from Less Than Jake? Its an awesome EP. Back to their old sound rather then what they sounded like on In with the out croud.

I love Starland but if I get the opportunity to see the same concert at The Chance in Poughkeepsie I take that. That place imo is alot better then Starland. You can be outside of the pit up a step above and still be within 50 feet of the stage.

Glad to see another person on here that knows Ska. :cheers:

I've been watching a lot of MTV30 this weekend on VH1 Classic. They've only showed a few actual videos and VMA and Unplugged musical performances, but nevertheless so far it has been a nice trip down memory lane.

This performance by LL Cool J on MTV Unplugged, which they showed, was one of my favorite Unplugged performances of all time (with Nirvana a close second):

Nice. Nirvana's still tops for me when it comes to Unplugged (it almost feels ridiculous to say that because it's just SO prevalent and overplayed, but it's really the best Unplugged hands down).

Did you notice 120 Minutes is back? Started up last night at 1 AM on MTV2. I caught the first hour before crashing out, it seems like it's gonna be pretty good (might be a little too heavy on the interviews, but still).

Agree with you on the Nirvana unplugged man. Also psyched that 120 minutes is back with Pinfield hosting it! They even pimped out one of my new favorite bands The Joy Formidable right away! Here is their song "Whirring":

I'm in love with their entire debut album, definitely check it out if you haven't!

I also can't get this song that I saw on 120 Minutes out of my head, I absolutely love it! Dom - "Living In America":

To Microwave and Quinn, you have a third person here who's been listening to ska since the late ninties, so cheers! :cheers:

Just heard that Scott is leaving RBF, and that's a shame. To me, Aaron, Scott and Matt Wong are the core of RBF and it will be interesting to see how the band evolves without Scott. Haven't seen them live in quite some time.

As for Streetlight, I'm psyched to hear they are working on new music as they are pretty much the only band out there doing something different with the ska genre. As for LTJ, I didn't pick up the EP but I do have GNV FLA which is fairly decent, much better than In With The Out Crowd. So long as they write good hooks and stick to what thye do bets, their always a good time.

Also, while it's a bit old by now, the latest album from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones is really fantastic. They went back to writing simple, catchy ska tunes and the result is their bets work in quite some time. Was a random buy but glad I did so.

Oh, and I was minutes away from going to that Tomas acoustic show in NYC a few months back. Just didn't get there and from the sounds of it, I missed a good one.

I just discovered Beth Anderson on Pandora... I love this crap :blush:

The video is sort of new agey garbage - I really like the music though!

DOM are a freakin hilarious band. The singer - Dom - refuses to give his last name, because he says he owes people money in Massachusetts and doesn't want to pay it back.

He also said in an interview with Pitchfork that this song, Bochicha (written about his cat, apparently) was used as a goal song by the Worchester Sharks. But when the writer/editor called to confirm, the Sharks said they've never played the song before. You gotta love a band that just says sh!t for the sake of saying it. :lol:

I'm definitely checking them out for a bit at Lollapalooza. It's a shame that Joy Formidable are playing at the same time as Titus Andronicus, because there's just no way in hell I'm missing the only Jersey band on the lineup (and a fvcking awesome Jersey band at that):

Matt Wong left RBF back in 2007 also. I hate when my favorite bands members go their own ways but both of them left the band to pursue a family and other things. I know Wong is making his own beats, I forget what name hes under now.

I have never really been able to get THAT into the bosstones but I do have all of their music and listen to them quite a bit. If Toh Kay does another acoustic show.....I expect both of you to be there with me. hahaha It was the best show I have ever been to.

Here's my favorite song from LTJ's new EP Greetings From Less Than Jake (even though the whole ep is damn good)

Here's a clip from Toh Kay in the city:

As you could tell, he was very talkative and joked around with the crowd all night.

The whole thing was done in a day, it's not as easy to criss-cross the state as it is to jet up the Turnpike. :lol:

Damn, totally forgot Wong had left a few years back. That little nugget of information must have been replaced by a hockey stat or something :D

That LTJ song is a good one and it's nice to hear them going back in time a bit with their sound. Always a good idea to simplify when the music stops working. Oh and that Toh Kay song? Pretty much the coolest thing I've heard all week. Really bummed I missed that show now!

Yeah man, thanks for the link! Going to start getting into Dom, loved what I've heard so far and the singer seems like a real interesting dude haha! I was really hoping to see The Joy Formidable when they played in Princeton recently but I had no money. Hopefully next time they play close to Jersey I can get there, dying to see them. Going to check out Titus Andronicus music later tonight!

Kinda random, but any ska fans like Catch 22? My cousin is the trumpet player.

I'm certain you'll love Titus. In addition to the song in the video I posted, I highly recommend A More Perfect Union, Theme from "Cheers", and Titus Andronicus Forever/...and Ever (two songs, same theme)

I like Catch-22. I've always loved Keasby Nights. Great album. Even when Kalnoky re-recorded it with Streetlight, I liked the Catch-22 version better (possibly because I was so used to it.)

Late to the party, but I was at that RBF/Streetlight show. Had a great time. I don't know as much Streetlight as I do Reel Big Fish, but I enjoyed Streetlight a lot.... Especially the Me and Julio cover.
