Day 4 of The London Intl Ska Festival see’s a Ska Explosion / late 80s special starring Maroon Town, the Potato 5 horns, Capone & The Bullets all playing in the Academy Islington 2. Please note there are only 200 tickets available for this!
DJ for the evening is Peter Craig (who will be spinning classic sounds from the era including; Hotknives, The Loafers, Forest Hillbillies, The Deltones, 100 Men, Potato 5, Laurel Aitken, The Trojans, Maroon Town, Busters All-stars, Capone & The Bullets and more).
The late 80’s was a huge time for British ska, with a superb scene and coverage not seen since the days of 2 Tone. The peak of the era came with the birth of The London Intl Ska Festival at The Brixton Fridge in Dec 1988 and 2 shows (Mar and May 89) at London’s now bulldozed Astoria Theatre.
We are delighted to have 3 of the acts from the Ska Explosion years performing at The London Intl Ska Festival’s 30th anniversary.
Free entry for LISF2018 wristband holders.
Ticket for this show also gets you into the Tighten Up and Time Tunnel club nights in the Islington Academy main room and room 2 respectively. Both run til 2am.
