SKA | The Slackers 

Of all the genres I like, I have multiple favorite bands for multiple various reasons. But when it comes to ska, I've got one: The Slackers. Since the early 90's, this Brooklyn-based band has played around rock-steady grooves with subtlety and control, mixing elements of jazz, calypso, and garage rock. When the band comes to town you know it's going to be a fantastic live show.

The Slackers plays with Mrs. Skanotto Thursday, May 16, 7:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $14-$17. bugjar.com.
