SKA | The Untouchables 

Formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, The Untouchables breezed in on the wings of ska's second wave and L.A.'s mod revival. Poor distribution and the confusion that they were a band by the same name in the UK, kept the band underground. But the band's driving rock-steady shows with bands that were the who's who in L.A. at the time (The B-52s, Bow Wow Wow, Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, and X) earned them legions of fans. And appearances in movies like "Party Animal" and "Repo Man" added to The Untouchables's cult appeal.

The Untouchables play with Stay Fresh, In Crowd, RetroHeir, Black Magic, Krisus, and Bvelz on Thursday, January 29, at California Brew Haus, 402 West Ridge Road. 7 p.m. $10-$12. ticketfly.com; tecshows.com.
