the Slackers in Ontario!

11988436_10153104869177750_7323147497138586390_n

Its been 2 sonically deelish days of Slackers vibes. Been soaking it all in and still thinking back in shock. Did all that just really happen? We just witnessed so many great ska and rocksteady reggae moments that only the Slackers themselves can deliver. All their tunes are currently looping in our head and they likely will for days on end. Dang, they are good, SO GOOD. If you haven’t seen them in awhile, you can be excused for forgetting that they are the tip of the ska iceberg in oh so many ways and these last 2 nights proved it.

Sunday in Barrie, Ontario was a unique, one of a kind experience that you will never see them do again. it was dark. it was intimate. there was only 50 of us and the Slackers played their hearts out for us. Everyone who was there knows it was a special night & that show will live on fovever in my/our minds. They played SO many tunes from Wasted Days and a few new tunes and THEN playing an extra long encore set. Couldn’t be happier with how the night went. It was perfect and it was a dream come true to bring them to town! A massive thanks to the Foxx Lounge for hosting and to the Labcats for opening.

Then Monday at Lee’s Palace in Toronto was HUGE! They packed the joint from wall to wall and the band played at least 50% different material from the show the previous night and also highlighted Better Late Than Never. T’was a personal honour to spin grooves for the night and a tip of the hat to everyone who came up, said hi and chatted. The energy and genuine love for the band was in full swing and also the energy from the band towards audience was fantastic from the get go and we soaked it all in.

Thanks to everyone that made this past Sunday night in Barrie with the Slackers into one for the ages and then to everyone who filled the dance floor at Lee’s Palace on the Monday! Lets end with “I’d rather die happy” from Monday’s fantastic The Slackers show. 

Til’ next time Slackers and THANK YOU for 2 wonderful nights!

PS: here’s a collection of pics we took with the phone from the Slackers at Lee’s Palace show. ENJOY! https://www.flickr.com/photos/djskip/albums/72157660534818488/with/23094020441/
