Sept. 7-Oct. 6, 2005

On Weds. September 7, The Ska Is Dead Tour will once again emerge from its underground crypt to wreak havoc on slightly less unsuspecting victims coast to coast. Over the course of the last two Ska Is Dead tours it has gone beyond being an experiment, fluke, or novelty, into what is on the verge of becoming an institution in an always fickle music scene.

Ska Is Dead 1 kicked off in February of 2004 and featured co-headliners Catch 22 and Mustard Plug as well as Big D and the Kids Table and the Planet Smashers. The initial tour was an obvious success and played in front of over 20,000 fans tour-wide. Ska Is Dead 2 went out in January of 2005 and featured skacore veterans Voodoo Glow Skulls, Midwest third wave pioneers, MU330 and fan favorites Streetlight Manifesto. The tour built on the success of SID1 and sold out many of the shows including such high profile venues as the Metro in Chicago and Starland Ballroom in NJ.

Ska is Dead 3 will continue breathing new life into the North American Ska scene by playing the best all ages venues, keeping ticket prices reasonable, and featuring solid packages of the best and most important Ska bands today. This tour’s package expands even further, featuring not only the most established North American ska band in history, NYC’s The Toasters, but also will features much of the cream of today’s up and coming national ska bands, such as Hawaii’s Go Jimmy Go, Boston’s Westbound Train, Philly’s SGR and Texas’ Los Skarnales. Rounding out the package, veteran acts such as Mustard Plug, The Planet Smashers and Buck O Nine will play select shows.
