Dancing and drinking and ska bands...OH MY! I recently had the pleasure of taking part in a fascinating Facebook debate on whether or not we are in or on the verge of a Fourth Wave of Ska. There were some more than qualified folks from great bands, folks from around the scene, and all around the country who weighed in on their opinions. What does a new "Wave" actually entail? There were comments about required innovation and fresh style. There were references made to The Aquabats show and the appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba by the Aggrolites. The fact that The Slackers never stopped making great music and touring around the world since the last "wave" hit. Discussions that maybe this resurgence of great shows the last three years or so is simply the swell before the wave. For all we know, the next great scene shifting sound could be in a basement right now... It was also mentioned that it could be coming simply due to the fact that there are heirloom tours again.
