So, I guess there is a new Ska is Dead tour coming to a town near you. Problem is, most of the bands DON'T play ska! Anyway, here is the info (taken from punknews.org).
The organizers behind the Ska is Dead tours have announced plans for the Young Guns tour which will, as the name might suggest, feature newer ska and ska/punk outfits. The entire tour will feature Detroit's We Are the Union and New York City's The Forthrights Select dates will feature Nashville's Stuck Lucky (4/15-4/22), Boston's Brunt of It (4/23-4/28), NYC's The Fad (4/19-4/27), and Indiana's Green Room Rockers (4/13 & 5/1) among others.
