The Big Ska Gamble!
Who says vinyl is dead?! Probably the same crazy people that say ska is dead! Proving that neither is dead, one of our friends here at Checkered Socks Ska, Rad Jose (23min of Ska), is putting together a sweet subscription club of 7″ records by 6 fresh, newer bands around the country.
The basic premise: starting in July, you will receive 2 7″ records, every other month. Six bands are signed up and have already been recording tracks. The only thing left is for people like you to help support these bands and this project.
If you’re interested [and I know I am] you can jump over to the “The Big Ska Gamble!” kickstarter page and read up on the details and make your donation! If you’ve never heard of or used kickstarter, it is a great web site which helps projects build funding before the project takes off.
