Mixtape: SKA 101

Take out your dancing shoes and get ready to dance the weekend away to the sound and rhythm of flying trumpets. The 4th annual Montreal Ska Festival drops on Thursday, Oct. 11 and will stir up the city until Oct. 14. The festival offers an amazing program with must-see performers from the local and international scene. Check out the Launch Party, the NYC Showcase or All-Skanadian Night and you’ll have no choice but to “dance your butt away,” as the organizers put it. And why not end the weekend with a delicious Sunday ska-brunch at Ye Olde Orchard with Mitch Girio’s acoustic show. Your eggs and ska-con will never have tasted so good!
