The Slackers: Rude. Reckless. Ready to Dance.
That The Slackers should arrive nearly 20 years after I first saw them perform live, and around the anniversary of their now classic album, Redlight, seems a bit of cosmic symmetry. Their mixture of traditional Ska, reggae, rocksteady, dub, jazz, soul, R&B, and whatever else they feel like playing is a welcome detour from the typically rock, metal, and folk heavy offerings we’ve seen over the past few years.
