LA promoters Through Being Cool—who’ve been fighting hard for the dignity of the '90s and '00s with earlier nights packed with Ozma, Imperial Teen and Braid tracks—did their all-ska all-night Skaugust show at Barcade in (of course) August, and now they’re bringing that same combo of pleasures both honest and adorably guilty to Alex’s Bar with their Sell Out! Ska Nite. DJs Carlos, Dye Job and Sci Fi Scorpio promise selections (including selections by the Selecter) from each wave of the ska revivals, starting with the Specials and Madness and sliding all the way up to Sublime and Save Ferris. (Hometown tip: work in some Suburban Rhythm, too.) For those of you fearing you’d never skank again, here’s one last chance to pick-it-up-pick-it-up-pick-it-up.
