.Monkey at the Caravan

Don’t call it the fourth wave. Though it truly never went away, in 2021 ska music is back thanks to a long-awaited critical reappraisal and a generation of new artists and listeners. Here in San Jose, Monkey are an absolute legacy of skankable rhythms and melodies, the Asian Man Records alum having spent the better part of three decades melding all of ska’s various waves into a peppy, danceable groove—and harmonizing all the while. At the ever-lovely Caravan, they’re joined by punk cumbia group El Maldito Crudo, and the triumphant cracking of PBR tall boys all night.
