.Monkey + The Odd Numbers at the Ritz

Every several years, Saturn and Mars conjunct in just the right way to make music astrologers descend from the mountains with tears in their eyes and proclaim: “ska is back, baby.” 2021 has been one of those years. Whether through the formation of hot new bands like Catbite, or the recognition of tireless flag bearers like Skatune Network, the oft-clowned-upon genre is having a bit of a moment, and this weekend rudies can celebrate the new Year of Ska by skanking to Monkey, a Bay Area band that has carried the torch for bright brass and upstrokes for 25 years.
