Yea!!! Spanish Punk Legends SKA-P @ Irving Plaza

SKA-P, the iconic ska-punk rock outfit from Madrid, Spain, will be playing a rare, one-night-only concert at New York's Irving Plaza on Saturday, November 11th. Tickets are $34.50 and are available at LiveNation.com.

Ska-P's songs feature an infectious and energic vibe, with the rockers mostly singing about non-conformity and individuality, criticizing capitalism and racism, and defending equal justice for all people. Throughout their career, Ska-P has backed up their words with actions, taking part in various multicultural, alternative and anti-globalization festivals and protests. After wildly successful tours throughout Europe and South America in the 90's and early 00's, Ska-P took a hiatus, much to the chagrin of their fans, to pursue side projects, and personal endeavors. The band reformed in 2008 and toured South America and Europe, before releasing Lágrimas y Gozos. New York was not a stop on that tour however, but now for the first time in years, Ska-P will perform at the legendary home of rock & roll in New York City, Irving Plaza.
