Tonight on 100% Ska, we first highlight the brand-new, all-women supergroup, Rude Girl Revue, and then take off for a jet-setting international extravaganza of ska that will take us through the UK, Europe, South America, and the United States!
Rude Girl Revue is an all-women supergroup comprised of the women playing who were playing in the bands at Supernova Ska Festival, along with a few others from bands local to Virginia, and began as a concept almost two years ago by the hosts of the podcast Checkered Cast. For their inaugural performance at Supernova 2021 they performed a set of mostly covers, but also debuted two original songs recorded prior the event, which are now available for download! Check the songs out on the Rude Girl Revue Bandcamp page, and listen to an interview between Checkered Cast and some of the founding members to learn more about the band!
With 2021’s Supernova featuring bands almost exclusively from the United States, I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight some of the great international bands that are out there performing today, that could one day find themselves on the stage at Supernova on this week’s episode!
And we finish out the show with the new single from Half Past Two, whose new album will be out on Pay Attention Records at the end of October!
If you aren’t familiar with the bands, but like what you hear, definitely dive deeper! Many of these bands have multiple albums and singles ready for you to discover!
