My cousin* lives in Minneapolis and is majorly into Ska. I tend to enjoy the Ska myself, so I've been interested in his many posts on Facebook about the local Ska scene there. He's been helping to promote this band, and I love the boxer monster fish cyclops thing on their posters.
Someone should write this guy up as a monster or even a player race! (I'm still too busy with academia at the moment, sorry.)
And I guess if you live in the Twin Cities and like Ska, take my cousin Adam V.'s advice and check these guys out.
*actually my cousin's son, so that's what, a first cousin once removed? He's the same age as my little sister, so I won't stand on technicalities.
