Event Archive - SKA BRAWL TOUR: The Toasters, Westbound Train, Satori, Kiltlifters

Sat. February 25th 2006 8pm - 2am @  Victoria Event Centre (All Ages) 8pm - 2am
$20 @ door
It's been so long since either THE TOASTERS or WESTBOUND TRAIN have come to Victoria. The Toasters continue to tour the world over year after year spreading their infectous amazing sounds.

WESTBOUND TRAIN have constantly been touring
around the world (a lot with the Toasters) and have managed to get themselves on the Give Em The Boot Volume 4 comp and get signed to Stomp Records AND be direct support for the Toasters on much of their tour.

SATORI - This is a great new reggae/dub project by Steve Borth from RX Bandits & Link 80. Besides the music being really good, one interesting thing about this band is the record label they are on. Asian Man Records is the distributor but their record label (partially made by Steve Borth) is called MASH DOWN BABYLON RECORDS - where no hatred of any kind is tolerated. This record label also has some cool hip hop acts on it as well.

Finally, the Kiltlifters will join this Ska Brawl bill here in Victoria building on their momentum from a near sell out Victoria show recently. The Kiltlifters are currently working on new material for their next album. - We may get to hear some at the show...

This show is all ages with a full bar.

Tickets $20 at the door!! There are still some space left so come one and all!!

The Toasters (SKA)

THE TOASTERS - up with the ska in 2003!! The Toasters are America's longest running Ska band.

Westbound Train

Westbound Train has been bringing their sweet sounding dance music to the masses since 2001. Their 2002 release,Searching for A Melody, has been described as soulful, flowing, and well rooted, with melodic and yearning lyrics combined with a beat that you can't help but move to. Though the winter of 2003 brought about a change in their lineup, West... more info

Kiltlifters (Van Isle ska/reggae/rock)

If you’ve forgotten how to party then take a crash course from these Nanaimo-based musical dervishes, who deliver a wacky version of west coast ska that has been accessorized with hilarious vocals, a four-man horn line, and a mandate to get the whole crowd going crazy. The band consists of drummer Brodie Ketelsen, vocalist/saxman Matthew Carter, ... more info
