The Specials: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013

If you're married with a kid but you should be having fun, there are worse things you could do this weekend than go skank your brains out to The Specials. This legendary U.K. ska crew created some of the most memorable songs of the genre — including "Ghost Town," "A Message to You, Rudy," and "Too Much Too Young." The Specials' influence is far-reaching, yet the band still remains relevant, with an undying commitment to extremely danceable tunes that pack a punch and a political message. Don't forget to keep it stylin' and don some Ben Sherman, though — these guys aren't messing around on the fashion front, either.
