You’d be hard-pressed to find an individual doing more to shed light on the illustrious past and vibrant present of ska music than Aaron Carnes. Through his acclaimed book, and podcast of the same name, In Defense of Ska, Carnes’ work is a wonderful entry point for those uninitiated in the world of ska and a powerful reminder for those who already love the genre. His roster of guests is exciting and diverse, touching all over the world of ska, including comedian Margaret Cho, musical luminaries like Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Eugene Hütz (Gogol Bordello), Stuart Copeland (The Police) and rapper Open Mike Eagle. In Defense of Ska has even welcomed out very own Dane Roberts as a guest on Episode 73, detailing a big swath of our festival’s history.

As part of our Free Ska Sessions, Carnes will be in Victoria for our landmark 25 th Anniversary for a very special live recording of In Defense of Ska with two true Legends of Ska – Jay Navarro of The Suicide Machines and our old friend Vic Ruggiero of the Slackers. Come join us for what is sure be an epic ska conversation with three veterans of the scene.
