Although The Slackers have come to Victoria four times in total, Victoria has never really got to see a full Vic Ruggiero set on his own. For those of you that don't know, Vic Ruggiero has his own set of albums and solo performances that he does apart from the Slackers. And he's been doing this for quite some time. This show will be the perfect medicine right after a hype/kick ass Slackers show.
Playing alongside Vic Ruggiero will be Chris Murray - a Canadian ska legend in his own right. Chris Murray will be singing old and new ska tunes and don't be surprised if you see both Vic Ruggiero and Chris Murray double-team on a couple of tunes. All happens at Lucky Bar following The Slackers. Beat the line-up and take advantage of this special pre-sale on now!
