Fri. November 29th 2013 @ Publik Victoria BC (No Minors)
9:45pm - 2am doors at 9pm
Finally our hometown reggae/punk/ska heroes Hillside Hooligans are coming out with a long awaited new album for everyone on the Island and beyond to enjoy. It's been awhile since we've seen Hilliside Hooligans... Their last appearance was at Victoria's 14th Annual Ska Festival opening for The Debonaires at Ship Point Inner Harbour.
Joining them will be the ska veterans of Vancouver - LOS FURIOS! Don't miss your chance to see Los Furios in action. They don't come over the straight very often either and their last appearance in Victoria was at Ska Fest opening for Mad Caddies at Ship Point.
Finally Downtown Mischief is a 10 piece funk/reggae/ska/hip hop ensemble of wickedness (with a capital "W" in the best way possible). Downtown Mischief are an offshoot of The Boots of Mischief but just bigger!
All this fun goes down at Publik (we call it the old Limit) 1318 Broad Street in Victoria.
Tickets $12 advance available at Lyle's, Ditch & ticketweb.ca!
