Music Was Here: Big D & the Kids Table @ Bowery Ballroom (or Marcus learns how to skank)
We forgot all about our drunk writing until a band or two in. We missed the Pandemics (again – will we ever end up seeing them?) and walked in during Rude Girl Revue, which was the most fun thing ever. Right after, this conversation became a thing.
You’re even at this show?
Wasn’t sure we were mdh’ing this
Oohhhhh stop talking fake sports.
We should even if we weren’t
It’s worth words.
Had MDH focus turned off
Weed is tight song. I’m engaged now
Weed is weed. Sing music. Make noise.
Brunt of it seems more my speed off their IG bio
Shout out to the sound guy tonight. Sound isn’t just great but also, it’s not way louder than it needs to be.
Also this shirt is something you probably need
Sound seems fine to me. Didn’t feel myself going deaf during last band. Like I didn’t notice I didn’t have earplugs for most of that set
also, 3.5 hours of non-stop ska tho
This band reminds me of why I’ve never seen Jaya the Cat whilst sober.
I just realized
Do you even know how to skank?
Haha, why would I?
Cause you love your dumb dances, why not to ska.
Can’t say that’s something I picked up anywhere.
Ska is like my 6th choice genre lol
Wait did he just say he wrote this song 25-27 years ago?
My dumb dances I don’t plan
Haha I missed that?
Cause I’m sure the rest of the band members couldn’t legally drive by then
I’m paging Jerrica and we’re planning a Baltimore trip this summer, just so you know.
Oh. But you can’t skank to nü tho
Sure you can!
You’ll get weird looks but sure you can
Burly old dude in this band looks like someone I’d discuss Mets’ strategery with at the nest on a Tuesday night
Haha you would.
Okay no clue who this is but I like it
Ska Marcus ska
S K A
Dude it makes so much sense why the guy with dreads looks familiar
I just looked up who this band is
But he also plays in the Suicide Machines.
Wearing your own band tee to the gig drives the algorithm in a DIY sense
I just wondered
If you don’t know how to skank
How do you even pick it up?
I just bellyflop like recovering a fumble
I’ll eventually figure out what this band is called but it seemed unnecessarily complicated as a band name
I’m very offended by this referendum on my skanking cuz…uhh, you knew this?
No I did not.
I thought you like anyone else seen your share of local ska bands and based your dislike of ska on experience.
Or maybe it was my shitty town that just really loved ska.
I’ve seen the Toasters, Mark Foggo, The Slackers, etc at the venue I once worked back in ’07-’09
And that’s not even locals
Kind of. I think I just avoided ska because I had cringe perceptions
How does it feel to become the cringe you once cringed at?
Ihateit dot com
Yeah, I’m the orgcore and the skramz guy
Big D has all the energy
They’ve got Big D energy
Don’t you agree?
Alot of D energy yes
It’s such a fun band.
Fans are hit and miss but Strictly Rude as a song is just that
Whoops. Guessing I tried to skank and it ate my response
BATMAN WAS THE ONE PERCENT
But it looked good.
Batman was yes.
Skanking is your Steel Reserve Dance with extra steps
