“Hey Philly, we are super bummed to announce that due to weather, the show at Underground Arts tomorrow, March 14th, has been cancelled. Full refunds are available at point of purchase. We will be back soon, we promise! Stay safe and warm out there."
when the brothers’ former band Telacasters shared bills with her on a summer 2009 tour. Through the years—in which they’ve hit the road with bands like
Rancid and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, in addition to taking the stage at such festivals as It’s Not Dead and Soundwave—The Interrupters have forged a
formidable bond that deeply informs their music. “Loyalty, family, friendship, and
unity—with upstrokes,” says Kevin. “That pretty much sums up The Interrupters and what we are all about.”
Embracing various styles and eras of ska from the 60's through the 80's, and adding reggae, punk, oi!, hardcore, and even hip-hop, jazz and classical influences, they manage to avoid a typical, formulaic ska sound and steer clear of cliché poppy ska lyrics.
Hub City Stompers' line up currently consists of ex-members of bands such as Inspecter 7 (the entire band having made up the bulk of the Inspecter 7 lineup through 2013), Bigger Thomas, Professor Plum, Predator Dub Assassins, Bomb Town, and The Heavy Beat.
Proudly roaming the no-man's-land between the popular ska-core world and the elitist trad-ska world, Hub City Stompers choose to entertain and offed everyone equally and stick to their underground roots. Allied with all in this underground, they share the stage with ska, reggae, oi! Punk, and hardcore bands alike.
With 5 albums and several national and international tours under their boots, HCS is ready to bring their special brand of Dirty Jersey Hooligan Ska to all.
