NYC ska vets The Slackers made their return to the stage over the weekend with shows at the Arrogant Swine in Brooklyn. "Last night in Brooklyn was our first concert at a venue in 18 months," they wrote on Facebook on Saturday (5/15). "Thanks to everybody who has been so supportive. Its really hard to put into words how thankful we are to get to play in person, in front of fellow humans again. its been a long time coming." You can watch a video, and see one show's setlist below.
They have more shows coming up, starting with a livestreamed Backyard Party that airs on Friday (5/21) at 7:30 PM ET. Tickets are on sale now. After that are free shows in Woodstock, NY (May 23 at Colony Beer Garden) and Bethlehem, PA (June 5 at Steelstacks), a Brooklyn rooftop party on June 4, and a Mount Vernon, NY backyard party on June 6; email [email protected] to attend the parties.
