These rude boys from Jersey have hit the road to tour behind their latest release, Somewhere in Between. Riding the third wave of ska on a swell of joyful brass and punk-bleated vocals from frontman Tomas Kalonky (of Catch-22), Streetlight Manifesto wrap reflective lyrics in shiny, glossy packaging that gives every song the same optimistic shape. But with tunes this packed with skankalicious, jazzy guitar riffs and frenetic yet nimble bass lines, you'll be too busy dancing to pick a Fishbone. Hey, just because New Year's is over doesn't mean there's no place for party horns. With Grand Buffet and the Stitch Up. All ages.
