It’s hard to imagine life without ska from The O.C. Supertones. It’s even tougher to remove my personal thoughts about the announcement of the band’s very last show. I’ve followed the Supertones since the heyday of the ska era and their landmark releases, Hi-Fi Revival, Revenge of The O.C. Supertones, and Chase the Sun. The band disappeared for 5 years, reunited in 2010, and delivered the solid, For The Glory in 2012.
But it was the band’s stellar second release, The Supertones Strike Back, that brought them to the front of the ska scene. The Supertones have elected to go out the the best. Their final show will have the band celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Supertones Strike Back, by playing the entirety of the album, plus songs from other O.C. Supertones releases.
$20, great ska, great memories, and PAX217 as the opener. Gonna be a great night. Tickets go on sale March 17, 10am via https://www.ocsupertones.com/. Show date: June 3, 2017, The Shoreline Church, 211 Avenida Fabricante, San Clemente, CA
