If the Mayan's are right, the world will end sometime today. A few years ago, my high school / college ska band, The Rowskabouts, planned to play one last show as the world was ending... so we're playing tonight at Kitchen Pass in Joplin! The doors open at 8, and the show is only $5. There is only one or two ways I could better think to go out if the world is ending...
From the bowels of middle America, sucked by
the teet of small town boredom, a lost double dare, a failed attempt at
the “knifey knife” record; out of necessity, The Rowskabouts--second
best band of all time--was born. The year was 1995.
After a full
18 years of playing the same 20 songs, this collective of stereotypes
have whittled down their sonic array to include only the most meditative
melodies, precise poly-rhythms, and
level headed lyrics. Along with the relevant display of fantastic horn
lines, the rhythm section makes this group almost unbeatable. Almost.
With smooth classic tunes such as “Mohaska,” “Proctoral,” and “Hookey
Schnacky,” this ensemble will literally have you begging for more.
For the best End of the World party you could ever experience (with
one possible exception) make sure to stop by and experience the nearly
amazing Rowskabouts. They will be performing just before the End of the
World on December 21, 2012 at the Kitchen Pass in Joplin. The show
starts at 8PM and ends when it ends, if you know what I mean. Your $5
admission fee will be returned if the world does in fact end.
