Based in the Big Apple, the Slackers have been around since 1991. “Ska”, “rocksteady”, dub”, soul” and “reggae” are some of the genre tags that have been applied to their sound. On Sunday, Sept. 21 the sextet is in town to play a show at the University of Regina Theatre. Sharing the bill are the Winnipeg rock/soul band Noble Thiefs and a third band t.b.a.
The show is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m., and tickets are $20. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s the video for “My Bed Is A Boat” off an EP released by the Slackers last January:
