Ska Weekender Interview: Son of Dad

If you remember a little from last year’s Ska Weekender it’s that Son of Dad packed up and backed up for all three dates on the tour.  This year though punters will only have the chance to catch their antics in Adelaide, one of biggest parties on the tour.  We caught up with Craig and Matthew to see what they are bringing to the table in 2012, other than being one of the horniest bands on the bill.  Read the full interview here.

Dying Scene Presents: Ska Weekender Festival 2012

Dying Scene is incredibly chuffed to announce that, for the second year running, we’ll be presenting the Ska Weekender Festival held over the 8th, 9th and 10th of June.  Also for the second year running the tour will take in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney over three crazy nights / hungover days.

In tow this year is a man who is no stranger to the Ska Weekender Festival and no stranger to Ska. Better known for his vocal contribution to MU330 but these days focussing on his solo material, Dan Potthast never leaves a crowd unsatisfied.

Dying Scene Presents: 2011 Ska Weekender Festival wrap-up

Finally!  The 2011 Ska Weekender Festival is only one sleep away so we are going to re-live the Ska Weekender Festival magic that we’ve been working on for the past few weeks.  We spoke to a few bands that are hitting the stage this weekend and some came to the party early letting  DS stream their tracks.

DS Ska Weekender Interview: Son of Dad

It’s funny that Son of Dad considering themselves a lazy ska band considering they will be gracing the stage at all three stops on the Ska Weekender Festival 2011 tour.  We spoke to them about being lazy, free downloads, ska music and it’s critics and coordinating schedules.  In the past, the band has received some criticism for sounding “too American” so we also asked for their thoughts on the Australian ska scene which they state “needs to mature a bit.”  Read the full interview here.
