Spring Heeled Jack To Play Every Song They've Got at Spaceland Ballroom
When New Haven third-wave ska legends Spring Heeled Jack reunited for two shows at Toad's Place in 2010, every member of the band during its prime era ('96-'00 or so) returned to celebrate — aside from their drummer, the late, great Dave Karcich. While some of those members had moved on to other projects and/or no longer felt like rehashing the past on a regular basis beyond those two nights, some wanted to keep the momentum going, picking up where the band left off when their label went under and ska went so mainstream that it temporarily spoiled the genre beyond repair on a national level.
