The Toasters bills itself as the longest-running United States ska band, which, given the ups and downs of the genre's popularity in this country, is a little like winning a tallest midget contest. Still, the New York group paved the way for countless latter-day ska acts by sticking to the horn-heavy sound of the genre's Jamaican innovators and by founding Moon Ska Records. The label played host to many up-and-comers (including St. Louis' beloved Isaac Green & the Skalars), and both the Toasters' music and its label helped legitimize ska's third wave and push the music out of the underground. Fellow ska survivors (and one-time Moon Ska label mates) the Pietasters and local jump-blues combo Miss Jubilee & the Humdingers open the show.
