Less Than Jake

Doors at 7 p.m. Friday, February 11. Pop's, 401 Monsanto Avenue, Sauget, Illinois.

Ska may never have another true mainstream revival like it did in the mid-'90s, but it's nowhere near the levels of life support it was on a decade ago. Partial credit for the slow, steady resurgence can be given to the hard-touring ska-punk quintet Less Than Jake, a band that probably hasn't taken more than a few months off at a time in nearly fifteen years. Even when the genre fell out of favor with the record-buying public, people could always count on LTJ to come to their city at least once a year — and typically bring a diverse, usually-ska-friendly bill with it. But even with all that time spent in the dingier rock clubs of America, the band's songwriting has yet to suffer. In fact, 2008's GNV FLA (which is named after the band's hometown of Gainesville, Florida) is a more-than-respectable entry into the ever-growing LTJ canon.
