I got an address at the beginning of the month so I got a job a few days after I started looking.

The Onion AV Club reminded me that third wave ska was a thing which reminded me of this story I'm going to share in hubski because I think it's damn funny:

I went to a show with a couple Epitaph punk bands headlining ca. 2001. The opening act was a Christian ska band. They played a cover of Brian Adams Summer of 69. Except it was about Bible camp instead of a sex position. I once saw a live ska cover of a Brian Adams song that was rewritten to be about Christian summer camp. Reflect on that sentence. It was as bad as you can imagine.

And the lead singer kept asking the sound guy to adjust things after every song. The horn section of the ska band was a trumpet.

How they didn't have a bottle thrown at them in front of a bunch of punks, I have no idea. "Live Christian ska Brian Adams cover." That combination of words should not describe an event. About 100 people can claim to have seen such a thing.
