The Snails and Riki Rocksteady & The Arraignments Take Over The Plough and Stars

It's a rocksteady type of night at The Plough and Stars April 26th.

Give us a fruity drink, a tiny umbrella and a seat at the bar this Saturday, because it's spring in Cambridge! The dapper Philadelphia gentlemen of The Snails will be performing rocksteady and reggae-infused music alongside local crooners Riki Rocksteady and the Arraignments Saturday night at The Plough and Stars.

Boston is part of The Snails' short New England stretch before heading out on their Hydrogen Jukebox Tour in support of the upcoming double EP out via Asbestos Records and Stubborn Records this May on CD, vinyl and digital formats.

Songs From The Hydrogen Jukebox is a four-volume series. The May 2014 release will consist of Volume 1: Blue Beat (4 brand new ska/blue beat/boogie songs) and Volume 2: Rock Steady (4 brand new rocksteady songs). Volume 3 and 4 will consist of Reggae and Soul and have a tentative 2015 release date.

For an instant good time, swing by The Plough and Stars (912 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA) Saturday, April 26 at 10pm. 21+, $5 admission. Positive vibes on the house. Full details on the official Facebook event page.
