Fishbone and the English Beat at World Cafe Live

Two great ska bands that reach back to the 1980s are playing the World Cafe Live tonight: The British second wave band that The English Beat, who stood with Madness and the Specials as the standout ska act of the New Wave era, and Southern California's Fishbone, who brought funk, punk and R & B - and insane live enertgy - to bear on the Jamaican born genre. Neither band is touring with an original lineup intact, however, so it remains to be seen just how authentic an experience it'll turn out to be.
