To close out the 2 days of screening the year's best ski and snowboard films and celebrating snow culture, we're ending things with a bang at the La Tulipe Theatre in Montreal, Quebec with SKA SOUND SYSTEM.
Born out of a shared love of ska, punk & reggae, and a post-pandemic need to let loose, and skank it up, a group of musicians and friends in Montreal have put together a project called Ska Sound System to have fun and make people dance and sing.
Featuring members of several Montreal bands (Grimskunk, Me, Mom & Morgentaler, Colectivo, FoOlish, Francbâtards, Van Hornies, Blue Monkey Project), this group has no pretension other than to spread good party vibes through a diverse array of old school and modern ska, punk and reggae through the music of bands like Sublime, The Clash, the Specials, Operation Ivy, Rancid, Toots & the Maytals, Madness, etc… all with a touch of international and latin ska and a few Grimskunk classics to boot.
As the lyrics go :
"To resist despair in this world is
What it is what it is what it is to be free
Sound system gonna bring me back up
One thing that I can depend on"
