After screening at theaters and film festivals around the world, former Rude Radio host Brad Klein’s documentary film Legends of Ska will be playing at the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis on two dates this summer. The film focuses on the birth of ska music in Jamaica and according to the film’s Facebook page, “intersperse[s] old and new concert footage, interviews, photographs, slides, artifacts and even tourist home movies to transport viewers to a time and place when things were a bit simpler.”
Judging from the trailer below, this looks like a must-see for any fan of Jamaican music!

When: Thursday July 16 and Thursday August 13 at 7 PM, followed by a Q&A at Pepito’s
