Skaliticians opening up for Panteon Rococo

Hello everyone, here is a gig announcement. This will be our biggest show yet and a great night for Ska in Minneapolis.

Three Ska Bands Panteon Rococo, Malafacha and Skaliticians August 12, 2010 El Nuevo Rodeo 2709 E. Lake St. Minneapolis, MN 55406

Skaliticians, a nine member ska band from Minneapolis, blends Latin rhythms, bilingual lyrics and up-beat ska grooves to put on a high energy show. They will be opening up for Panteon Rococo as they make their way through Minneapolis on their North American tour.

Panteon Rococo is from Mexico, and since 1995 have been well known for their great ska sound and live performances.

Malafacha is from Chicago and has been part of the Midwest ska scene for many years. They have been impressing audiences with their explosive horn section.

El Nuevo Rodeo is the hottest Latin venue in the Twin Cities, with great live music and amazing food.
