You can win tickets to see The Pietasters live with Parklife DC!
We called The Pietasters a ska band, but they are earnestly much more than that. The Pietasters came of age around DC in a time of overlapping scenes and influences. The scene was small and all the Punks, Skins, and Mods intermixed in those days. You were as likely to see a Mod at a Scream show as you were to see a Punk at a Toasters show. This varied influence is what informed the covers that the Pietasters played and the originals they wrote trying to emulate their favorite bands. From Two-Tone Ska, to Jamaican crooners like Alton Ellis, to Stax, Motown, harDCore, and British Punk, The Pietasters played what they liked to play.
