After a short breather, New Music Empire and the Summer of Skariginals are once again picking up the pace with a slew of events you won't want to miss!
It all starts this evening (7/30) at 7:00 PM, when the Ska Revival Tour makes landfall in Long Beach. Come out to DiPiazza's (5205 E Pacific Coast Hwy) to catch The Skariginals along with Survay Says!, The Last Slice, Be Like Max, The A-OKs, and Isolated Victims proving that ska is still very much alive!
The party continues tomorrow night in Pasadena, as Empire hosts its very own showcase. The Skariginals will take to the stage once again along with Good Rocky's Revolver as well as Kevin Geier, who has just been added to the lineup. The show begins at 9:30PM at the Old Towne Pub (66 N Fair Oaks Ave) and remember, guests must be 21 and older for this one!
Capping off the week, The Skariginals will head to La Puente this Saturday evening for the summer dance party all ska and punk fans will want to remember. The show takes place at Bridgetown DIT (1421 N Valinda Ave) at 7:00 PM.
That's all for this week, but stay tuned...The Summer of Skariginals is not over yet, and big news coming up for Drew Tabor, Kevin Geier, De Leon, and more!

The #SummerOfSkariginals rolls on, as do the times for New Music Empire. This past weekend featured two big breaks for our Skariginals: up in Arcadia at the first night of 626 Night Market and over in Costa Mesa in front of an OC Fair crowd. Passersby of all ages congregated towards the stages amidst the street vendors at both events, and the audience partook in some great dancing. Check out one of the fan videos which has already found its way to YouTube...more of our media coverage to come!
Squeezed between these two fabulous shows, Empire staff found a moment to host a networking social and mini-showcase, bringing together old and new industry talent. New highlight artists included Boston native Carly Tefft and Devon Eisenbarger. Be sure to check out all these great artists on social media and their wonderful music...and don't forget, The Skariginals are now on Tumblr!
It's time to check us out on Twitter! We will be posting any company and artist updates and blog posts and sharing anything that excites us in the music scene as it happens. Our handle is:

Stay tuned for more updates!
Since returning from their run on the Vans Warped Tour, the Skariginals are still riding their red-hot momentum. Over the past couple of weeks, they delighted the bar crowds in Santa Monica and Fullerton, attracting old ska fans and new. They even had a few audience members at the familiar Ska Parade show in Fullerton leading the crowd in repeated chants begging for an encore...stay tuned, there may even be footage!
And don't forget to catch the Skariginals at their next stops: The 626 Night Market on July 18th, followed by The Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa. They take to the Hangar Stage at the fair at 4:30 PM on Sunday July 20th, and you can get a great entry discount if you arrive at the fair between 10-11AM. Our street team will also be on hand with Skariginals wristbands, sunglasses, CDs, and even customizable flip-flops! Don't forget to bring the whole family!
