10 Things You Have to Do This Weekend


Thu 12/17
The English Beat


Along with like-minded acts Madness and The Specials, The English Beat helped define the UK’s Two-Tone movement, a late-1970s ska revival fueled by punk and mod sensibilities. Co-led by vocalists Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger, the group disbanded just after finding success in the U.S. via danceable hits like “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save it for Later.” Although reunited shortly thereafter as General Public, the frontmen now lead their own bands, with California-based Wakeling driving the version that lands in SA this week in support of the crowd-funded album Here We Go Love. $20-$25, 7pm Thu, The Korova, 107 E. Martin St., (210) 226-5070, thekorova.com.
