Magadog CD Release
Matt Cowley about almost 3 years ago
Local band Magadog is having a cd release party at Skipper's Friday, June 2. C'mon out!
Ska is so upbeat, so joyous a sound, it seems as if its lyrics would have to be cheery as well. To paraphrase what Steve Martin said about the banjo, you can't sing a depressing song while playing ska.
But Ed Lowery, a Tampa musician with nearly 20 years experience playing ska, might beg to differ.
"Ybor City," the latest album by Lowery's band Magadog, gracefully addresses some dark topics over lively, danceable rhythms.
