The Skatalitesperforming from 9pm to 11pm at Volksplatz
The Skatalites are one of the most important ska groups of all time and the forebearers of first-wave ska. Their adaptation of “Guns of Navarone” is considered to be a masterpiece of the genre, and the fact that they’re playing a free stage at the fest is rad indeed.

South Side
Porter & Sayles – performing from 11pm to 12am at the TD Community Stage
This singer/sondwriter duo from Stroudsburg has gorgeous harmonization backed by country folk rhythms. If you miss them tonight they’re playing another set on Saturday at 6pm.
