Just as New Orleaneans thought the “Week of All Things Awesome” had come to a close with the recent Jazz Fest announcement, the humble men behind a local punk/ska label have come forward to respectfully disagree. Last night, I came home to find an e-mail from Community Records, which succinctly read:
Though understated, I can assure you that Greg and D-Ray, owners and operators of local indie outfit Community Records, are just as, if not more excited than I am. In addition to the ska/progressive rock legends, the fourth annual Block Party will feature We Are The Union and Matt Wixson, as well as ska and punk bands from ten states and the Dominican Republic. On the local end, mainstays Fatter Than Albert will be joined by many young indie rock bands like Caddywhompus and Sun Hotel.
