Less Than Jake Tonight's gig was a real treat for ska punk fans, featuring two of the genre's biggest names as double headliners, with support from two more well established bands. Despite the early start time, Nottingham's famous Rock City was packed to the rafters and the energy was palpable from the very beginning.

Slam Dunk Festival Another year of Slam Dunk, another year of flitting between stages and attempting to avert the eyes from the tiny denim shorts and the flesh they are revealing in 80% of their wearers. Tattoos a plenty are on show. The boys are a mix of sleek quiffs, emo hair and long tresses, whilst the girls bring the colour to the hair from vintage rockabilly looks to straight up grunge, with a few corsets and heels for good measure.

It's every ska-punk fan's dream come true: a double billing of ska behemoths Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake, with stellar support in the form of Zebrahead. Unsurprisingly, it's a sold out gig and it's not long before the place is buzzing ready for the first act of the night.

It made some fans wonder whether they were just trying to mix things up, or whether they felt they couldn't fill the bigger venues any more.
