NYC’s Only Monthly Ska Show

Subway to Skaville is your monthly ska party with a tiki twist, hosted the second Friday of every month at Otto’s Shrunken Head (East Village, NYC), and bringing you the best of the ska genre in all its styles. 


You’ll hear bands with traditional 60s influence to ska-core and everything in between, along with the best NYC selectors spinning you a potpourri of ska, rocksteady, reggae, and dub! 


Our shows feature a mix of local, regional, and touring bands.  You never know who may be playing at the next subway stop! 


Beyond our flagship showcase, you may find us hosting additional events, or you may find the hosts DJing elsewhere!
