City of Sk6ers

About a month ago, Ms. Jen asked me who my current favorite band is, and I said Stephen Kellogg & the Sk6ers. Seeing their show at the Troubadour last Thursday was the third time I've seen them this year (but the first time I've seen them headline). Don't be too impressed with me, though, as I'm a bit late coming to the party. This spring, Stephen Kellogg & the Sk6ers celebrated their 1,000th show with a performance at Irving Plaza in NYC. Better late than never, right? Oh, well. Their Troubadour show was a remarkable example of the staying power of this band.
