A Friday Night Dance Party in Williamsburg

August 23rd, 2012

Since forming at Columbia University in 1991, 2 Skinnee J’s have gone through a number of record labels, breakups and lineups, but the band’s devotion to New Wave, rap and rock remains constant. (Some even call their sound nerdcore hip-hop.) The group—Special J and J Guevara on vocals, Eddie Eyeball on bass, Lance Rockworthy on guitar, Andy Action on drums and B.A. Miale on keytar—earned a loyal following early on by bringing their playful, high-energy shows on the road, and they continue to bring the noise to this day. So dig out your dancing shoes and go see 2 Skinnee J’s (above, playing “Irresistible Force” and “Mind Trick”) tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
