It was an incredible night of music as ska/punk legends Less Than Jake shared the stage with political punk legends Anti-Flag as Less Than Jake skanked and brought the good times at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey on this lovely winter evening!

After all these years the gang in Less Than Jake brought the energy and I loved how Chris interacted with the crowd.  Somebody lost their shoe, Chris gave that fan shit about it, but he was allowed to dance on stage for the next song.  The crowd interaction made it feel like a party and it was plain to see why Less Than Jake has been around for as long as they have.  People definitely danced and jammed out to their absolutely fun song “Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Sellouts”.  The band did a quick verse of “Wanted Dead Or Alive” by Bon Jovi, and they said, “Jon Bon Jovi is 64 years old and he’s better looking than me, fuck him!” People sang to every word, and the band just jammed out to ensure an amazing time for the Sayreville audience!

Here is the setlist:


Suburban Myth

Short Fuse Burning

A Still Life Franchise

Al’s War

She’s Gonna Break Soon

Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Sellouts

Look What Happened

Never Going Back To New Jersey

Whatever The Weather
