One night a few years ago, my husband and I wandered into the Tap Root and encountered the Nervis Rex (Anchorage’s ska band of 18 years), for the first time. People flooded the dance floor, smiles were everywhere, and the energy in the room was running high. It was AWESOME, and now we try to make it to their shows when we can. Lucky for us, it’s “Ska Saturday” at Humpy’s Great Alaskan Alehouse every Saturday this month through the first Saturday in March.
Like many people traveling (or trying to travel) to/from Juneau during the last couple weeks, I got fogged in. By the time I knew that my flight home was cancelled, there were no flights available the next day, giving me a mini-vacay in Alaska’s capitol city. I have to admit, I was pretty excited about the chance to explore!
