LESS THAN JAKE
Ventura Theatre, Ventura, CA, 03/24/99

Reviewed by Pud

Chris, Roger, Derron, Buddy, Pete and Vinnie were in party mode at the Majestic Ventura Theater this evening as Less Than Jake made a full house of the younger generation dance and "skank" to a plethora of "pop" ska tunes. The atmosphere was that of a pep rally when you are just plain giddy to be out of class for awhile. This middle-of-the-week Wednesday night show proved that kids can still get out of doing homework and party with a very good "party" band. The best songs of the evening were "Losing Streak," "Losers," "Hello Rockview" and the ultimate tribute song "Pezcore." Less Than Jake is a very good band to down "adult" beverages to, and being as I was the only "adult" at the show, that meant I had the bar to myself. For this reason alone, I give the band's live performance a big thumbs up!
