Four-piece band, The Skints, from East London plays reggae and dub from their second album Part & Parcel. The band's first album was Live, Breathe, Build, Believe, which, blending the boundaries between reggae and punk, became an underground hit. With two albums under their belt, this gig is part of a long-awaited tour throughout the UK.

Taking place at Scala, the gig will be in central London and close to a number of hotels. If you're looking for somewhere to stay, check out our London Hotels page for all the best deals at hotels near Scala.

 

About Scala

Housed inside the old King's Cross Cinema, the Scala might be a bit tattered around the edges but this only adds to its battered charm. The venue welcomed legends like Iggy Pop during the 70s, but didn't become a purely music venue until 1993. More about Scala
