Hollie Garraway - 28 August 2011

8/10

As the soundtrack for classic 90's American comedy 'Clueless', The Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ music defined a decade and today still sounds as familiar and uplifting as ever.

Tonight they prove that ska core isn't dead with everyone skanking out and shouting the lyrics back to the band during 'The Impression That I Get' and 'Where did you go?'.

Suited and booted in matching checkered suits, the group relentlessly dance and thank the gleeful hoard for allowing them to be headliners on the Lock Up bill. Dicky Barrett proves also what a fine frontman he is as he bounds across the stage throughout.
