Growing up is hard to do, and harder still for ska bands. Scoring a major-label deal amid the fleeting mid-'90s ska-boom, Gainesville, Fla., band Less Than Jake earned their taste of fame on the strength of hyperactive pop songs such as "Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts" and "Sugar in Your Gas Tank," as well as the comfort with which they lined up next to peers such as No Doubt, Sublime and Reel Big Fish. Subsequent decades haven't been as friendly to ska, leaving Less Than Jake to play smaller rooms as they shifted more toward pop and punk. Last year's Greetings & Salutations From Less Than Jake returned them to their peak-era ska-punk sound. Joining them on this tour are Connecticut band Hostage Calm and Buffalo punkers Pentimento. Durham trio Almost People opens. —Bryan C. Reed
