Ska, Robots, and a Promise for More Posts!

We're still here!  We apologize to all our Vermodernist readers for our many-month lapse in posting, but we're back just in time for summer.

To kick off summer and our rebirth of posts, we'd like to pass along some happenings that you may be interested in.

First off, the Skatalites are coming!  While the lineup of this Jamaican band credited as being the founders of ska has changed over the years, the Skatalites are still a force to be reckoned with and worth a night out to see.  Here's a little "Guns of Navarone" to get you in the mood, or at least stuck in your head.

The Skatalites will be playing at Higher Ground on Friday, June 22nd with doors opening at 8:30.  We'll be there and hope to see you too!

Another event we're eager to check out is the upcoming exhibit Time Machines: Robots, Rockets, and Steampunk opening this Saturday June 16th and running through October 28th in the Webb Gallery at The Shelburne Museum.

According to the Shelburne Museum Web site "The exhibit includes toys and textiles, decorative, graphic and fine art representing the Golden Age of sci-fi – the 1930s-1950s – as well as work by contemporary artists and designers."

We've dug up this little gem to get you in the mood for the exhibit:

We hope your kick off summer with a bang and we look forward to putting up some more posts in the coming weeks!
