the-heat-machineIf you know the song and  band the title comes from*, there is only one place you should be tonight: The Outland. Springfield gets a long-awaited ska fix tonight with a show by Lincoln, Nebraska’s The Heat Machine, along with local genre torch carriers The Magnificents! and My Wasted Life. Show starts at the customary 10-10:30 p.m.

For Springfield old-schoolers, this show is a must. Ska and punk shows (along with the ever-present jam bands) were a driving force in the music scene in the early and mid-’90s. Thanks to bands like the ones playing tonight, local ska still lives, too. Time to kick it old school; if we don’t see some skanking at the front of the room tonight, we will be severely disappointed.
