Pick it Up! – Ska in the 90s Pity Party Film Club

ska in the 90s

CCA Friday 12 July, 2019

Pity Party Film Club presents the first ever UK screening of Pick It Up!, a new documentary about the rise of ska music in the 1990s, often referred to as ska’s third wave, following the two-tone invasion of 1980s.

Narrated by Tim Armstrong (Operation Ivy / Rancid) and featuring interviews with members of No Doubt, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, to name just a few, Pick it Up! documents of one of the biggest success stories of 90s DIY music. This much-anticipated film tells of the story of how the grass roots ska movement grew from basements and garages all over America and, for a brief and magical time, took over the world.
