When the producers of a documentary on 90s-era ska went to Kickstarter to look for funding, they had no idea that they’d read their $40,000 target in less than a week. Money came in from 31 different countries.
Now with donations approaching $120,000, they have enough cash to get this thing into full-scale production. Once complete, we’ll see interviews with No Doubt, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, the Pietasters, Fishbone, Save Ferris, Let’s Go Bowling, Dance Hall Crashers, the Specials, Mustard Plug, the Toasters, Skankin’ Pickle, Hepcat, the Slackers, Kemuri, Blink 182/the Aquabats, the Hippos, The Skatalites, and Sublime.
The projected release date for Pick It Up: Ska in the 90s is next April. Here’s a trailer.
