WATCH: A Scene From Brooklyn Rocksteady


Brookyln Rocksteady was the one act of Skate & Surf I wanted to see that I did not get to see. A feature length documentary on ska and rocksteady in Brooklyn? I was stoked. But alas, I did not get to see it, and nor did anyone else at Skate & Surf due to as-of-yet unknown reasons. We’ll have an interview with its creator, Samuel Gursky, coming soon; perhaps we’ll find out what happened there.

That said, Samuel Gursky has released a scene from the film in place of a movie trailer. The film is now set to premier Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19 in Brooklyn with a public release on Tuesday, July 23; more information can be found at their official website,  You can watch the six minute scene here after the jump.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you’ve ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we’ve cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
