The Skatalites (+ Red Soul Community) in Granada: May 10th Friday 10pm. Sala El Tren, 136 Carretera de Malaga, Granada.
Few bands are celebrating their 55-year career. And even less they do it by giving a hundred concerts around the planet every year. If we add to this the power to boast of being the founding fathers of a whole genre, we have one: The Skatalites. Under the slogan “Still rough and tough” we face this “55th Anniversary Tour” the legendary Jamaican formation, led by Doreen Shaffer, one of its founders. They gave the kick-off at a special concert with Julian Marley at the Jamming Festival in Bogotá, which has followed a full house at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York. Now the tour continues throughout the American continent, until in May they land in Europe. The first dates on the peninsula will be on May 8 at the Sala Apolo in Barcelona, ​​on May 9 at the Sala MON in Madrid and, last minute surprise, on May 10 at the Sala El Tren de Granada. But not only are they traveling the planet, they are also working on a new album, the thirty-first of their career, and that will be released before the end of the year. After all this, it is quite clear that ska is beneficial for health. Schedule your appointment with the specialists. Event Link

DoctorLaptop Tech Tip: Firefox User Alert!
A recent Firefox update has disabled most browser add-ons and extensions for many users. In the blink of an eye I lost uBlock, Ghostery, video downloader pro, Cyberghost VPN, tab auto reloader and a cryptocoin ticker! A message pops up saying the add-ons or extensions are incomptible and need to be uninstalled and reinstalled. DO NOT DO THAT! Just wait for the next Firefox update and your add-ons and extensions will go back to normal, or so promises Firefox Support who received so many complaints over the weekend they had to block their support site from accepting new help requests.
