After his long running Wave Not Wave party came to an end last month, eclectic local tastemaker and DJ Mario Muse is starting up a new venture playing ska, mod and Northern soul at RUDE, starting this Wednesday, June 6 at Madrone.

This mix of old school rocksteady and reggae tunes sets the tone for the monthly RUDE where throwback favorites will keep the dancefloor rockin to a new, unique beat. Stream his inspiration for the party, the “Spirit of ’68” mix, below.
