A rare US appearance by legendary British ska revival band The Selecter with original members "Queen of Ska" Pauline Black and Gaps Hendrickson! The 2 Tone group has been riding a wave of popular and critical acclaim in the wake of their brilliant new albums Made in Britain (2011), and String Theory (2013), and were a highlight at this year's Coachella Festival.

Cincinnati's acclaimed reggae/ska band The Pinstripes open, making a quick return to The Cedar after wowing the capacity audience at Cat Empire. DJ Jake Rudh will spin some tunes before and between sets.

This summer, keep your cool inside at the newly air-conditioned Cedar!
