The Specials at Club Nokia

From a politically volatile offshoot of reggae to a maligned ‘90s punchline, the genre of ska has seen high and lows. Lately, it’s been riding another wave of goodwill, and there’s no better time for the iconic group the Specials — who cemented the two-tone aesthetic — to reunite. They’re playing Coachella, but dust off your porkpie hat and catch this preview set. Club Nokia, 800 W. Olympic Blvd. L.A. 8:30 p.m. Thursday. $35. https://www.clubnokia.com
