Think Americana, Phish and Country kinda rolled into one. Portland Press Herald described Skosh as playing, ''Phish-inspired tunes laced with the eclecticism that made rockers Ween famous in the 1990s''. Skosh has a reputation for tight, well rehearsed covers and originals and energetic live jams and occasionally humorous performances. $20 cover at the door or show your season pass and come on in for free!
