The Blue Hornets suit up for a ska-tastic EP release party

Formed after a Giant Steps reunion in 2009—and subsequent nostalgic feelings about playing rocksteady and reggae music—The Blue Hornets hasn’t taken long to become a favorite local band. The nine-member supergroup releases “Selekta EP” on Friday at Launchpad. The Alibi’s Jessica Cassyle Carr spoke with Blue Hornets guitarist and vocalist Otto Barthel about Jamaican genres, the mission of the band’s first album and ska’s fourth wave.
