It’s one thing to sell out a venue the size of the Knitting Factory, but it’s another selling out two nights in a row, and that’s just what Black Happy has done. The beloved ska-grunge band, which formed in Coeur d’Alene in the early ’90s and broke up after only a few years, has played a handful of gigs since officially reuniting in 2010, and every one has been a convergence of Gen Xers looking to unleash their inner punk kid. And once they’ve finished their stint at the Knit, they’re heading to another sold-out show in Seattle. People are obviously excited to skank like it’s 1994 again.
