Talk about musical necromancy, The English Beat are back! This time, though, the zombies aren’t back to eat brains or anything; it’s all about charity. Whether you like ska or not you have to admit it’s awesome to have such an important band back. Their influential ska sound guarantees a good time and best of all it goes to a worthy cause. All proceeds from Dave Wakeling’s Love You Give single go to various autism charities. Come out on Dec. 14 to Maxwell’s in Hoboken. All Ages. Doors 9 p.m. $25.
