Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime at The Mercury Ballroom
Sublime blends a mixture of rock, rap, punk, and hip-hop funk with doses of ska, rock steady, dancehall, and every other pungent flavor of reggae to form a beautiful and powerful new blend of street sounds and party music. Sublime in it's true form may not still perform, however, you can still experience the bandall over again with BADFISH at Mercury Ballroom on Wednesday, February 3, presentedby 93.1 The Fox!
The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of leadsinger, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. Encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time.
What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime’s essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish makes their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does!
