Badfish a Tribute to Sublime - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Badfish a Tribute to Sublime
Sublime was arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to
emerge from any scene, anywhere, but ended with the untimely death of lead
singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in 1996. But encompassing the sense of
place and purpose long associated with Sublime's music, Badfish, a tribute to
Sublime has continued to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for quite
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.
Formed in 2001, Badfish has become one of the biggest club and theater acts in the
Northeast and Midwest. Consistently selling out many shows at some of the most
prominent venues throughout the country, promoters continue to be in awe that a
tribute band is turning several hundred fans away from the doors each night.
Badfish is rivaling the biggest tributes in the music business including Dark Star
Orchestra and Super Diamond.
Over the last few years, some of the venues Badfish has sold out include Avalon
(Boston, MA), House of Blues (Chicago, Atlantic City, and Las Vegas), Lincoln
Theater (Raleigh, NC), Lupo's (Providence, RI), Opera House (Toronto, ON),
Revolution (Fort Lauderdale, FL), Starland Ballroom (Sayerville, NJ) and many
Badfish make 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. The attitude
of Sublime cannot be faked, so Badfish doesn't try – its own tribute is one that
works. What hits everyone the most is the heart that these four musicians pour into
their show. These technically skilled players sound just like Sublime, and some fans
say that seeing Badfish live is the most fun they've ever had at a show.
