Badfish – A Tribute To Sublime
Since the untimely death of Sublime’s lead singer, Bradley Nowell, in 1996, fans have flocked to Badfish’s shows to hear faithful live renditions of tracks from the ska-punk legends’ three-album catalog. The group has mastered Sublime’s good-time essence, upstroke guitar, and copious genre-bending, creating a fan base that fills arenas while scoring praise from Spin and Rolling Stone, who heralded them as “one of the most successful tribute bands out there.” Even Sublime’s drummer, Bud Gaugh is a fan—his band Del Mar has opened for Badfish twice and he’s even played with the tribute group himself. <p>
Trapt Featuring The Cringe
Formed in 1997, Trapt caught fire like love notes from exes with its 2002 self-titled major-label debut, which earned platinum status behind the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart-topper “Headstrong.” The wide-spread success of the lead single exposed audiences to the band’s melodic angst, built upon Peter Charell’s groove-tilling bass lines, Robb Torres’s swirling, ambulant guitars, and Brown’s passionate roar. That cathartic anthem for the jilted led to more hit singles, such as “Still Frame” and “Echo,” and laid the groundwork for later hit albums. On Reborn, Trapt’s sixth studio album, the band boldly experiments with synths, delay, and reverb to add extra menace and atmosphere to their core sound. Live, they please die-hard fans with a mix of greatest hits and newly poisoned valentines, which its members perform with breakneck energy as they carry on their lifelong vendetta against Cupid. <p>
