Badfish, A Tribute to Sublime

Del Mar, featuring Bud Gaugh from Sublime, will be co-headlining the show.

It's hard to look back at the 1990s and not remember at least one of Sublime's songs. The band gained great success in 1996 outside of Long Beach, Calif., where they started, with their self-titled third album release. Ironically, the release came months after lead singer and guitar player, Bradley Nowell, died of a heroin overdose on May 25.

Nowell's death resulted in the breakup of the band, which consisted of two other members. In 2001, at the University of Rhode Island, Badfish formed and started playing Sublime songs locally. Named after a song on Sublime's album "40 Oz. to Freedom," the band became popular in their own right.

The members of Badfish also perform in a non-tribute band known as Scotty Don't, which will also perform at the House of Blues.

Del Mar, Sublime's former drummer Floyd "Bud" Gaugh's new band, will also take the stage.

It's an all ages show but anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, at least 18, with valid identification. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.
