Reel Big Fish/Anti-Flag/Ballyhoo!/Direct Hit

When: Tue., Jan. 10, 8 p.m. 2017

One of the great titans of ska, Reel Big Fish is a cultural touchstone in some niche sense of the word. The only remaining founding member is frontman Aaron Barrett, and he still commands an energetic presence at RBF shows. This is skanking music, and couldn’t we all use of that right now? Take a spin through any number of Reel Big Fish’s excellent albums; we recommend the super intense Why Do They Rock So Hard?. The band’s most recent album, Candy Coated Fury, sort of picks up where the earlier stuff left off: Angst-ridden hate anthems with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Sounds like the soundtrack to a weird and alarming country! (Sandy)
