Badfish’s added bonus: Their tickets are about half the price.
Sublime’s music was fun Ska Punk, but what set them apart was Nowell’s voice and mostly irreverent lyrics. The band’s songs, from “40 Ounces to Freedom” to “What I Got,” told stories of middle and lower-class life in Los Angeles. Upon closer look, you can even hear foreshadowing of Nowell’s overdose.
Those lyrics won’t change just because the singer is different or the backing band is new. When you’re only going to a concert to see a reasonable facsimile, does it really matter than the band members may have once performed with Bradley Nowell? Probably not.
