It really is amazing, isn't it?
The content itself is incredible, too - the winner of Woodbridge Idol, sponsored by Sansone's Auto Mall and ShopRite, etc.

Why must you make fun? That's like the first competition I've ever won in my life.


What did I say: "incredible," "amazing," and "etc."
Don't be so paranoid, Emma!  We're all real proud of ya.
(though next year I'm gonna see to it they don't let any more damn Cannukians in the contest)

Now write me a receipt so I can tip on outta here...

Cover bands bring in the loot.

Can you imagine all the 35 year old dudes with thinning, bleached hair and scarred-over nose ring holes that turn up for a Sublime cover band? All of them pumping their tribally tattooed arms to "Santeria"...

I admire those whose love will go on.

They play Toad's Place all the time.  So does Badfish- tribute to Sublime.

Does sublime really need a tribute band?
Not to seem insensitive, but are there better bands out there deserving tribute... maybe Bad Company?

A promoter friend of mine in Providence tells me that Bad Fish draws twice as many people as the band consisting of all the actual members of Sublime except the guy who died (I can't remember their name).
???

I can also attest to this.  The 'dude' behind me on the Commuter Rail into Providence unsuccessfully asked the girl across the aisle out to a Badfish show... He talked about them like they were a really big deal.
