Creative Concerts is excited to help bring live music back to Baldwinsville this summer, presenting Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime on Friday, Aug. 13 at Paper Mill Island. This is a general admission show and all ages are welcome. Tickets are on sale now at CCTix.com, at $20 in advance and $25 day of show.
Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime – The phenomenon known as Sublime, one of the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic bands to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996.
Encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime’s essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish makes its mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.
Doors open at 6 p.m. with music starting at 7 p.m. This is a rain or shine event.
While there is no public parking on Paper Mill Island, there is plenty of parking within walking distance. Public parking is available near the intersection of Oswego Street and E Genesee Street. Once you are parked the venue is a quick walk across the bridge.
