Badfish, a tribute to Sublime
A Sublime cover band might sounds like a really bad idea, but these guys get it right. Instead of merely duplicating the sound of the ill-fated group, Badfish actually captures their essence, even 10 years later. Apparently their following is huge too, with venues booking this phenomenon selling out regularly.
Still skeptical? Listen to Badfish on their website.

This is an unbelievable Swiss watch of a movie – Hitchcock at his best. See Ingrid Bergman, the fallen woman whose beauty and reputation inspire caddish spy Clark Gable to use her as chum in the water to draw in Nazis so he can spy on them in post-war Rio de Janeiro. See Bergman gladly swap sex for secrets (all delivered with sweet ’40s innuendo, of course) because she really loves Clark. See her reputation cut both ways – don’t you hate that? – when Clark Gable decides she’s a floozy after all and almost lets her get killed. Notorious also features some of Hitchcock’s most sadistic bits of suspense. Love it.

Count Dracula’s Weed Smuggling Jam Engine
This band is amazing, and not just because of their name. When they start playing, you’ll probably think, “Awww, what pretty piano-ing” – but wait until lead singer Smokey Farris opens his mouth. Lyrics like “‘For this love, I’d shave my balls,’ cries Jesus” make Count Dracula’s Weed Smuggling Jam Engine one band you’ll be talking about long after the show’s over.
