I'm going to see the Aquabats in November


They are going to be with Suburban Legends, which would be awesome, if they would play more of their old poo poo

I'd go see Suburban Legends just for the Disney singalong at the end

First time I saw them (back when they were good ) they played Under The Sea. It was awesome.

They really haven't been the same since Tim left the band. I mean I like Vince and all, but that's when they started doing all of the pop/disco stuff. I liked Dance Like Nobody's Watching (except the abomination slow version of Bright Spring Morning) but I was really disappointed at Infectious. I've heard that the Let's Be Friends album is bringing back some old styles but I haven't heard it yet except for one song they played when they were with LTJ and Goldfinger, but it didn't sound bad IIRC.

I am pumped for RBF and Streetlight coming to NYC in January. I also like the idea of an RBF cover album because they pretty much do the best covers ever. They're the only band I can think of that when they do a cover, it's almost as good, if not better than, the original. Their version of Hungry Like The Wolf rocks my socks off every time.


The show I'm a little more pumped to see, only because I view it as more of a "might not get another chance" deal instead of a "oh man this concert is going to blow my mind" thing:

In case anyone wasn't aware THE MOTHERFUCKING AQUABATS are coming to BB King's, down the block from Times Square, on November 20th. Any New Yorkers who missed them when they came a while back (me ), here's that chance you never thought was going to come again. Oh man, I can not wait.

I saw The Aquabats/Suburban Legends tonight and I can say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it was the single greatest experience of my life.

The first band that opened was...well..weird but awesome.

Suburban Legends were great, they had lots of energy and played mostly their older stuff which was what I was hoping for. The two or three newer songs they played actually weren't that bad so I was happy.

The Aquabats are loving amazing and are the best live band ever, ever, ever, ever. That's all I can really say. If you haven't seen them yet, I have no idea what you're doing with your loving life.

Where were you? I was against the rail up top near the bar. I was the only one who was jumping and dancing when they called out all the people up there for just standing around not doing much.

A bit of news I just discovered which I thought was awesome:

Remember the RBF album that's scheduled to come out in January and be all cover songs? One of the songs they're covering? VERONICA SAWYER BY EDNA'S GOLDFISH.

Holy gently caress, I can't wait to hear this.


e: Track listing:

quote:

1. "Nothin' But a Good Time" (Poison)
2. "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" (Slade)
3. "Veronica Sawyer" (Edna's Goldfish)
4. "Authority Song" (John Mellencamp)
5. "Brown Eyed Girl" (Van Morrison)
6. "The Long Run" (The Eagles)
7. "Won't Back Down" (Tom Petty)
8. "Keep a Cool Head" (Desmond Dekker)
9. "Monkey Man" (Toots and the Maytals)
10. "Talk Dirty to Me" (Poison)

I'm also pretty excited for the Poison songs and Won't Back Down. Monkey Man isn't bad either http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSuEMJ_48YE

When I saw them at Skanksgiving they didn't play a single ASOB song and I doubt they ever will again.

That isn't really the point although it is unfortunate.

Quick question, I need some help in hating on a band; Mysterious Aftertaste might know this answer.

I saw Streetlight last time they played at Starland Ballroom and one of their openers was this atrocious ska band that had choreographed dance moves and poo poo. What was the name of the band?

Check out some or their songs from their pre-Dance Like Nobody's Watching albums. They were a pretty good ska band just with a goofy gimmick.

Holy poo poo that's by far the best Warped Tour lineup in a long time. I thought '05 was good, Jesus.


e: Actually, looking at it on the whole, '05 was probably still better but as far as representing the ska crowd this is the best lineup since like the 90s

Do or Die is the best Dropkick Murphys album, McColgan's frog voice or not.




Also, Street Dogs are awesome too and up until recently their drummer was Joe Sirois and that's all you really need.

For me it's: Do or Die > Sing Loud, Sing Proud / Blackout > The Meanest of Times > A Warrior's Code

So who's listened to the new Reel Big Fish yet? I find it amusing that they did Brown Eyed Girl, considering they've been credited with that ska version since the Kazaa days.

I had no idea it was out already. I was under the impression that it wasn't coming out until later in the month. I'm going to get it ASAP, I've been really excited to hear it.

I just got the whole thing and I'm listening to it now. Nothin' but a Good Time is pretty good so far.



e: Veronica Sawyer is okay but nowhere close to the original



e2: Brown Eyed Girl is probably the best version ever, it's got a nice reggae funk to it, but it's still faster and upbeat. I really like how they did it.



vvvv I cannot reveal that information at this point in time

I was pretty let down by the cover of Talk Dirty To Me. The Regatta 69 version is so much better.

I thought they took the song in an interesting direction and it wasn't bad, it just wasn't what I was expecting.


I was disappointed by it, but all in all it was pretty good.

I think all of their albums are good vv


I like RBF because even when they make generic songs, you know that just want to have fun and isn't that really what ska is all about? I thought Monkeys wasn't that great of an album but it's apparent that they were starting to have more fun again and I'm cool with that


Party Down and Everybody's Drunk are evidence of this I think, especially the Party Down video.



Then again though, those two songs, Cannibal, and the re-makes from Everything Sucks were the only good songs on the album

Life of the Party by The Planet Smashers, The Resignation by RX Bandits

These are really loving good.

I like Before You Knew Better by Edna's Goldfish , The Fury of the Aquabats by The Aquabats (obviously), and there HAS to be a Bosstones album on this list but there are like 3 I can't choose between.


Also Upbeats & Beatdowns by Five Irony Frenzy is like 75% one of my favorites but there are a few songs that keep it off the list for me.

I really don't want to add them to the list but pretty much every Less Than Jake album Anthem and before except for Losers, Kings... (I count B is for B Sides in this as well) and Turn the Radio Off be Reel Big Fish are really good.



I think that Rump Shaker by Suburban Legends is really good. Not on this level of good, but I think a lot of people don't like them because of their disco-ness now and their dancing gimmick so they write this album off.

9 shows in 8 states last July with Dropkick Murphys was pretty good for a band that hadn't done anything in a few years. Also, playing the first Throwdown in forever was a really good start. Wait for them to get their legs back under them, they've got an album set to come out this year and I'm sure they'll hit the road when they figure out a release date.

In my opinion Three Cheers For Disappointment is definitely the best Jeff Rosenstock related album ever but BtMI!'s overall body of work is way better than ASoB's.


It would be a lot closer for me if the earlier ASoB albums had better production. Some great songs but it's hard to listen to sometimes.

- I really want to see Edna's Goldfish. I almost went to their last reunion back in like early 2001, and I really regret not going. But I really don't want to drive all the way up there from the Philly area for 30 minutes of one band and a day full of crap.

Yeah, I really want to see them but it's really hard to justify $50 to watch a half-hour set. Third Eye Blind being there is sort of convincing me towards going but I know one band will play at 1 and the other will be at 7 and I'll end up having to sit around for 6 hours holding my dick.
