Reel Big Fish Brings Life Sucks...Let's
Dance! Tour To Buffalo

It had been a while since I had seen Reel Big Fish perform but
they put on amazing and fun set as usual!
The Life Sucks…Let’s
Dance! Winter Tour
kicked off on February 26th in Savannah,
Georgia before making its way up the east coast and arriving in
Buffalo, New York on a very cold and rainy Tuesday evening.  The
weather did not put a damper on what the bands had in store for
their fans that night and the venue was packed to the brim full of
fans old and new rocking out to their favourite ska bands.

Opening the show was a newer sextet band called
Keep Flying who
put on one hell of a set and were great at getting the crowd all riled
up before
Big D and the Kids Table and headliners Reel Big Fish
were to take the stage. They had a very energetic set and the
audience really enjoyed their performance! A short bit after the
band
Keep Flying finished their set and a quick stage set up swap
out the lights dimmed and "It's Tricky" started playing over the PA
system as
Big D and the Kids Table took the stage. The band
opened their set with "Steady Riot", "Noise Complaint" and "Souped
Up Vinyl" from their album
Strictly Rude. As the band performed
songs like "Shining On", "My Girlfriend's On Drugs", "Hell On Earth"
and an epic cover of
Operation Ivy's song "Yellin' In My Ear" while
the crowd went nuts along with the band! After putting on an
amazing set the band finished up with their single "LAX" before
thanking the crowd and exiting the stage.

Around 10:00pm
Reel Big Fish walked out on stage and started
playing The
Forces Of Evil’s “Ska Show” and follows it with
“Trendy” and “I Want Your Girlfriend To Be My Girlfriend Too”. The
band performed their hit singles “Sell Out” and “She Has A
Girlfriend Now” as well as crowd favourites “Everyone Else Is An
Asshole”, “Another F.U. Song” and their cover of
Ah-Ha’s “Take On
Me”. Ending their set with an encore of “Pissed Off”, “Everything
Sucks” and their classic drinking song “Beer”. Brian Robertson,
from
Suburban Legends, joined the band in mid-2019 when
trombonist Billy Kottage departed from the band. Everyone who
came out for the show had a great night skanking to their favourite
classic songs and new songs from
Reel Big Fish, who never fail to
disappoint!
