Posted in movies | music | tour dates on June 28, 2012


As previously posted and tweeted earlier today, the BAM-sponsored, weekly free series of lunchtime live music outside downtown Brooklyn office complex Metrotech - always well curated, continues this afternoon (6/28), somewhat hilariously with a performance by ska-punk legends Fishbone (if you're close by, it's time to take your lunch break!).

The band is currently on a tour that also brings then Buffalo, Toronto and Montreal this weekend. They're back in NYC by July 8th to play two shows at Brooklyn Bowl - an early family show and a late gig with Paranoid Social Club. The late show is part of the CBGB Festival which is also hosting a screening of documentary "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone" at Anthology Film Archives (individual tickets are on sale).

Fishbone are also on the lineups of Riot Fest Chicago and Bumbershoot this year, and have a lot of other dates scheduled too. They're all listed below...

Love old school Fishbone but their recent Bamboozle gig was a letdown....

these lunchtime shows are annoying. Unless you happen to work right in the immediate vicinity, there is no way you can make it to the show see the show and return to work in time in a normal lunch hour. Even if you work near there, it's difficult. Why not just do these shows at night after work?

I would be totally into this free show, if I didn't have to work, and I was close to Metrotech, and I had even a particle of interest in Fishbone, and I was a hipster twat, and my ass was still sore from last night.

For those of you whining about missing this show at Metrotech, you could just cough up the $5 to see the band next week.
