CROATIAN CULTURAL CENTRE

DOORS 6:00 PM SHOW 7:00 PM

**ALL-AGES SHOW**

Leave it to Reel Big Fish to celebrate ten years in the music biz with an album called We're Not Happy 'til Your Not Happy. Not only that, but songs include hilarious and industry-mocking tunes like "Don't Start a Band," "One Hit Wonderful" and "Last Show."

Still, Reel Big Fish don't have anything to complain about, and the SoCal ska act know it. Countless tours, five studio albums and two stints on the Warped Tour have catapulted the band into the hearts and minds of hi-energy music fans all over North American and the U.K.

Meanwhile, on the new album, the group's cheeky sense of humour extends to inspired covers of Morrissey's "We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful" and a reggaefied version of Tracy Chapman's "Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution," as well as Social Distortion's "Story of My Life." These tunes can only add to the group's performances, which are already venerated and loved by audiences for their slapstick humour, witty asides, jumpy energy and communal feeling.

In truth, Reel Big Fish are only happy when their fans are happy, and the new album and tour will make for some very happy people indeed.

Don't miss Reel Big Fish when they perform live at the Croatian Cultural Centre on Friday, July 29th with special guests El Pus, Punchline, Zolof and The Rock and Roll Destroyer.

Like most of their peers, the band was distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. The group cultivated... more info
