Sublime Plays With New Singer
According to Bud Gaugh's Del Mar MySpace page, legendary SoCal band Sublime reunited, playing their first gig under the name since May 25, 1996. Original Sublime founders Gaugh (drums) and Eric Wilson (bass) took the stage with guitarist/vocalist Rome replacing the late Bradley Nowell. The show went down last Saturday, February 28 at Cantina Los Hombres in Sparks, Nevada.
The MySpace page states:
So Del Mar played the gig at Cantina last night in Reno, it was packed and amazing. What really fucking killed it was SUBLIME reuniting and playing with new singer, Rome. We're fucking stoked for Bud, Eric, and Rome - Bud's still playing with Del Mar, and Sublime doesn't have any firm tour plans or anything YET, but we'll keep you posted on their progress.
ConsequenceOfSound.net is also reporting on this show, with one user saying:
I was there last night. It was Eric, Bud, & Rome. You can never replace Brad.. but it was a bad-ass show!!! Rome has a great voice, guitar skills, and killer energy. It does more justice to the music to play it live then to let it rest forever only on recordings!! The crowd was thirsty for this show and the energy was surreal!! They dedicated the set to Brad & said it was the first time they had played those songs live in about 15 years! They played a new song too which sounded pretty bad ass!
Here are two videos from the show. The sound quality is no good, but you get the vibe.
