Can't We All Just Get Along?

Even though the first lyrics in this song are "April 26th, 1992" the actual title and anniversary of the Rodney King riots is today, April 29, 1992. On marginally related note, I always know Spring is here when Sublime becomes a viable music decision again. No one likes to listen to a trio of Shirtless Long Beach Brosefs in the middle of the Winter, but when that sun is out and women start dressing pretty again, people are outside walking their dogs and eating and drinking at streetside cafes, you can find me listening to Robbin the Hood or 40 oz to Freedom.

Eric, Bud, Bradley and Lou-Dog (The Dalmation) are were Sublime

For me as well as many of my peers, the California trio that seems to be a cross between Toots and the Maytals and MC5 really strikes a chord with me since they are an authentic alternative 90s band, fusing everything from Pre-Emo indie Punk to soul stirring acoustic jams to Old School Roots Reggae.

Update: During writing this post, I just discovered that Sublime (Now legally named "Sublime With Rome) is Reuniting (Obviously sans Bradley, R.I.P.) and playing here in NYC THIS WEEKEND. Tickets are already sold out for their back to back nights at Roseland Ballroom... Why was I not informed? Oh Craigslist, here we go...
