Sublime, what with its tragically curtailed output of laid-back, genre-mashing pop hits, remains one of the most mythical bands of the late '90s. Even though it's been more than 15 years since the band's late singer, Bradley Nowell, died of an overdose, the group's best reggae/punk/hip-hop songs still sound fresh, especially in beachy areas like South Florida. That's one reason local fans of the band can expect a yearly visit from Badfish, the country's top Sublime tribute act. Although most tribute acts embarrass themselves and the audience with costumes and posturing, Badfish has taken a different tack since forming in 2001. The group performs Sublime's music but doesn't attempt to role-play the band members themselves, stressing instead that they focus on the "spirit" of the original group. In an interesting twist, the members of Badfish also essentially open for themselves, playing a warm-up set of similarly vibed originals under the name Scotty Don't.
