I want to see RBF because I loved them when I was 14 and it would bring back tons o' memories.

Kinda like when I saw Anti-Flag.
#12
I realize that RBF have tons and tons of songs that are good, but not popular.

It's one of those bands that the popular songs stick out, and you forget the rest. Skews the perception.

Ok, so I decided to keep this thread alive. I went to see Streetlight Manifesto last night, supporting Reel Big Fish. I had doubts about Reel Big Fish even though I knew they had a big fanbase. I had a few complains about the gig overall, and I just felt like posting. A) The openign band Sonic Boom 6 got about 20 minutes stage time which was disappointing in itself as they are a local band and clearly there were quite a few people that were there to see them. B) Streetlight manifesto got just over half an hour (no particular problem with this by itself). C) RBF got 1 hour and half, after watching them play I was saddened that the crowd happened to be full of assholes, and that RBF were a pretty ****ty band if I'm honest. How streetlight manifesto weren't headlining was absurd imo. They involved the crowd more, they had more energy and they hardly had any stage time. Reel Big Fish's guitar player was pretty decent but apart from that the band sucked. I suppose I don't have too much of a beef, except that I don't understand how RBF were headlining even though they are popular. I thought Streetlight should have got waay more stage time, if not headlining.

they where headlining because they are way more popular over all, skill doesnt have much to do with it. Streetlight may be more popular in the ska scene itself but Reel Big Fish has a much larger fan base in other "scenes" so when they come to town they bring alot more people than just the ska kids

Also, the fact that it was called The Monkeys For Nothing tour may have had something to do with it.

Well, it's last time i'm having anything to do with RBF. They sucked and streetlight are way better.

I went last night. Streetlight were awesome and owned the show.
I didn't watch RBF, I hung out with Streetlight and the Boom instead, because I'm just cool like that.
#19
^I'm going to that tour on Saturday, looking forward to it. Would it be too fanboyish to want a picture with streetlight?

Haha. Probably, but f*ck it, do it anyway. They're all dead nice guys, they won't object at all. You won't get a shot at Tomas though, just so you know though! He's very elusive.

So I was at Reel Big Fish last night, so I thought I'd tell you what I thought of it. First of all, Sonic Boom Six really surprised me. I'd been on their myspace and hadn't liked their songs that much, but when they played live they were amazing. Despite there only being a handful of people watching them they were still having fun and jumping around and stuff which was cool, I bought their Cd at the end.

Everyone went mad when Streetlight played, it was really intense. I got stuck with a pit to my back right when they started so I kept get forced into the person in front, I'm asthmatic so I was too out of breath to sing or anything.

Reel Big Fish's set was a lot more laid back, you could actually stop and dance rather than get shoved around all the time. Reel Big Fish were better live than I expected, really fun, really kiddy and people just had a good time. Even the songs I didn't like off the albums I enjoyed live. Well, that's my two cents.

I went to their concert in Brussels and my friend got the sheet with the playlist on, I'll ask him when I see him
RBF ruuuuulez !!!! (srry, had to get it out)
#23
SB6 I didn't like from their Myspace or live, but I'm starting to like them now.
Streetlight stole the show in my opinion, absolutely amazing.
RBF were alright, but just something about them seemed too sort of 'going through the motions' for me :/

True man, Streetlight was great... it was too short
#25
I went to the RBF gig in Exeter with a sense of apprehension, given the mixed reviews in this thread. I, however, thoroughly enjoyed the show RBF set.

SB6 were really energetic and, as support bands go, they were one of the better ones I've seen at getting the crowd pumped. Streetlight blew me away and hearing "Here's To Life" performed live really defined their set for me. Where can I get a copy of their newest album??

I think when you hear Monkeys For Nothin', you can tell that the band are generally happier. When you see them live, though, it REALLY shows. Aaron was smiling a lot and seemed very energetic and John had the crowd standing at the left of the stage in the palm of his hand. They played a really good mix of new and old material and were really good with the crowd. Whether you love the band or are lukewarm towards them, I really recommend that you go see them because they put on a really fun show.

Also, having hung out with the band afterwards (I know this is a "pics or it didn't happen" moment, so if you want I'll upload pics on Tuesday when my friend gets around to whacking them on her PC) I can safely say that you won't meet a nicer bunch of people than the RBF guys. Aaron was incredibly cool with the younger kids who approached him and the band seemed to really appreciate the support that they got.

Peace

Oh don't get me wrong, RBF were definitely fun. Just that something about it seemed slightly forced, imo.

was still a very fun night
