40 oz. to Freedom Critics’ Pick

Published in Blog Archive, City Pages. Tags: .

Though it might be a little much to expect any surprise guests to show up (as happened at the band’s recent Hollywood show, where Angelo Moore of Fishbone joined the band for “Date Rape”), it wouldn’t be unreasonable to hope to see a few shots of Jäger to be downed, or a hell of a show from what is arguably the world’s greatest Sublime tribute band, 40 oz. to Freedom. Formed in 2007, the quartet consists of some major players in San Diego’s music scene: vocalist/guitarist Dane Scott (three-time San Diego Music Award nominee), keyboardist Jeremy Miller (the Fryday Band), drummer Los Perez (Splitfinger), and bassist Sol Turpin (the Troyz/Safety Orange). Though they may be gone, the brilliant ska/punk sounds of Sublime will likely never be forgotten, at least not if 40 oz. to Freedom has any say in the matter. 18+.
