DS Photo Gallery: Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legends, The Maxies at The Fillmore SF (2.22.16)

Last Monday was a night of ska and acting weird at the legendary Fillmore venue here in San Francisco. Headliners Reel Big Fish are always a little bizarre during their sets, and they had help from openers Suburban Legends, and the power/pop/punk band The Maxies – originally from Greenland, now based in Southern California.

I had never seen The Maxies before, but they put on one hell of a set, all while donning skull and theatre masks resembling Phantom of The Opera. The guys have great energy, crazy stage presence, and even manage to play keyboard with their feet. They’ve been on the road with Reel Big Fish for the last six weeks, and there is no doubt the bands are a good fit for each other. You can listen to some of the band’s back catalog on their Bandcamp page.

Next to the stage was Huntington Beach’s own Suburban Legends. I love the horn section in this band, and it really does a lot to drive the sound, and definitely adds another layer of harmony. The band played a rather interesting set, covering multiple Disney songs, as well as the theme for Golden Girls (my favorite). But this may seem to pale in comparison when placed alongside Reel Big Fish’s choice of set list.

You know going into a Reel Big Fish show that there is going to be some type of outlandish or bizarre behavior coming from the stage, and bleeding out onto the dance floor. Right out the gate, the band opened with a cover of Europe’s “Final Countdown”, and went right into some tracks off “Turn The Radio Off”. Towards the latter part of their set, the band did a little medley of sorts, stating they were going to play “their one hit from the ’90s”, which then included samples of “Teen Spirit”, “My Own Worst Enemy”, “500 Miles”, and “Impression That I Get”. I honestly got the impression that the cover medley was going to on the whole night, but it was fitting and humorous. What would a RBF set be like if they didn’t cover that infamous track “Take On Me”, which is alright in my book, but I left happy after playing one of my favorites, “Beer” (both favorite in song, and also in liquid).

You can have a look at all the night’s photos below.

Big thanks to Jason, Mike, and everyone who helped with this event.
