Reel Big Fish lands at Mesa Theater

Reel Big Fish, well-known for the singles “Sell Out” and “Take On Me,” will play a show at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.



Ska-punk band Reel Big Fish has jumped onto the second leg of its Don’t Stop Skankin’ Tour and will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.

Bands Suburban Legends, Mighty Mongo and the Maxies will open the show.

Enjoying mostly underground success these days, Reel Big Fish rose to fame in 1995 with its self-released debut album “Everything Sucks.”

Various hit singles, more albums and recognition have followed the band from that initial success to its most recent album, “Candy Coated Fury,” in July 2012.

That album is described at reel-big-fish.com as “an inspired and infectiously catchy return to the hyperkinetic ska and biting wit of the band’s beloved early albums.”

“This album is a lot like our first two albums. It’s got a lot of the same intensity, frantic energy in the music, and the same sarcastic sense of humor. I think these are the fastest songs we’ve done since those albums,” wrote Aaron Barrett, Reel Big Fish’s founding vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter, at the band’s website bio.

“We’re finally just doing what Reel Big Fish does best, and that’s what we did on those first two albums,” Barrett wrote.

Doors open for the show at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $23.

Call 241-1717 for information.
