In the late 1970′s you could find Fishbone from SoCal emerging as one of the quirkiest punk-reggae and ska acts of all time. It didn’t take long for the band to heap a cult-like entourage. But better yet, they were able to endure multiple culture transmutations and still come out on the top as the saboteurs of the ska, alternative and reggae genres.
The release of Crazy Glue EP in October of 2011 has finally sparked Fishbone’s follow-up tour, nearly ten months later. After winning The Pier’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, the group looked to carry their success into the new year. Only a few months later, the seven-man ensemble released a live album from a performance at The Independent in San Francisco.
The World’s Most Powerful Adhesive Tour will span across 30+ cities across the US mainland in support of their fifth EP and twelfth original release. On top of multiple festival stops, bands such as the Dirty Filthy Mugs, Nighttrain, The Pinstripes, Downtown Brown, Sophistafunk, and the Voodoo Glow Skulls will perform throughout . The West Coast city of Santa Ana will host the tour finale, which will feature C-Money & The Players, Inc., Sinizen, and will feature members of Slightly Stoopid.
