Reel Big Fish celebrates 20 years in Portland February 8, 2017
For me, it was 20 years ago at a big festival show in George, Washington. They took the stage, and I looked at the group of people I was with and said, "Who is this?" As soon as I heard them say, "We're Reel Big Fish" I went in search of their merch tent. This girl was not going home without some Reel Big Fish in her CD player.
While waiting in line, this guy in a crazy Hawaiian shirt looked at me and said, "Come here!"
That was the beginning of my love for Reel Big Fish. Don't get any ideas, beers and laughter was what was shared. I'm not that kind of groupie, gosh! But, it did begin one of the most profound sound affairs I have had with a musical group.
Tonight, they hit the Portland stage with Anti-Flag at the Roseland Theater to celebrate 20 years of cranking out crazy tunes.
