A Sublime Evening in Tampa

A Sublime Evening in Tampa

“Summertime and the living’s easy, and Bradley’s on the microphone with Ras M.G.” say the lyrics to Sublime’s 1996 hit “Doin’ Time”. Fast forward almost twenty years, and neither Bradley Nowell, nor Marshall Goodman, a.k.a Ras M.G. were on the microphone, but the sound they created, and the mellow vibes that go along with it were in the air at Tampa’s Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on August 14th.

New Music and Tour From Slightly Stoopid

As we slide into June, we get to enjoy a nice treat from our favorite summer rockers, as Slightly Stoopid release the addictive “Prophet,” the lead single off of their forthcoming album.

Make sure you Like RARAsFarm’s Facebook Page and Follow us on Twitter for rock music coverage.

 
The music of Slightly Stoopid always feels like the perfect accompaniment to summer, and with the release of “Prophet” we get our first taste of their much anticipated June 30th full-length release of Meanwhile…Back At The Lab. To keep the cool summer vibe going, they’ll be touring with a killer line-up shortly after the release, including a handful of outdoor dates in The Sunshine State.

The new track is a catchy, breezy offering that is destined to be worn out on your Summer 2015 playlists. To get your first peek at the infectious track, laced with catchy riffs and a sweet summer vibe, check out the video released just hours ago – you’ll be one of the first to hear the track that currently has less than 500 views:

The song has an incredibly intriguing backstory as well, and might sound familiar to fans of Sublime. “The Prophet”, was penned by a 16 year-old Miles Doughty as a collaboration with the late Bradley Nowell of Sublime. Nowell’s early version was released after his death on Sublime’s Everything Under The Sun rarities box set.

“Remembering first jamming this song with Brad in my living room, and now working with Field Marshall “Ras MG” (Marshall Goodman) to bring the song to where it is today… its really just a story of life and what you make of it. I think brad would be proud to hear the evolution of the song” – Miles Doughty

Sublime and Pennywise Concert Review

Remember back when everybody’s favorite music on the planet was Reggae and Ska ?  The band Sublime was an instant hit , cranking out cool vibe songs, on three wonderful radio friendly albums.  Then tragically, the lead singer, songwriter Bradley Nowell, suddenly passed away.

So, without their main man, the band Sublime disappeared from the music scene for 12 years . Drummer Bud Gaugh, and Bassist Eric Wilson, finally decided years later to make another go of the music. Enter new Sublime singer Rome Ramirez.
After a few happy in-studio sessions, it was clear that Sublime had their singer, and a new moniker: Sublime With Rome.

Rome has the ability to reach the fans as Bradley did, with his great songwriting and showmanship. New songs have been recorded and the new tour has begun. And Florida has been blessed with a few shows. And in St. Augustine Florida , on a hot summer Saturday night, they made the rain soaked show their own.  High energy that could not be denied – these guys slammed the crowd with heavy reggae beats.

The band smartly pro-mixed in the newest tracks with the older fan favorite songs. The Sublime set lasted 1 :40 minutes and was a pleasure for all in attendance. Sublime’s massive crowd did not care about the rain, nor the mud, they just danced, smiled, and had a blast.

The management says the new album is ready, and these guys are officially back on the music scene!

Also, hard hitting opening band Pennywise was really a sight to see – very powerful music. These guys were very tight and moved everybody in the crowd. Frisbees were flying and inflatables everywhere, it was a party everyone will remember!
The band won a lot more new fans with their fast catchy tunes. The crowd was excited to hear the songs live, as they all sang along to every song in the set.

We’ll be back to see these bands again, and you should too.  It was a fun trip , and the bands were great.

The venue was really nice , even though it rained forever. Thanks St. Augustine and Rasafarm.com. Check this space for more cool music reviews , concert reviews , and exclusive backstage photo’s. We’ll be working overtime  to bring you the best reviews – tell your friends.
