Sublime immortal at Tahoe
October 22, 2008
Three bands are joining forces to present a tribute to Sublime at Whiskey Dick’s.
Sublime tribute the Lou Dog Trio is joining Long Beach Records’ newest signee, Starving Millionaires, and Audiodub for the tribute show, at 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at the saloon at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door.
Playing under the name Finney, Skinny and the Hick, the Lou Dog Trio began as a cover band at the University of Oregon in 2001-03. Upon graduation, the band lost its drummer to a career farming corn in Iowa, and the remaining members moved from Eugene to San Francisco.
The trio morphed into a Sublime tribute band in 2006 and added drummer Joe McKane to the lineup. The Lou Dog Trio now tours the West Coast, keeping Sublime’s music alive ” and live.
Starving Millionaires assembled in 2005 after years of procrastination and middle school angst, and now play up-tempo punk rock, with swabs of reggae, at clubs and high schools throughout the Bay Area.
After six months together, Starving Millionaires have 40 shows under their belts. In June they cut “First Ditch Effort,” a five-song EP, which listeners reportedly play in cars, Zumiez, the shower, and in the bedroom. The first track, “Double Brown,” has found some radio airtime.
