Fishing for Husbands

Posted By on Tue, Apr 22, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Is everyone heading over to Higher Ground tonight?

In case you weren't aware, hometown newbies Husbands AKA will be playing! And while it's always a big deal when a band plays its first big HG gig, Husbands decided to skip the Showcase Lounge and go right for the Ballroom.

Why?

Because they're opening for Reel Big Fish.

Yup, everyone's favorite ska-punk band is coming to Burlington. And what better local group to open the show than our own ska-inspired outfit?

Word is that over 400 tickets have sold so far, so you better grab yours this afternoon if you plan to attend. The price (now $18 on the day of) is certainly steep compared to Husbands' usual shows at the Monkey, or Wasted City, but I for one decided I couldn't miss tonight's ultimate high school throwback. Well, technically middle school for me, but you know.

Speaking of middle school throw backs, did you hear who's playing HG tomorrow night? Hanson. Yep. And if you think the price of tonight's show is steep, don't plan on tomorrow. At $30 a ticket, I'm interested to see just how big a crowd those perfect coifs still draw.

Really I wish Husbands AKA was playing their gig tomorrow instead of tonight. If only for the chance of partially recreating this:
