This past year saw Sublime with Rome play in large theaters and amphitheaters across the country—and their three-day holiday run at the House of Blues is an intimate venue for a band of this size. But these shows are for a good cause. The concert proceeds benefit the Orangewood Children’s Foundation, a charity that houses Orange County children who were victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment. With the band in the holiday spirit, don’t be surprised if they cull deep into their catalog and include some rarities along with the well-loved career-spanning set lists. One thing is for certain, seeing the Long Beach-natives rock at a smaller room, at least for them, is what makes this the most wonderful time of the year.
