Sublime reunion in...WTF??? Nevada???
The Internets are abuzz with the rumors of a potential reunion of Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh, also known as the two living members of Sublime. The fact that Wilson and Gaugh performed in the Long Beach Dub Allstars and a slew of bands pre-Sublime makes this a tad less exciting as say, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl playing together, it's still news because it sounds like they might be gearing up for a Sublime reunion/tribute/whatever that lasts more than one show.
According to Gaugh's myspace page, his latest group, Del Mar, is playing with "VERY VERY special guests performing. Trust us, you will kick yourself in the ass with spiked steel-toe boots if you miss this show." Now, as some of you may or may not know, I don't just spout off random tidbits of information and post them online. Sometimes I do actual reporting and just yesterday I called a very reliable source who confirmed the duo is playing. Everything sounds very up in the air at this point, but if Wilson and Gaugh continue, I'll have more to say at a later date.
For those looking to travel to Nevada (and time-travel back to the '90s), the venue is called Cantina Los Tres Hombres. According to the homepage, the bill for Feb. 28 is Del Mar and "S*blime."
