Alternative rockers Better Heroes opened for Sublime on Saturday night. Gracing the stage with energy lead singer Hunter Allen sang while consistently rocked her body to the beat meanwhile bandmates Zack Vredenburgh (bassist), Evan Schaid (drummer), Michael Tallman (guitartist), and Matthew Marsico (guitarist) jammed alongside her. Since forming in 2012 Better Heroes has created a unique sound that appeals to more than just a teenage audience. Sublime fans ranging in age were cheering, and grooving to Weather, Down and Out, and 9 to 5 among many others from B.H. Better Heroes are a band from Long Beach, California so if given a chance catch them on a local show for a great rock concert to tell your friends at work about!
After a brief intermission the lights went dark and the curtains split apart making way for the reggae band from Long Beach, California who sold out all three nights of their shows at House Of Blues Anaheim: Sublime With Rome. Lead singer and guitarist Rome Ramirez came out from the side of the stage with his drink raised and said “Anaheim, how we fucking doing tonight?!” After asking the crowd to make some noise, the group led into their first song Date Rape which had the entire audience singing along and later cheering during the non-vocal parts. The bands 20+ song set consisted of fan favorites such as Badfish, Santeria, and What I Got. Sublime W/ Rome also played songs from their new album Sirens like House Party, Brazilia, Skankin, and Wherever You Go which fans enjoyed and sang along to.
Surprise guest appearances from Know-Madik and Duddy B (Dirty Heads) came during the bands encore song Sirens.
