Reel Big Fish played to a packed house recently at The Fillmore Silver Spring. The southern California ska-punk band co-headlined a show with Texas-based Bowling for Soup.

Reel Big Fish formed in 1991 while the original members were high school classmates in Orange County, California. Best known for its 1997 hit, “Sell Out,” the band gained mainstream recognition in the mid-1990s when groups like No Doubt, Sublime, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones pushed ska-punk into the realm of commercial success.

Commercial success peaked for Reel Big Fish in the early 2000s when they released three albums under the Mojo label, Jive Records. Since 2006, the band has been independent. The band released its ninth studio album, Life Sucks…Let’s Dance!,” in December 2018.
