FREE OUTDOOR CONCERT - BADFISH - A TRIBUTE TO SUBLIME SHOW AT K1
Posted on August 01, 2011
Killington, VT -- Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime will take the outdoor stage to perform a free concert at the Killington Resort on Saturday, August 6 from 3:30pm to 6pm. The free concert is part of the Town of Killington’s “Cooler In The Mountains” music series presented by Long Trail Brewing Co., and is taking place during the weekend of the Super Spartan Beast Race at the mountain.
The phenomenon known as Sublime, considered by many music fans to be one of the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic bands to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. Badfish: a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime, and has developed a scene and a dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts.
Formed in 2001, Badfish has become one of the biggest club and theater acts in the Northeast and Midwest. The band, which is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year, sounds just like Sublime, and some fans say that seeing Badfish live is the most fun they’ve ever had at a show.
Music fans may wish to arrive at the mountain a little early to watch some of the extreme endurance race known as the Super Spartan Beast Race. This timed, 10+ mile obstacle course takes racers around the mountain where they face military-style obstacles like an eight foot wall, slippery incline wall, cargo net climb, barbed wire crawl, water obstacles, mud crawl, spear throw, fire jump and gladiator pit. Spectators are welcome.
“Cooler In The Mountains” performances are scheduled for every Saturday afternoon, through August 27, and will support the greening efforts of Reverb, a non-profit organization which educates and engages musicians and their fans to take action toward a more sustainable future. Each week, Reverb will activate its Carbon Offset Program, which allows fans to offset their carbon footprint by making a small charitable donation.
All of the “Cooler In The Mountains” concerts are free and open to all ages. A beer garden, outdoor grill and outdoor lawn games will accompany the live music, and guests are encouraged to bring lawn blankets and chairs to enjoy the scenic views. Concert-goers will also be invited to register to win a 2011-12 Killington Season Pass (no purchase necessary), which will be given away at the conclusion of the concert series. Special lodging packages are being offered in conjunction with the concerts. For more information visit www.discoverkillington.com.
