I am so far behind in my blog posts. I am going to attempt to catch up over the next week or so (while squeezing in a camping trip with the kidlets that will, of course, have me away from the computer some more).
Bim is an old favorite of ours. A great Boston ska band that is mostly on hiatus. The lead singer, Dan Vitale, now lives in Costa Rica or something – makes it a bit hard for a band to play together. However, for the last two years or so, they have been doing some mini-reunion tours. I had been lucky enough to catch one of their original reunions opening for the Bosstones during one of their Hometown Throwdown dates at House of Blues in 2009. Six months later, they were playing a mini tour, and I caught them at Jerky’s in Providence. Now, a year later, I’m coming back for more!
What I hadn’t realized was that this was the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut album. As a result, they brought out as many of the original band members as possible. They cranked through a set of their more popular tunes. Took a break. And, then came back on for another set that rocked each song from that debut album.
It was a great show. Good dancing (probably some bad dancing too). Great friends. Fun night. Can’t ask for much more.
