Review: Reel Big Fish, Rock City
Reel Big Fish jumped into action after support acts Magnus Puto and Suburban Legends, who really riled the crowd.
The headliners kicked off with Everyone Else Is..., lifted from their latest album, Candy Coated Fury.
It was clear from the off that they had the same high energy and presence as ever.
Trendy was closely followed by the deliciously skank-able instrumental 241, before hits like Sell Out and She Has A Girlfriend Now kept the party spirit going, with the throng dancing vigorously throughout.

Original member Aaron Barrett on lead vocals and guitar worked the crowd, bantering with Dan Regan on trombone, engaging in a guitar/trombone duel.
The set ended on a high with Beer, before they returned with a four-song encore. Monkey Man and new song Don’t Stop Skankin’ induced a circle pit.
Next was an amusing medley of Suburban Rhythm performed in the styles of punk, reggae, disco, country and even death metal, before their popular cover of A-Ha’s Take On Me ended the show with the biggest sing-a-long of the night.
Reel Big Fish and their songs are timeless, and no doubt all shall return for the inevitable gig next year.
