CONTEST: Win tickets to premiere of Fishbone documentary featuring live set by Fishbone

The Roxie explains:

SAN FRANCISCO THEATRICAL PREMIERE! Exploding out of South Central LA with a previously unthinkable and utterly undeniable funk-thrash swing and a joyously chaotic stage show, Fishbone quickly ascended to the top of the hyper-competitive heap of Hollywood club bands in the 1980s. But selling something so awesome and unusual to the American public? That’s where the trouble began. EVERYDAY SUNSHINE ecstatically traces the tangled threads, simultaneously shooting straight about Angelo Moore and Norwood Fisher’s dogged persistence in continuing the band amidst innumerable setbacks. Dirs: Lev Anderson & Chris Meltzer. Interviews with past and present members of Fishbone, Flea, No Doubt, George Clinton, Mike Watt, Tim Robbins & ?uestlove. 2010. Digital. 103 mins.

Both Friday night shows include acoustic performances by the band and Q&A with the band and the film makers! See a week’s worth of showtimes and buy tickets here.

To win a pair of tickets to the Friday night show of your choice, leave a comment below explaining why you deserve to win. Contest ends at 5PM on Wednesday, January 4, 2012. Winner will be chosen based on merit.

    I have been a fan for the longest time and I need some fun.

    Fishbone is one of the most underrated and influential group of musicians coming out of the 80s. Norwood is in my top 3 bassists of all time. Long before Public Enemy ever existed, Fishbone taught this Midwestern white boy about the black experience in USA.

    Hook me up!

  3. When discussing nearly any type of music with friends at a club, I am always the first jackass to say “Yeah, but remember Fishbone?!?”

    If somebody had sex with Kelly Kate would the have a smelly fishboner?

  5. Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

    One of my all-time favorite live acts. The first time I saw them some jock stole angelo’s cane and he jumped into the crowd and beat the crap out of the guy.

    Sadly, I am out of town during this show. SAD FACE.

  6. IJ Reilly says:

    Fishbone narrated by Fishburne – that alone is a thing of beauty

  7. Nicolas says:

    I deserve tickets to see Fishbone because of all the time I spent as a grade schooler watching Back to the Beach for their duet with Annette Funicello and for all the crate digging I did to find that soundtrack on vinyl and because not a week goes by when I don’t listen to “ma & pa” and their cover of “what’s new pussycat” with Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. PLEAAASEEEE!!!

  8. buzzgirl says:

    Gimme tickets because I love Fishbone, and I don’t pee out of windows. Also, ’cause I’m a black girl in the Mission. Race card: played.

    When I was 17 the 1st ep had just come out. My friends were all skate punks who hadn’t heard them yet. Broke as hell, we’re loafing on the corner in Suburbia. I knew they were playing that night at the Keystone Palo Alto (now gone). I see Angelo walking across the street and he’s walking over to us. He starts talking to my friends. Me: Angelo, I love Fishbone! Angelo: You coming tonight? Me: Too broke Angelo: I’ll put you on. They coming? Me: Not yet. Angelo: I’ll put you on +5

    And he did! Seriously, who +5s? A mensch!

  10. EH says:

    i have the electro remix of “freddie’s dead,” that’s why. i also saw the untouchables at the omni.

    keystone palo alto isn’t gone, it became the edge and is now a dinner club called “illusions,” somewhere losing the side parking.,+Palo+Alto,+CA&hl=en&ll=37.42764,-122.143799&spn=0.001566,0.003436&sll=37.427889,-122.144009&layer=c&cbp=13,324.71,,0,6.2&cbll=37.427719,-122.143677&hnear=260+S+California+Ave,+Palo+Alto,+California+94306&t=m&z=19&vpsrc=0&iwloc=A&panoid=IjdcyTxGjlO19hWNMa1BGg

    Best concert moment: Angelo hands me the mic while ‘swimming’ on top of the crowd at Axis in Boston – Swim, motherfucker, swim motherfucka swim.

    Also, I got thrown out of there show in SF at the Regency Ballroom for stage diving during King’s X set. Who throws people out for stage diving at a Fishbone show!

  12. david says:

    their probably more needy than me, i have posted a lot retweets, and written a tweets about the roxie, other theaters, and arts orgs., and non profit activity, and on facebook too, as well other social nets in the past, also go all way from novato on bus to your theater, many times a year, if dont give to me give to hell on frisko bay, he does alot of the same

    “sour to the taste, but sweet to the tooth.. Death by saccharination”
    1994: Age 16 first music festival north shore of oahu angelo walks through the crowd shirtless, large shaman staff, hits on my friend (we had no idea who he was, just thought he was some crazy), proceeds to walk to the stage and play a set with his pubes hanging out. First time I realized black people are frizzy down there, too. Thanks Angelo!

  14. George says:

    I deserve the tix because in 1993 I saw Primus open for Fishbone in a converted art deco movie theatre in Miami Beach. Yes Primus was opening. I caught Fish’s drumstick at the end of the set (a Fishstick as it proclaims) and still carry it with me everywhere close to 20 years later.
