It’s been well over a decade since Reel Big Fish gained attention with their second album, Turn the Radio Off, and while we’ve seen most ska-punk groups of that time fade away, the Huntington Beach group has nicely chugged along to put out five more albums. And over that time they’ve attracted a new generation of Reel Big Fish fans, drawing a healthy mix of young and young-at-heart to The Pageant for a good night of loud outfits and louder horns. For me, it’s been a while since I’ve listened to that album, but when the group kicked off their set with “Sell Out,” all those fun memories came flooding back.
From a photography perspective, this set was a really fun one to shoot with big lights and vibrant colors. Hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I did taking them.
