Sublime With Rome Better Than Ever at First Ave
Sublime With Rome hit the scene when the band’s lead was a fresh, young 20-year-old. They debuted with their album Yours Truly, and followed up four years later with Sirens. Now the band is solid with co-founders Rome Ramirez and Eric Wilson along with Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails) and they’re tighter and better than ever.
What’s truly impressive about their latest album is they went into the studio without any demos or songs ready to go. They took a grassroots approach and made music on the spot. Rome commented, “It was great to work with Paul again, and with Josh Freese on drums, our chemistry was excellent. We had a great time recording the album in a totally organic way. There was no stress, even though we came up with stuff on the fly.”
You can witness the chemistry for yourself at First Avenue on Wednesday, July 19th at 7:30 pm. Less Than Jake is also playing. Tickets are $35, and the show is 18+. You can find $6 parking at the Park and Shop ramps that are a comfortable walk from the venue. The discount parking starts after 4.
