Reel Big Fish Plays Boston University Senior BBQ

Reel Big Fish recently learned to use Instagram

Further cementing the belief that ska is beach music, Reel Big Fish will be headlining the Boston University Senior BBQ on Saturday, May 11. The event runs 7pm to 11pm and we’re not quite sure what “headlining” means. While only open to BU seniors, we couldn’t help but notice that the show takes place outdoors at the BU Beach (see map below).

…Thinking what I’m thinking? Lawn chairs on the Charles River Esplanade? ¬†Or is it just easier to befriend a BU Senior? It certainly promises to be an intimate event, regardless of how long they end up playing.

UPDATE 5/11/13 5:40 PM: Due to the chance of rain, this show was moved indoors.

According to the BU Senior Week Website

The Senior BBQ is Saturday, May 11, from 7 to 11 p.m. in the George Sherman Union Metcalf Hall, 775 Commonwealth Ave. Tickets are $20. The original location was the BU Beach, but the likelihood of rain has moved the event indoors. Dress is casual. If you are attending the Senior BBQ, tweet #BU13BBQ.

This certainly puts a damper on things. Per twitter, it’s now open to all students, not just seniors, but it still sounds closed to the public. It certainly kills the lawnchair attack.


Reel Big Fish last released Candy Coated Fury in July 2012. They next pass through town with Warped Tour on July 11 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA.
