RFT Music writer Allison Babka had this to say about the show in our print critic's picks this week:

Mainstream ska-punk bands often get thrown onto '90s fad lists, lumped together with Hypercolor T-shirts and Gak as "that thing that happened that one time." But despite pop radio's quick dismissal of the genre, bands such as Reel Big Fish have continued to skank away with energetic brass, distorted guitar and catchy lyrics for more than twenty years. Relentless touring with third-wave ska standouts such as Less Than Jake, Goldfinger and Let's Go Bowling has ensured that RBF fans get the most bang for their concert buck, and with the Pilfers and St. Louis' own Dan Potthast on the Pageant bill, this show will be no exception.

Check out the music video for their song "I Dare You to Break My Heart" from the band's latest album Candy Coated Fury:
