TV’S PUNK ROCK SUPERHEROES THE AQUABATS TAKE OVER HOUSE OF BLUES SAN DIEGO DURING COMIC-CON
WHO: TV’s punk rock superheroes The Aquabats formed in 1994 in Orange County as a way to have some harmless fun in a music scene that took itself too seriously. Their Paul Frank designed “power belts,” trademark blue rash guards, black eye masks, “anti-negativity” helmets and onstage antics quickly caught on, earning the group a fiercely loyal following that spans generations. Their line-up and music is continuously evolving, including Blink 182’s Travis Barker as former drummer “Baron Von Tito.”
Current Aquabats are Christian Jacobs, “The MC Bat Commander” (lead singer), Chad Larson, “Crash McLarson” (bass, vocals), Ian Fowles, “EagleBones FalconHawk” (guitar), Richard Falomir, “Ricky Fitness” (drums), and James Briggs, “Jimmy the Robot” (keyboards, woodwinds, vocals).
WHAT: The Aquabats take over House Of Blues San Diego during Comic-Con. The Aquabats have called upon their Cadets far and wide to attend this special performance! If you are the proud owner of an Aquabats uniform, wear it. All those in uniform will be asked to participate in a secret mission and photo op after the show! Something new and exciting is coming and, as The Aquabats approach their 25th Anniversary, they’ll soon invite their fans to join them on their greatest adventure yet!

The show received eight multiple Daytime Emmy nominations and one win. Super Show!’’s run was cut short when The Hub closed in 2014, leaving fans consistently asking for a return.
