When music fans talk about band tragedy it's usually the dual suicides in Badfinger, the death of Duane Allman or Kurt Cobain's demise. Sublime was dealt a hand every bit as bad; the ska-punkers were up and coming, they'd recorded the best album of their career, superstardom loomed - and singer/guitarist Brad Nowell died of an accidental heroin overdose two months before its 1996 release.

With the passage of time band members prefer to look on the happier times, and here's a chance to do that. A classic concert from the Palace in Hollywood taped on Oct. 21, 1995. The recently discovered footage is surprisingly excellent, both in quality and in the performance (we'll have a full interview with drummer Bud Gaugh with the DVD release tomorrow). They're also giving fans a preview tonight - for $1.99, you can stream the entire show through the band's website or Facebook page. The time is 6 p.m. Pacific/9 p.m. Eastern, sharp. Partnering with Milyoni, it'll also give fans to chat in real time as they watch the show.
