8 p.m. Wednesday, December 7. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

It's a sure sign of encroaching middle age when your favorite, formative bands have their own documentary films, full of A-list testimonials and archival footage. The new Fishbone doc, Everyday Sunshine, has plenty of big names (including Ice-T, Gwen Stefani and, in a feat of phonetic brilliance, Laurence Fishburne as narrator), but the story centers on the love-hate brotherhood between founding members Angelo Moore and Norwood Fisher. The two men continue to keep the Fishbone dream alive with endless touring and a fervent belief that the line between black and white music can dissolve in fury of ska, punk, funk, metal and soul.

Last Time: The band made it back to the City Museum in March, just nine months after its last trip to the urban playground.
