Los Angeles rock band Fishbone had a hell of a heyday in the late 1980s and early '90s because Fishbone rules. Even if (you're soul-dead and) you don't like ska, funk, punk, or metal, you will instantly like Fishbone after hearing the first five seconds of "Party at Ground Zero." Some of us remember the band for its early, hysterically mean pair of anthems, "Ugly" and "Lyin' Ass Bitch," from its debut EP. But the band's biggest success came with the MTV hit "Everyday Sunshine," also the title of a brand-new documentary about the band, screening tonight at the Roxie at 7:15. Three of the original members Angelo Moore (sax and vocals), John Norwood Fisher (bass and vocals), and Walt Kibby (trumpet and vocals) lead the band, and will appear at the screening to answer questions. But as various people keep saying in the film, there is nothing better than Fishbone live onstage.
