The Paladins- one of my favorite bands- returned to the stage and San Diego on Friday January 8, 2016 at the iconic San Diego music venue The Casbah. Interestingly, the last time I saw the Paladins play was at the Casbah for their album release party of "Slippin' In" in 1999.
Opening the night were The Bed Breakers- a potent roots band also hailing from San Diego.
Blue Largo- fronted by Eric Lieberman and Alicia Aragon- took the main stage next with their blend of revue style Rhythm & Blues.
Sometime around 11PM The Paladins took the stage to a packed audience. The Paladins never disappoint. Dave Gonzalez absolutely shreds on his vintage Guild. Thomas Yearsley's stage presence is as vibrant as ever and Brian Fahey's drumming is tight and crisp.
Thank you, to The Paladins for giving me 19 years of music pleasure.
