The Dragons are getting together to celebrate 22 years of the Casbah, a month-long celebration reuniting bands who've made their mark over the years.
There are so many great shows tonight that it's hard to pick just one. The Dragons and Deadbolt will grace the Casbah's stage, but tickets were selling swiftly, so if you missed your chance, perhaps you should check out the great lineup at Soda Bar, see Ilan Rubin in the New Regime up at the Ruby Room, or head up to North County for a fun show at the Saloon with the Kabbs and the Paragraphs. Throw a rock and you'll hit a spot with a great lineup, so take a little disco nap when you get off work and set out to party like a rock star all over town.
