Yes, We'll Take Cash



    Vito Di Stefano
    Cash'd Out took the award for Best Tribute Band at this year's San Diego Music Awards.

    Being behind the scenes at the Casbah the last few years, I've learned a lot about booking and the method to the madness of running a rock club. It isn't very often that the Casbah will book tribute or cover bands, because original music is encouraged and nurtured. There are a few exceptions, however, and one of them is Cash'd Out. The Johnny Cash tribute band has long been revered as one of the best tributes in the city -- as evidenced by its multiple San Diego Music Awards -- and couldn't be more appropriate for what many consider the busiest bar night of the year. Be safe, take a cab, enjoy the music and nurse your hangover with a great Thanksgiving. I'll be taking the day off Thursday but will be back with your weekend shows on Friday.
