The next night, Sept. 16 @ The Park Bar in Burbank. Another fine establishment and a great time had by all. Photo by Skabbs staff photographer, Mark Salazar.
The Skabbs were (are) a punk rock or new wave band formed In 1976 or 77. Four guys from Torrance (aka: Lawndale, CA) convinced a uniquely talented guy named Steven J. Salazar (of South Pasadena) to join their already established "band" as lead singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. Over the next year or so, Salazar wrote a large quantity of songs for The Skabbs, performed with them, had the time of his life and then died. Eventually (thirty years later) we thought, "who else is gonna play this stuff?". Ultimately, the four of us decided to play Steve's songs again. This blog has been created to help raise Skabbs awareness, unashamedly promote our many endeavors, and spread hearsay and lies. Thanks!
