After welcoming Dave and Tessa back to California with dinner at Blair’s in Silverlake on Saturday, we headed over to the Troubadour, the historic stage where acts like Joni Mitchell and the Pointer Sisters made their debut. Halos, a band from Orange County, didn’t disappoint. They blasted the audience with expressive, fuzzy guitar and jumped on top of the monitor wedges at the end of the show to prove their rock credentials. Bryan recorded and mixed the Halos album a few months ago, but we were pretty impressed at their live show chops. I’m glad they’re coming into their own. They got onto KROQ’s Locals Only show a week or so ago and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll get regular play on the station. We’ve teased Dan, the lead singer who is in his early 20s, about being too young to sport a beard, so it was funny to see last night that all his friends have beards, too.
