TGIF July 31: Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

by The Editors on July 27, 2015

The City of Carlsbad’s TGIF Concert in the Parks returns to rock this Friday evening (July 31, 2015) with the R&B sounds of Tommy Castro & The Painkillers.

After years of playing guitar-driven blues and R&B backed by a tight horn section, Castro introduced The Painkillers live in 2012, creating a lean, mean four-piece lineup, with the drum chair now held by David Tucker. Fueled by Tommy’s voice and guitar plus bass, drums and keyboards, the band released the 45rpm single Greedy / That’s All I Got later that year (both songs are included as bonus tracks on the new CD). Greedy quickly became one of Castro’s most-requested songs. The Chicago Sun-Times calls his music “fiery and soul-drenched.”

Poinsettia Community Park is located at 6600 Hidden Valley Road, in Carlsbad, California. And remember to make parking easier, park at North Coast Calvary Chapel and get a ride to the park in a shuttle.
