March 18th marked the debut show of Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba taking Tom DeLonge’s spot as Blink 182 vocalist/guitarist since his departure in January earlier this year.
Due to commitments to play Travis Barker’s Musink festival in Orange County, California, Skiba joined the band shortly after and have been rehearsing rigorously for the past month.
The band scheduled two intimate warm-up shows before the festival at the Roxy in Los Angeles last night and San Diego’s SOMA tomorrow on the 20th, both with support from A Day To Remember.
Watch footage from last nights show below:
How do you think Skiba is doing DeLonge’s shoes?
