Join The Crofoot Ballroom for Uncle Bruce’s Brown tooth BBQ Bash on Saturday May 23 with live music by Southern Culture on the Skids, Los Straitjackets, The Meltdowns, The Crimson Ghosts (a surf-rock tribute to The Misfits). Dooley Wilson and much more!
SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS (SCOTS) can't help but be a walking, talking storybook of Southern folkways. Long the bards of downward mobility, they were recently described by Dwight Yoakam (in Filter) as "really on the outside, like Dick Dale meets Hank Thompson." SCOTS have mixed high and low culture for decades, endlessly touring, serving up moonshine martinis and poultry picking for fans everywhere. Now, with their new fifteen-song covers collection, Countrypolitan Favorites, they've given the Go-Go country treatment to some of their favorite songs, creating a tasty buffet of tunes from Don Gibson to T-Rex.
Combining the classic strumming of 1960s surf music with unbridled punk fury; LOS STRAITJACKETS have carved a successful niche for themselves in the world of alternative rock. Comprised of Eddie Angel and Danny Amis on guitars, Pete Curry on bass, and Jimmy Lester on drums, the instrumental band has performed original as well as classic tunes, while always focusing on pop culture and fun. Their trademark Mexican wrestling masks, matching clothes, and custom-made matching guitars have made them one of the more visually exciting bands to see in live performance. "We're just fans of pop culture, whether it's rock 'n' roll, monster movies or Mexican wrestling," explains Angel.
With plenty of cheap beer along with local openers The Meltdowns, Dooley Wilson and more –this is one Memorial Day’s weekend PARTY you won’t want to miss!
