Something wicked this way comes…
Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot! rolls into town this Wednesday night at the Uptown.
The show is a general admission on the floor, seated balcony show.
Setzer is the guy, formerly of The Stray Cats of the rockabilly revival pompadour and everything, who converted to swing, and now is playing a mix of both, also with a bit of jazz thrown in. He’s just been nominated for Best Pop Instrumental Album for his solo album Setzer Goes instru-MENTAL! so you can expect some of that as well.
So if you have that leopard print sport coat that you can only wear like five times a year, now is your chance Hearne…
They just began the US leg of their tour last week in Detroit, after just returning from Europe playing to crowds of 50,000 plus.
I’m expecting the Uptown floor tobecome a whirling dervish of poodle skirts, wallet chains, and hair grease. In a good way.
Also on the bill is Slim Jim Phantom, drummer from The Stray Cats.
Wednesday night the doors are at 7:00 and the show is at 8:00.
