Look out for a real show coming up this Friday when Los Straightjackets and The Yachtsmen take over IOTA. I emphasize the word show here because both of these bands are seriously dedicated to rock entertainment; these are musicians who will stop at nothing to bring a sense of fun to the stage.
Los Straightjackets, an outstanding guitar driven surf band out of Nashville rerouted themselves through Mexico for headgear, and that's just for starters. (You might remember Straightjacket guitarist Eddie Angel who came to our town around 1980 to play with Tex Rubinowitz and The Bad Boys)
The Yachtsmen, those bad boys in Brooks Brothers jackets, spend an inordinate amount of time in thrift stores hunting ascots in order to deliver their original brand of straight up rock and roll. If you go, be on the early side as Iota doesn't sell tickets in advance, but it does have a lot of good beer. $15 cover.
