This Thursday, September 12th, there is an amazing Rockabilly show at Small's. Black Iris Booking and the Detroit Psychobilly Alliance are bringing in The Chop Tops from California. Joining them on the bill are locals The Gutter Ghouls, Cash O'Riley & The Downright Daddies, and The Flat Heads. Actually none of these bands consider themselves just Rockabilly. The Chop Tops classify themselves as "Revved-Up Rockabilly", while The Gutter Ghouls are Psychobilly, The Flat Heads are Punkabilly, and Cash O'Riley & The Downright Daddies, well they're the only ones that call themselves Rockabilly. So maybe they are all slightly different, but all the "billys" fall into the same category in my book and they're all awesome.
Tickets to this great show are only $12 and all ages are welcome. Lucky for you, we are giving away 2 pairs of tickets! To enter to win, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "The Chop Tops" in the subject line and your first and last name in the body of the email. If you want a second shot at entering, post about this show on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Make sure to tag us though so we can see it! We will be drawing our two lucky winners on Thursday morning.
This is going to be a super fun show, and ladies, we're sure there will be quite a few studs with pompadours there too. Well, at least we hope there will be! We're also sure you're going to love The Gutter Ghouls, so make sure you get there early to catch them. And plan on getting a little wet during their set... don't worry you'll see what we mean!
