Grass Skirts and Pompadours: Scenes form the Psychobilly Luau (NSFW)
By Alexander Thompson
Screaming Rebel Angels
They say that the Cramps
were the precursor to the psychobilly movement, so it only seems right that the fifth annual Pyschobilly Luau
music festival is held in the New York City punks’ former territory. This year’s weekend-long festivities brought out bands from around the world, including old-school punks The Klingonz from Ireland, who dressed in whacky clown drag, and UK teddy boy rockers, Furious
. Other acts included Boston’s Tex Railers Doomtown
, as well as local favorites the Memphis Morticians
and The Arkhams
. Brooklyn’s newest band on the scene, The Screaming Rebel Angels
, fronted by lovely event producer Laura Rebel Angel, was a refreshing new highlight. And a thumb’s up to the young gentlemen in Phoenix-based gothabilly band The Limit Club
, who performed a fun version of Bauhau
s’ “Kick in the Eye.” German dj’s Spy and Fussl kept the crowds entertained, spinning incredible sets which included classic pyschobilly bands like The Meteors
Check out my photos above from all of the pyscho fun.
