The Georges
Monday, Dec. 26

If you’ve never seen Six String Samurai, you’re definitely missing out an B movie American classic.  Released in ‘98, the story follows “Buddy” (a parody of Buddy Holly), a lone swordsmen and guitar player who battles his way  through a post apocalyptic wasteland to Lost Vegas (Las Vegas obvs) where, at the end, Buddy must defeat the evil Death played by a parody of Slash from Guns n Roses. Anyway, the soundtrack is littered with Rockabilly and Psychobilly (a surfier, fast-tempo version of its standard counterpart) and makes the whole movie amazing and ridiculous. I guess what I’m trying to say is Rockabilly is awesome and the band The Georges are keeping the spirit of Rockabilly alive here in San Marcos and San Antonio.  So bust out those cowboy boots and grease up that pompadour cuz The Georges are gearing up to deliver a perfect blend of blues and country music. 7pm, $10, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E.
