Eldorado Del Rey is in very select company. In fact, Eldorado may be the only musical artist with both a Taco Land gig and an Aerosmith/KISS tour on his résumé. Eldorado achieved both distinctions while a member of the raw, punk-blues band the Porch Ghouls. The Ghouls were “discovered” by Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, who was so taken with them he not only offered them a touring slot, but also recorded their 2003 debut album and released it on his own label, Roman Records.
These days, Eldorado (a Sun Studio tour guide) is scaring away the pesky hellhounds with his new band, a suitably primal Memphis contingent called Ruckus. Eldorado and the Ruckus will grace the Alamo City with their cathartic presence on Thursday, October 12, when they invade Limelight Music and Drinks (2718 N. St. Mary’s). Opening the show will be the can’t-miss San Antonio supergroup, Suzy & The Soul Mix Revue. Fronted by Suzy Bravo, the group also features Mescaleros guitarist Roland De La Cruz, Sexto Sol bassist Eddie Hernandez, and Snowbyrd drummer Manny Castillo. Showtime is 10 p.m.
