With Openers: The Honky Tonk Hindooz
The Honky Tonk Hindooz hail from high in the Himalachian mountains of the Indian subcontinent. Comprised of upright bass, guitar, accordion and sometimes drums, the Hindooz play an eclectic blend of psychedelic garage country and weirdo rock and roll oldies from the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s and 80′s. They specialize in original countrified arrangements of popular songs by artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, The Kinks, Buddy Holly and The Clash, all in a jangly, swaggerly Roots-Americana stew. Lively, energetic risk takers, the Hindooz infuse their performances with equal parts religious zeal and humor, guaranteed to make you want to get on your feet and praise Krishna.
