 Nick Lowe Con Los Straitjackets in 2017

I was thrilled to see that Nick Lowe was playing again in my hamlet. It's been five years since my wife and I enjoyed him in concert. Then it was YepRoc's YR15 festival bringing him to our region, so the few hours trip for another gig made good sense. Well, it's five years later, so YepRoc's doing the do for their 20th anniversary. Nick and Los Straitjackets will be there, but LS are also playing with Nick on five dates of his current tour as a nod to their recent Nick Lowe cover album. Once again, the fine folks at YepRoc are working that synergy on a package tour. The last time I saw Los Straitjackets, it was on the "Mondo Zombie Boogaloo" YepRoc package tour with The Fleshtones and Southern Culture On The Skids. From the "hi-concept" Halloween 2013 package album of the same name.

Would have loved to have seen that show, but it never hit the West Coast *shakes fist*. See, sometimes you guys get shows that we don't. And this appears to be another one...

Great, Monk! We saw that pairing a couple years ago at Christmas. Terrific show! Enjoy.

Here is a band that can give you anything live. There's something exciting about the sound of british island pub rock played by landlocked American surf guitarists (and a drummer). However, the possibility of either drowning or suffocating (all those masks!) is very real here.

The band would do well to run everything they play through a country/reggae dub filter (is Sly and Robbie available to tour with the band?) for maximum twenty fist century impact.

If it ain't stiff, it ain't worth a fuck.
