Austin Corn Lovers Fiesta! The Sloths @12:30am, Pat Todd & the Rankoutsiders @11:30pm, Hickoids @10:30pm, Zofo @9:30pm – $10 cover at the door @9:00pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
It’s the first night of the 2019 Austin Corn Lovers Fiesta with a mondo lineup starring L.A. friends The Sloths and Pat Todd & The Rank Outsiders.
9:30pm: Zofo – A sure to be supergroup at the intersection of glam, garage and Texas featuring Javier Escovedo, Glenn Benavides, David Fairchild and Thierry Lecoz.
10:30pm: Hickoids featuring Frontier Dan – Hickoids have collaborated with their Conway, Arkansas based amigo many times over the past several years, even recording a handful of songs with him at Dale Watson’s new Wat-Sun Studio in Memphis this past May. Expect to hear a preview of some of that and other oddities.
11:30pm: Pat Todd & The Rankoutsiders – If there is a definition of “rock’n’roll” in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary it should have Pat’s picture next to it. With The Rankoutsiders the former frontman of The Lazy Cowgirls produces a seemingly limitless stream of high-octane, melodic garage punk classics that tip their hat to the greats of the 50’s and 60’s.
12:30am: The Sloths – The Sloths are a genuine artifact of the mid-1960’s Sunset Strip scene. The band was resurrected earlier this decade and their high-energy live shows capture the innocence and fun of garage rock on the eve of The Summer of Love and are reminiscent of contemporaries like The Standells.
