I saw the Roy/Cyril/A-Bones configuration several times, the most recent being last September at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans where they just flat-out levitated the joint. Since time is of the essence here and we're trying to get the word out about this show, I will spare you any more of my clumsy superlatives and instead leave you with some songs the Groovies taught us. In the meantime, stop reading this and go out and buy Flamingo, Teenage Head, and California Born and Bred and Slow Death. Do it now. Tickets for tonight's show can be purchased here. This is the only show in the USA this time around. You can also catch them this Easter Sunday in London. Check your local listings.
