Tex Pop Presents The King of The Fuzz Guitar in San Antonio Texas!

In the late sixties Davie Allan & The Arrows carved their niche in the musical history books with an array of classic instrumentals and two dozen motion picture soundtracks. The most notable of the movies were Roger Corman's cult classic The Wild Angels (starring Peter Fonda and Nancy Sinatra) along with Devil's Angels (starring John Cassavetes), The Glory Stompers (starring Dennis Hopper) and The Born Losers (the film that introduced the character Billy Jack). Some of the other 60's B-Movies were Riot On Sunset Strip, Thunder Alley, The Angry Breed, Mary Jane, Teenage Rebellion, Hellcats, Mondo Hollywood, The Wild Racers and Wild in The Streets.

More contemporarily, Davie Allan’s music has been featured in films by Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, in an episode of The Sopranos and on MTV. Often credited as the musician who popularized the fuzz guitar, his stamp is all over trash pop culture.

Tex Pop is please to have the opportunity to present this American musical treasure along with special guests 3 Balls of Fire, King Pelican and Harvey McLaughlin & The Bottomfeeders.

Admission is a suggested $10 donation to Tex Pop. The event is BYOB and All Ages.
South Texas Popular Culture Center
1017 E Mulberry Ave, San Antonio, Texas 78209

The crew at BK wants to bring the warmth of the Hawaiian islands to San Antonio for their last big bash of 2014. The team has arranged for the smooth surf and garage sounds of King Pelican to permeate the air as they craft fruity, boozy libations with spirits like Monkey ShoulderSailor JerryAncho ReyesMilagro, and Flor de Caña rums. One of SAs newest food trucks, LocaVore, will be offering a super special tiki menu that will focus on a whole Kahula pig. Accompanying the fine swine will be sides like pineapple kimchee, wasabi calamari, purple potato salad, and island mac and cheese. As always, Tiki Tuesday means guests are encouraged to don their tikiest of tiki garb. This is sure to be a wicked rad event, with food, music and garnish-heavy tiki cocktails to celebrate the season in a unique and fun way."
