Cars and Stripes

The gem of the Team America soundtrack, "America (Fuck Yeah)," rattles off a stunning litany of the things that make the United States great. Unfortunately, sweet hair, hot babes, and classic cars escaped mention, so AZ Rockabilly pays tribute with its own Independence Day bash, the Dixie Fried Concert & Car Show. Local bands Curse of the Pink Hearse (pictured) and Dirty Dan & the Distributors anchor a lineup that includes out-of-state shredders Suicide Drive, Dead City Saints, and The Desperados. And Los Desperados Car Club will be on hand to make sure the lead-sleds that show up are properly chromed out.
