Rockabilly Sundays at The Dirty Dogg Saloon

Looking for something to do this week? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Sunday night marks "Rockabilly Sundays" at The Dirty Dogg Saloon.

The Dirty Dogg Saloon's raunchy, raucous vibe and biker bar theme make it an ideal location for Rockabilly Sundays every Sunday.

The two-month-old event features performances by rockin' groups such as The Booze Bombs and $3 shots of Sailor Jerry's rum.

The Time: 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Sundays 

The Place: 10409 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale

The Cover: Free

The Parking: Big lot.

The Bar: Dirty Dogg's a dimly lit dive bar with all the trimmings of a biker bar. Rockabilly Sundays features happy hour until 8 p.m. as well as $3 shots of Sailor Jerry's Rum. The overall atmosphere is sexy/sleazy depending on how you feel about a ceiling covered in lingerie. 

The Music: Germany's The Booze Bombs brought out the boogie woogie and the traditional rockabilly sounds on Sunday. Rockabilly Sundays has also featured locals acts such as Rhythm Dragons and Voodoo Swing.

The People: A grab bag of bar flies, bikers and a few genuine rockabilly aficionados. The age ranged anywhere from early 20s to mid 40s. 

The Style: Somewhat of a subdued biker fashion, just a lot of black and jeans. The Rockabilly look of leather, pompadours and 50s fashions was primarily only found on the band. The waitresses kept it pretty simple, wearing a little more than underwear. 

What we loved: The music was rockin' and even got some people out onto the dance floor. 

What we didn't love: A few tough-looking bar goers and dim lighting was a little off-putting, but if you stick around you'll realize you don't need to be a biker to enjoy this bar. 

Would we go back? If The Booze Bombs are back, then so are we.
