We should look fondly upon the 1950s. It was during this decade that the Betty Crocker canon of domesticity descended from the heavens, the Red Scare gassed out all the commies, and rock n roll robbed everyone of their panties. Rockabilly, that subgenre mutt with the greasy forelock, did a pretty fine job of busting us out of our squares, too.
Live up the past at Ol Skool Fest 08. The rockabilly extravaganza includes a car show, the Miss Arizona Pin-Up Contest, and a host of greaser bands including Pachuco Jose y Los Diamantes, Vargas Bros, Moonlight Cruisers, Badluck Bandits, Gamblers Mark, and Germanys Booze Bombs.
