Did you know there was a Rockabilly Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee? Did you know that the Hall of Fame has officially endorsed Tempe's Rockabilly Reunion?
Well, according to the Reunion's site, it is. This weekend sees the first annual three day chop-top fest (Wait, first annual reunion? Ah, nevermind).
Hosted at Tempe Diablo Stadium, the fest features '50s-themed cars, vendors, carnival rides, a Pin Up Pageant, drink specials, and, of course, a whole bunch of rockabilly music.
Taking place on October 28, 29, and 30. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children 12 and under (woo boy for the lucky 12-year-old kid wandering into the Pin Up Pageant).
Hours: Friday, October 28 - 12:00pm - 10:00pm Saturday, October 29 - 10:00am - 10:00pm Sunday, October 30 - 10:00am - 6:00pm
The Chop Tops, Cash d' Out, VooDoo Swing, The Deadbeat Daddies, Rooster Coupe DeVille, The Buzz Campbell Band, Danny Dean & The Rockabilly Lovers, The Sugar Daddy's,The Rhythm Dragons, Surfside IV, and The Octanes.
Don't let the fact that its not technically Halloween keep you from attending as a zombie greaser (not that it would have stopped you anyway).
