Concert Review: Los Straitjackets - Sun., Aug. 2, 2009
Screaming matching guitars, Mexican wrestling masks, matching black suit... a Mel Thiel Review.

AAAAHHHHH!!!!! Screaming matching guitars, Mexican wrestling masks, matching black suits with skinny ties! Surf Rock at its best with Los Straitjackets at Musikfest Sunday August 2, 2009.

Under the packed tent at Plaza Tropical the music was rockin' with the instrumental surf sounds as only Eddie Angel, Mr. Pete, Daddy-O, and drummer Teen Beat can make. Eddie and Daddy-O make it seem so simple as they work their magic and Teen Beat made that drum kit smoke. Feeding off the energy of the crowd and blasting off one high energy tune after another; originals mixed in with the classics such at Telstar and Sleepwalk. WOW is all I can say. They don't come to our area often, so when they do, try your best to catch them and experience the magic. Of course, I bought a t-shirt!

Los Straitjackets recordings can be found on Yep Roc Records.
