ROCKABILLY | Rosie Flores


Reigning rockabilly queen, filly, and diva Rosie Flores has been a constant on the scene for years. Yet the Austin-based singer-guitarist still plays with the joy of a 9-year-old playing a chocolate guitar. Whereas Flores voice is coquettish and sweet with just enough drawl and coo, her guitar playing is slick and mean. Come see what I mean. This show is the gal's birthday, so leave room for cake. Openers Bar Brawl III, the aptly titled trio from Austin is pure rock 'n' roll impurity. Slop and sleaze greasier than the Reverend Horton Heat, and just as gone as Panther Burns. A shit ton of fun, y'all.

Rosie Flores and Bar Brawl III play Tuesday, July 14, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $20.;
