DiMaggio Connection lays claim to rockabilly and its myriad roots and offshoots, like swing and surf. But elements of punk creep in there as well. The Italian trio's stab at The Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby" has hints of how the Sex Pistols covered "My Way." The sharp-dressed band's sound is a slick and beautiful, hollow-bodied twist and twang, featuring Setzer-esque prestidigitation and a solid back beat. You can dance to it. I give it a 10, and so will you.
DiMaggio Connection plays Monday, March 24, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $10. abilenebarandlounge.com.
