SURF | Los Straitjackets


International men of mystery, those loveable, guitar wielding, surfing Luchadores, Los Straitjackets has played in front of huge crowds — 50,000 people in Mexico City, for instance. So let's make sure we pack the joint so the band doesn't feel out of place. The band seems up to new challenges, though. The new LSJ album "Los Straitjackets and Deke Dickerson Sings the Great Instrumental Hits" has the band bangin', twangin', aaannnd sangin'. This show however should find the band with its mouth shut and amps turned up. Look for Rochester rocker Greg Townson on guitar — he's the one in the mask.

Los Straitjackets plays with The Younger Gang on Wednesday, August 5, at Downstairs Cabaret at Winton Place, 3450 Winton Place. 8 p.m. $20-$25.;
