I Just Wanna' Dance!

Too often it seems that true Rockabilly nightlife is dead. Kaput. Finito.
Do you know what I mean?
For starters, check THESE guys out!
When was the last time you rocked this hard??
Or have you ever?
Sure, there are several spots in Austin that knock your socks off on a pretty regular basis, so I'm not pointing fingers there.
However, the rest of the country seems to be lacking in joints where you can really jump & jive...

New York does a pretty fantastic job with their club, Swing 46.

This commercial may have a high cheese factor, but it is still one of my favorite spots in the Big Apple.

I just feel like music was SO integral in the original Rockabilly culture, and now, too often we find ourselves sporting the look without having any ties to our musical roots.

My boyfriend and I have close to 1,000 vinyl records, most of which being oldies, but goodies.
I'll be sure to spotlight some of our favorite Rockabilly musicians on this blog over the course of the next few months ...

But I would love to hear some of your musical suggestions! Also, where do you go when you really want to swing? Throw some worthwhile Rockabilly bars my way, and I'll be sure to visit!

(I'm especially keen to San Francisco suggestions at the moment, for obvious reasons ;)

Ciao for now!


  1. Harry Denton's Starlight Room sounds like a great place, but the website has photos of total wankers.

  2. Rockabilly shows at the Verdi Club, the Haight Street Hop the first Friday of the month, the Knockout (tiny dance floor) or anywhere Rockin' Raul, Tanoa or Oran are DJing in SF.
