Today I was going through one of my hard drives, and I came across some pretty cool photos, of a pretty cool town. Back in 2009, I traveled to Austin for the Texas Rockabilly Revival. There were some fantastic bands, and some even more fantastic folks.

Drive Invasion 2013

September 3, 2013 — Leave a comment

If it’s Labor Day weekend, you know it’s time for that annual parking lot party, DRIVE INVASION. It was either the 15th or 14th year for the event, depending on who you ask, at Atlanta’s Starlight Drive-In. It’s all about bands, booze, and b-movies.

Starting off the show was Ghost Riders Car Club… and a final appearance by the nearly-famous Ernie Dale.
