The Trashmen at The Warsaw
The Trashmen are surely best known nowadays for their 60's hit "Surfin' Bird". It was no great surprise to learn that a band which just spent months touring Europe still sound really good. What was surprising was seeing drummer Mark Andreason drumming while standing a couple of times. He even started running around the stage near the end of the show! Rock-n-Roll must be keeping these boys feelin' young.
The A-Bones at The Warsaw
Opening for legendary artists like The Trashmen is probably fairly easy for these guys. After all the A-Bones includes Billy and Miriam of Norton Records, an indie label which puts out garage and retro rock-n-roll by both older and modern bands. They probably send Christmas cards to bands like that. They can keep up with 'em in the rockin'-n-rollin' department too. In the last few shots they are joined by The Great Gaylord (musician and WFMU DJ).
