Yes, if you really want to experience Rockabilly and Psychobilly subcultures in their full glory, then it’s the west coast and more specifically Los Angeles, California where pin up girls and burlesque is almost mainstream where hooked up hotrods and classic cars are ingrained in the culture and where bands like the afore mentioned Social Distortion play for sold out crowds in arenas in front of an impossibly diverse mix of kids too young to drive along side guys and gals approaching retirement age.
The West Coast is where you’ll find big events like “Viva Las Vegas”, a huge weekend gathering every April where rockabilly and psychobilly fans the world over invade Las Vegas to attend car shows, concerts, burlesque contests, etc.
Now you may be less familiar with Psychobilly but for the music side of things, think Punk Rock mixed with Rockabilly and a big old stand up double bass thrown in.
Rose @Punk Outlaw VIVA LA ROCKABILLY Y PSYCHOBILLY! S, the flag for the indisputable HQ for rockabilly and psychobilly music is firmly planted on the West Coast, where there also happens to be a whole bunch of young Latinos. Maybe, but the more I explore these sister subcultures, the more I think there is a direct cause and effect at work.Way down south, Chile has a big psychobilly scene with the band “Voodoo Zombie” headlining big shows. Even in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean you’ll find a psychobilly scene with bands like the “Hellboat Gamblers”. If you ever visit Buenos Aires hit up the bar “Mundo Bizarro” and hear the band “Los Primitivos”. In places like Bogota, Colombia where classic rock, punk and metal are kings there is an emerging Psychobilly scene. And while you will find an odd smattering of Latinos on the scene here and there in NYC, the Midwest and Texas, if you head West where the scene is much more prevalent and I think you’ll notice that…When I visited Santiago and Valparaiso in 2010 I saw kids wearing “Tiger Army” and “Demented Are Go” band t-shirts and sporting wedge cuts. LA based “Calavera” who helped establish the scene in both Mexico and the U. Just next door in Montevideo, Uruguay is a hell of a rollicking band called “Rudos Wild” that plays a genre of music sometimes called punkabilly, a sound pioneered in the U. In nearby Medellin, a band called “Dorados Rockabilly Trio” is starting to make headway and turning the locals on to the joys of rockabilly. without Latinos in the rockabilly and psychobilly scenes, there essentially would be no scenes.The influence and popularity of the style waned in the 1960s, but during the late 1970s and early 1980s, rockabilly enjoyed a major revival of popularity that has endured to the present, often within a rockabilly subculture.” If you live in California you’ve most likely witnessed the rockabilly subculture in action, though at the time, you may have thought someone was headed to a retro costume party. The guys may sport 60’s styled sideburns, a pompadour hairstyle with rolled up jeans…But it’s no costume, for many across the globe it’s a way of life. maybe white socks with loafers and/or maybe a black leather jacket in an effort to emulate James Dean, Elvis or just a bad-ass “greaser”.
