Many credit English band The Meteors as being the first true psychobilly band — they were shunned by rockabilly crowds early on for their wildly colored hair and punk ’tude, but few could have predicted that P. Paul French’s band would all but invent a whole new sub genre that would later incorporate the likes of Nekromantix and the Koffin Kats. Now, there’s no shortage of festivals and events that they can perform at which just goes to show — if you don’t like the way things are, do something new. In the live environment, they are phenomenal though it’s about time we got some new studio material after 2016’s The Power of 3. The Bastards open for them at this Sunset Strip gig.
The Meteors plays with The Bastards and The Pawns at 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 14 at the Whisky A Go Go.
