Moe's Alley proudly presents the long awaited return of Los Straitjackets from Nashville Tenessee.

Mixing the familiar sounds of Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, and the Ventures, los Straitjackets create their own version of energetic surf guitar twang complete with Mexican wrestling masks. Los Straitjackets began in the summer of 1988. Eddie Angel (guitar), L.J. "Jimmy" Lester (drums), and Danny Amis (guitar) formed an instrumental trio called the Straitjackets, which played local Nashville shows throughout the summer. After a six-year hiatus, the Straitjackets reunited, added E. Scott Esbeck on bass and changed their name to los Straitjackets. In November 1994, the band signed with Upstart Records. They released their first single, "Gatecrasher" b/w "Lonely Apache," on Sympathy for the Record Industry in February 1995. In March 1995, the band's first album, The Utterly Fantastic and Totally Unbelievable Sound of los Straitjackets, was released on Upstart. That summer the band went on its first major U.S. tour. In June 1996, the band released its second album, íViva!; The Velvet Touch of los Straitjackets followed in 1999 and Damas y Caballeros! surfaced two years later. The mysterious musos decided to move on to holiday music the next year, and tackled several Christmas favorites on the fun 'Tis the Season for los Straitjackets! Supersonic Guitars in 3-D arrived in 2003, followed by a collection of outtakes, live tracks, and rarities called Vivos y los Raros in 2004. Twist Part dropped in 2006.



I saw them at Slim's doing their Christmas Pageant Show a couple of years ago, it was great.

A couple of the FI crowd will be there at a minimum.

Mahalo.

I got my tix!!! If you have not seen this band DO NOT MISS THEM!! These guys are smokin hot and if you do not plan to be at this years Hukilau your gonna miss 'em. If you have seen them but have not seen 'em at Moe's Alley you'll be in for a treat as this is a tiny venue. I saw their last show here about 5 years ago and they blew the roof off the place...

Anybody know if they're doing any shows in SF proper?
Looked at their site and on myspace and didn't see anything.
