This is a music blog, but not just any music. It's all about the roots of music. You will not find a lot of pop or mainstream music information here. You will learn about new artists, the up and comers. I want to help them to be heard.
I hope you enjoy the site....RR
Hello again amigos--the Hickoids are heading out for some West Coast dates...Piñata Protest won't be far behind and Glambilly's new album is in the can.
HICKOIDS "LEFT COASTIN' 2011"
HICKOIDS TRAIPSE OFF IN FAMILIAR DIRECTION...
The Hickoids are real happy to be heading out on tour and temporarily beating the Texas heat. We're hitting several of the cities we visited on the "Meet The Grandkids" tour in 2009, a couple of places we haven't played (or been run out of) since the late 1980's and a couple we've never been to before. And we're also thrilled to be sharing the stage with friends at almost every stop including the Blood Drained Cows (featuring Gregg Turner of the Angry Samoans), The Grannies (with Sluggo of Hullabaloo), Lynette Skynyrd, the all-female trib to those Southern Rock icons (featuring Laurie Es and Sylvia Juncosa), Luck Of The Draw and last but not least Greg Davis' Blood On The Saddle.
