Get High Everybody, Get High
So, enough with the young paying homage to the old. Seems like the old -- well, c'mon, you know what I mean -- can manage just fine on their own.
Several of Dallas' best (and best-known, if you're over, like, 60) bands from the 1960s will reunite on December 30 -- clear your calendars -- for the Second Annual Legends Concert. Among those performing: The Nightcaps, who influenced the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top (the Caps have the lawsuit to prove it); Kenny and the Kasuals (whose "Journey to Tyme" remains one of the earliest and greatest psychedelic-rock freak-outs ever recorded); The Novas; and, no kidding, Nitzinger. The shindig will take place at Poor David's Pub and is being put together by The Big D 60s Yahoo Group. The full schedule's after the jump, but there will also be a reunion of old rockers December 29 at the Stonleigh P, starting at 7 p.m. Tix for the next night's concert are a mere five bucks. Cheaper than a time machine. --Robert Wilonsky
