Toadies / Los Skarnales at Billy Bob's Texas
Kelly Dearmore Recommends
Back in 1978, England’s infamous punk band the Sex Pistols performed a legendary and violent show at the Longhorn Ballroom, a famous Dallas honky tonk. Over the past few years, alt-rock band the Toadies have fared better playing honky tonks with their own version of menacing rock and sawdust floors. In fact, the Vaden Lewis-led hit makers have played Billy Bob’s Texas on Dec. 30 for a raucous pre-NYE show a few times now. The group has made a habit of hitting country-western venues; the Toadies played dancehalls last year in support of their acoustic record Heretics.
