Heading into the Roky Erickson show at Fender and FILTER Magazine’s party in New Orleans Saturday night at One Eyed Jack’s, there was buzz surrounding the iconic Big Easy bar for one of the godfathers of psychedelic rock.
And the Texas singer/songwriter came through in spades, tearing through a set that had metal horns raised from the raucous crowd, hungry to see him.
Erickson played a few tracks off 2010′s album, True Love Cast Out All Evil, including a fiery “John Lawman.”
But Erickson seethed and scorched the stage with some of his classics, as well.
“Stand for the Fire Demon” and “Don’t Slander Me” were examples of Erickson’s sharp-as-a-dagger vocals and emphatic guitar riffs.
Erickson has a few tour dates scheduled for this summer, so check his official website at http://rokyerickson.net/ for more information.
