Rock Baby Rock It

Pairing the scorching Houston weather with rockabilly’s top names, Rock Baby Rock It is a local tradition with flames along the sides. This weekend’s extravaganza marks Rock Baby’s 17th edition, making it one year older than its host (the first year was at the Fabulous Satellite Lounge). For this year’s pièce de résistance, Friday night Edgar “Big E” Salazar has invited the surviving members of storied Mexican ’60s rockers Los Johnny Jets. Singer Oscar Hernandez and drummer Raúl Galván will be joined onstage by Raúl’s son Felipe’s beloved H-Town vatos rudos Los Skarnales, with Monterrey’s El Tomcat y Los Rock n’ Roll Combo on hand to open. Saturday showcases historic Texas soul with legendary San Antonio Chicano singer Rudy Tee Gonzales & King Pelican, the pond-crossing appeal of British-born Rockin’ Lloyd Tripp and his Austin-based Zip Guns, plus Houston’s Luxurious Panthers, ex-Houstonians the Octanes and a pair of Rock Baby first-timers, Austin’s Colton Turner and Dallas’s The Left Eye Jumper. If Friday can’t come soon enough, Thursday night’s Rock Baby-themed record hop at the Big Top Lounge would make a fine-table-setter.
