Fitzgerald’s is billing this show starring two of Texas’s foremost cowpunk pranksters as “[the] most fun you’ll have with your clothes on”; we know it’s hot, but please, God, do. The Hickoids are freshly returned from a tour that fans can only hope produces future songs; besides squiring Lubbock-based brothers in arms the Beaumonts to their first Nashville gig in 30 years (where they also hoped to teach wannabe outlaw Wheeler Walker Jr. a “lesson”), the San Antonio veterans ventured forth on their first-ever trip to Alaska. The Nashville stop actually had a little more poignant purpose than the Hickoids’ usual profane shenanigans: delivering a few of late guitarist Davy Jones’s possessions to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Their 2016 EP The Out of Towners also stands as a fine memorial to the band’s fallen comrade via the dissolute glory of songs like “Dead In a Motel Room,” plus Roky Erickson and Doug Sahm covers. As for Houston’s own Bastards, keeping their clothes on is never a guarantee, so be prepared to duck.
