IT IS TIME! ROKY ERICKSON, KING OF THE BEASTS, WALKS THE EARTH AND ALSO THE EL REY THEATRE ONCE MORE!
Below, find the five star-favored supplicants who chose awesome movies that Roky would probably totally write a song about, as determined by our exhaustive review of one billion accumulated Roky live tapes and testing out potential choruses ourselves, too. (“Fiiiiiiiiiiend … without a face!”) Congratulations to these true rok ‘n’ rollers, who we will see tonight when Roky plays and we get to DJ!
And thanks so much to the rest of you who entered. We got amazing things and it was so hard to pick! If you’d still like to go, get tickets here, and you can also come visit us at our free afterparty at the Monty at 1222 W. 7th St. afterward!
JESSICA S. – BASKET CASE
Could completely hear Roky explaining this plot to someone in an interview, ideally L.A. RECORD!
ROBIN F. – HOUR OF THE WOLF
Would have fit in perfect as a just-post The Evil One live track!
JOSE G. – FIEND WITHOUT A FACE
This just … “SCREAMS” Roky!
LAENA G. – THE BRAIN
This is hilarious and awesome. When we think of Roky, we think of … this happening. PLUS the one character even LOOKS kinda like Roky!
GUY B. – HAUSU
An ultimate classic. We couldn’t find the cat-piano-severed-limbs scene but man, if this wouldn’t inspired a Roky song … what would?
