Download: Roky Erickson Wish List Set List


Roky Erickson is playing the El Rey on Halloween with a new backing band—the Black Angels!—and new songs in the set list! So far we have heard that “May The Circle Be Unbroken,” “Reverberation,” “Don’t Fall Down” and “Rollercoaster” are all likely candidates. But we have made the below podcast of our favorite alternate and seldom-played Roky classics just in case they find their way into his set!

“Mine Mine Mind” from The Evil One
“Don’t Slander Me” from Don’t Slander Me
“For You” (live) from Casting The Runes
“The Damn Thing” from Don’t Slander Me
“Sweet Honey Pie” (live) from Gremlins Have Pictures
“Click Your Fingers Applauding The Play” from Gremlins Have Pictures
“Haunt” from Don’t Slander Me
“Can’t Be Brought Down” from Don’t Slander Me
“Wake Up To Rock ‘n’ Roll” (live) from Halloween: Live ’79-’81
“Right Track Now” from Epitaph For A Legend

Much excellent Roky discography info at this website. Tickets for Roky are available here and we will see you Friday!
