Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in-person, not even watching it on a high-definition Blu-Ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to see rockabilly and punk legends Robert Gordon and Chris Spedding at Reggies Rock Club on Saturday, January 28, at 9 p.m. (up to a $21.18 value, including all fees).
Rockabilly and punk aficionados rejoice as veteran songwriters and six-string legends Robert Gordon and Chris Spedding cover the walls of Reggies Rock Club in virtuoso guitar graffiti. Robert Gordon's Brylcreem guitar styling and southern-fried Presley-esque howl have carried him from wrangling with Link Wray to fronting seminal '70s New York punk band Tuff Darts to a key role in the rockabilly revival scene. Continuing a collaboration established in 1978, English guitar virtuoso Chris Spedding joins Gordon with the warp-speed fretting that has accentuated the hits of Roxy Music, Tom Waits, and Paul McCartney.
From using The Vibrators as a backup band to producing the first Sex Pistols demos, Spedding has also accumulated more punk cred than a safety-pin-bound copy of Steal This Book. Midwestern rockabilly torch-bearers The Honeybees and Reckless Ones kick off the show with driving hootenannies that may cause involuntary pompadours. Reggies's sloped floor and balcony keep sight lines open amid rugged brick walls and graffiti murals.
