Hootenanny tix on sale Friday

Get your pompadours, rolled jeans, Pabst Blue Ribbons and Converse ready because the Hootenanny is right around the corner.

This year's lineup includes the Reverend Horton Heat, Los Lobos, Horrorpops, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the Supersuckers, Lee Rocker, the Blasters, 3 Bad Jacks, Roger Alen Wade, Dusty Rhodes and I'm guessing a whole bunch more.

I went to the Hootenanny once and I'm on the fence about how it went. For starters, I despise all-day festivals. The sun is not my friend, I don't like lines, expensive beer makes me angry and the sound always sucks. On the flipside, if you're into rockabilly and all its "'billy" cousins, the Hootenanny's lineup always has something cool. Plus, there are classic cars galore and more ridiculously gorgeous pin-up girls in one place than anywhere on the planet. For that last reason, I'm going to have to say I had a good time.

The show is July 4th at Oak Canyon Ranch (which has to be one of the best locations for an outdoor concert EVER), but you can score a ticket as early as Friday.
