On
March 20th SXSW will host its fourth annual Ponderosa Stomp showcase at the
Continental Club in Austin,
TX. P-Stomp curator Ira Padnos
has assembled an incredible lineup for the Stomp Revue. Highlights include
Barbara Lynn, whose hit “Oh Baby (We’ve Got A Good Thing Goin’)” was
covered by The Rolling Stones; “Treat Her Right” wild man Roy Head;
legendary garage acts The Elite and Floyd Dakil; and enigmatic psych pioneers
Silver Apples. “One of Rolling Stone’s top 5 radio stations the in the
country, New Orleans’
WWOZ, will air a live broadcast from the venue. 

 

 

Committed
to sharing “rock’s secret history” (Wall Street Journal), The
Ponderosa Stomp continues to carry out its mission of giving the unsung heroes
of rockabilly, soul, funk, gospel, blues, rhythm and blues, and garage rock
their due. Other artists scheduled to appear include Eli “Paperboy”
Reed and the True Loves who will perform with Barbara Lynn; Dallas / Fort Worth
garage legends The Elite and The Excels; blues guitar maulers Little Joe
Washington, Lil’ Buck Senegal, and Classie Ballou; classic Texas rockabilly
from Huelyn Duvall; and Austin band Eve and The Exiles.

 

 

In
addition, Dr. Ira “Dr. Ike” Padnos will appear on a panel entitled
Music Festivals: Risks & Rewards, March 19 at 3:30pm at the Austin Convention
Center, Room 15. Also, Roy Head, backed by The
Bo-Keys, will do a set at Little Steven’s Underground Garage Party at Antone’s
(213 W 5th St.)
that afternoon.

 

 

Of
2006’s SXSW showcase, the Austin American-Statesman declared, “If there
was another set during the whole SXSW with more passion, sweat, commitment,
resonance and sheer, unalloyed fun, I’d like to know what it was.” In
2007, the Austin Chronicle proclaimed that the Stomp showcase “proved that
not only are these artists still vital, they move audiences in ways that others
can’t.”

 

 

This
year’s eighth annual Ponderosa Stomp Festival will be held April 28th and 29th
at the House of Blues in New Orleans.
Jon Pareles of The New York Times called the Ponderosa Stomp “a party on
its way to becoming an institution,” while The LA Times’ Steve Hochman
called it “a wail of a time.” The Ponderosa Stomp continues to
elevate some of America’s
most pioneering performers by bringing their names back into the spotlight and
creating incredible, once-in-a-lifetime on-stage collaborations.
