Legendary Shack Shakers – Last Show (?) in Nashville

Legendary Shack Shakers are a punk blues agriDustrial band with a little bit of everything thrown in from rockabilly to gothic rock to Delta blues to Texas polka. Originally hailing from Paducah, Kentucky, the band has been together in some form or fashion for over 15 years touring with the Reverend Horton Heat, Hank Williams III, and Robert Plant.

Their current drummer recently developed a heart condition and actually flat-lined a couple of times. Legendary Shack Shakers decided to hold a benefit show for him in Nashville and make it their last show; however, J.D. Wilkes founding member and frontman said that the Legendary Shack Shakers will rise again.

This video is clips from their last show(?) at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville along with interviews with some of the band members past and present.

Invasion of the Rockabilly Dancers of Tokyo!!!

Takenoko-zoku once ruled Harajuku but during the last decade they were driven off by the police and later replaced by a younger crowd of goth lolita girls.

Some diehards still get together and dance away to old rock-n-roll tunes.
