THE THIRSTY CROWS
THE THIRSTY CROWS are an American Psychobilly/Rockabilly group from the South Bay area of Los Angeles, California. Thematically their melodically energetic songs tend to revolve around Lovecraftian horror, binge drinking, and acts of revenge.
The band coined the phrase "South Bay Rockabilly" to describe their heavier, fast paced blend of distorted rockabilly, psychobilly, and punk rock musical genres as they were heavily influenced by earlier acts to come out of their hometown area such as Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Pennywise.
THE THIRSTY CROWS have shared the stage many acts including Nekromantix, Koffin Kats, Stellar Corpses, Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker, Wanda Jackson, Guana Batz, The Polecats, Dick Dale, Calabrese, and Deke Dickerson. Additionally they also perform heavily in the rockabilly festival and car show circuit including events such as Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, Rhythm & Rods, and The Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion.
THE THIRSTY CROWS are endorsed by Gretsch guitars, Deuce Bass Co. upright bass bridges, and Shadow Electronics pick ups. On multiple occasions they have also been featured in the time traveling science fiction Western graphic novel Guns A’Blazin’ . Only THE THIRSTY CROWS are pure PsyCrowBilly.
