The B-52s – La Zona Rosa – 5/15/2010

Austin‘s very own, The Ugly Beats, were a great opener! Their 60s garage rock like Paul Revere & the Raiders meets new wave much in the vein of DEVO, and of course, The B-52s.

And enter The B-52s, who can be described as nothing other than FABULOUS. Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson and Keith Strickland, all over 50 years old, can still get an audience of young and old alike to move and groove to tunes like “Love Shack” and “Rock Lobster.” Wilson and Pierson still have amazing voices, and harmonized over Schneider’s distinct sprechgesang vocals.
