Valentine’s Ball on Saturday featuring Frantic Flintstones – psychobilly legends from UK - and more

 Fans have been looking forward to this event for months, and now it’s almost here. The Second Annual Valentine’s Ball takes place this weekend with a concert on Saturday February 13 featuring the legendary Frantic Flintstones (UK), The Swampy’s (Belgium), Mad Marge and the Stonecutters (Victorville), Stellar Corpses (Santa Cruz), and Dr. Bizarro’s Victims (San Fernando Valley).

There will also be a meet and greet with Frantic Flintstones and some of the other bands at Bigfoot Lodge in Los Feliz on Thursday February 11th at 10 PM, and an in-store at Red Zone in the Panorama City Mall on Friday February 12th at 6 PM (see the bottom of this article for details on all these related events).

Much of the anticipation is due to the headliner: Frantic Flintstones is one of those legendary UK 1980s psychobilly bands that appeals to fans who have been into this music for decades as well as people who are newer to the scene and just discovering the innovators of the genre. Members throughout the years have also played with The Meteors, Morrissey, and Guana Batz, among other famous rockabilly/psychobilly bands. Check out their MySpace page for an entertaining history of all the line-up changes – and drugs/booze – this band has gone through. Don’t miss this chance to see Frantic Flintstones, since you never know when they’ll make it back to LA again.
