RockOn! Chuco Town
If you want rock & roll, then El Paso is the place to be right now! Serving up sounds that scintillate the savage in all of us, RockOn El Paso has been putting underground rock back on peoples calenders. When asked why they do what they do (struggling to put on free rock shows), the response was simple and to the point “I want El Paso to be able to go out and enjoy a free show, not only a free show but a damn good show”. The sentiment was mirrored by acts that have already performed for the RockOn crowd, “basically man, we just want to play for people who want to listen” said one band member.
RockOn El Paso tries to attain venues for up and coming bands in the El Paso area primarily. Sounds such as The Lusitania, L.I.G.R.E., Low Luster League, Ralpheene, Biscuit Roller, Attaks, Emily Davis and The Altar Boys, Mexicans at Night, Bumpstreet Fonanza have torn the stages and the list goes on and continues to grow. RockOn El Paso strives to bring in sounds from near and yet also from afar like Burning Hotels(Ft.Worth, TX), Cumbia Machin(San Diego,CA), Outernational(New York city), Tidal Waves(South Africa), Tornado Rider(Oakland, CA) and again much more. It’s a good time for the music scene in Chuco Town, the history of music in El Paso is rich and is proving to be alive and well. Long live Chuco Town and long live RockOn El Paso.
