"Rebel Beat" - the first documentary about LA Rockabilly

24 April 2009
The firts documentary about LA Rockabilly "Rebel Beat" is released and will be viewed tonight at Riverside Film Fest.

"Rebel Beat: The Story of LA Rockabilly" chronicles the story of L.A. rockabilly, from 50s cowboy rockers like Glen Glenn, revivalists like Ray Campi who invaded the '70s LA punk with his slappin' bass, to legends like Big Sandy and Dave Gonzales, to today's Barrio-Billy spicing up the mix with rockin' cumbias. The laid back cousin of psychobilly, LA Rockabilly is a low-fi, sexy culture with a passion for its retro roots, captured by "Rebel Beat" at car shows, swap meets, barbecues, barrio cafes and hidden juke joints - far from the Sunset Strip - before pulling up to the West Coast's biggest rockabilly party: Viva Las Vegas. "Rebel Beat" includes interviews with over 40 musicians, promoters, DJ's, sceneters, car customizers, and dancers and features rare archival photos, vintage TV clips, pinups and music, all highlighting the music, fashion, cars, pomps, ink and dance moves of LA Rockabilly.
