w11We were fortunate enough to see Rosie Flores at The Waco Brothers show at The Broken Spoke. Rosie is the former front-lady for the 1970s alt-country Rosie and the Screamers and was later part of the all-female ‘cow-punk” band Screamin’ Sirens in the 1980s. She has long been an important part of the Austin music scene, but has also toured the world with considerable success.  Some of her well deserved honors: Austin, TX named August 10 as “Rosie Flores Day” in 2006; As part of Asleep at the Wheel, she received two awards by the Academy of Country Music in 1997; Two Ameripolitan Awards in 2014 (Top Honky Tonk Female and Top Rockabilly Female); and numerous more awards and nominations. In 2012, she was part of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Tribute to Chuck Berry. Rosie has also appeared on several TV shows (Austin City Limits and Late Night with Conan Obrien) and in the 1993 movie “The Thing Called Love”.

(Johnny Cole first saw Jon Langford ‘with The Mekons” in the 1980s at CBGB in New York City; Rosie Flores is a true music original in every since of the world and it’s always an honor to see her.)
