Gonerfest Daily: Compulsive Gamblers Reunion/Puerto Rican Rock

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2009 at 12:03 PM

Gonerfest 6, the annual garage/punk festival put on by the Cooper-Young-based record store/label continues today, first with a day party at the Buccaneer starting at 2 p.m., then with another full slate of bands at the Hi-Tone Cafe tonight starting at 8 p.m.

You can read our Gonerfest 6 preview here. You can check out the full schedule here. And I've got a handful of record reviews of Gonerfest-connected bands here.

The headliner tonight is the return of ’90s-era Memphis band the Compulsive Gamblers, featuring Greg Cartwright (Oblivians, Reigning Sound) and Jack Yarber (Oblivians, Tearjerkers). They'll take the Hi-Tone stage at 1 a.m.

But here's a taste of a couple of the more intriguing out-of-town acts scheduled for today:

First, the Shitty Beach Boys, the Austin cover band set to open the day party at 2:45. Here they are going through the motions of "Surfin' USA":

Then there's the Puerto Rican band Davila 666, my favorite new-band discovery of the year. They play the Hi-Tone at 11:15 p.m.

A couple of hypnotic videos of songs from their eponymous U.S. debut:

"Bla, Bla, Bla":
