Enter the Psychobilly Luau - if you dare

By Meredith Deliso

Killer clowns. Go-go dancers. Rockin’ hot rods.

The third annual Psychobilly Luau will be taking over Gowanus in all its revved up, punk-rock glory on July 18, with a day of music, cars and more at The Bell House.

Headlining the affiar are San Diego-based psychobilly rockers Deadbolt (pictured), the self-proclaimed scariest band in the world, making their first New York City performance in a decade.

Also on the bill are creepy crypt rockers Memphis Morticians (based in, surprisingly, right here in New York City), Psychocharger, Tombstone Brawlers, The Arkhams, The Wanda Jackson 5, The Designer Drugs, and Soul Reapin’ 3.

Beyond music, the stage at the amped up luau will also be host to killer clowns, courtesy of Clown Kong, go-go and burlesque by Brooklyn Baby Doll, a fashion show by Enz’s, and DJ sets by Laura Rebel Angel, Jukebox Jodi, and The Dutchman.

A special “Psychobily Luau” comic book will also be on hand by artists Mort Todd (Back From The Grave, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth Comics) and Laura Rebel Angel), and anyone who arrives via hot rod will receive the edition for free.

While most of the action will take place indoors, the luau will also feature a sidewalk BBQ.

It all starts at 3 p.m. at The Bell House (149 7th St.). Tickets are $20 in advance, available for purchase at, or $25 at the door.
