Legendary psychedelic rocker Roky Erickson appears at the Casbah on October 5. While Erickson never scored a hit record in a career spanning more than five decades, there have been books, tribute albums and even a documentary about his troubled life. In the years since he first recorded with iconic 1960’s era Texas band, The 13th Floor Elevators, he has become a revered figure in music, inspiring legions of musicians in his wake. His best known song remains 1966 garage rock evergreen, “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” but wherever you dip into his catalog of group or solo recordings you’ll turn up plenty of inspired gems.
