Red Elvises 

When: Tue., July 5, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-$15

If Southern Culture on the Skids had grown up under a Communist jackboot while dreaming of America, they might have become the Red Elvises. The Siberian transplants formed in Los Angeles during the mid-'90s behind frontman Igor Yuzov. Like SCOTS, their sound's a free-flowing mix of surf, rockabilly, country and rock, with occasional odd excursions into lounge and gypsy swing, speckled with a country-mouse appreciation of American pop culture ("Twist Like Uma Thurman," "A Kegga Beer and Potato Chips"). Fortunately, there's more to the band than singing "Yabba dabba doo" during "Party Like a Rock Star": They're talented musicians who channel their nostalgia and wonder into catchy, upbeat tunes with knowing theatrical flair. —Chris Parker
