A Tribute to Rockin’ Roy Loney 

When: Fri., Feb. 21, 8:30 p.m. 2020
Price: $30.00
Roy Loney was one of the most influential musicians of San Francisco’s psychedelic era, emerging with The Flamin’ Groovies in 1965. During their first incarnation, the Groovies cut several albums — including 1969’s Supersnazz and 1971’s Teenage Head — that were vastly influential on the power pop, new wave, and punk bands that followed. Loney left the band in 1978 and formed Roy Loney & The Phantom Movers to cut several more influential, but commercially unsuccessful albums, like 1988’s rockabilly outing The Scientific Bombs Away! Loney was going to rejoin the Groovies for a European tour when he passed away on December 31. His bandmates from The Groovies and Phantom Movers will join Jello Biafra, The Young Fresh Fellows’ Scott McCaughey, Chuck Prophet and other players for this tribute to his life and music.
