The Texas Tornados/Red Meat 

When: Fri., June 17, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $25

Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender are gone, but The Texas Tornados rock on. The current band includes Augie Meyers, Flaco Jimenez, and Shawn Sahm, who fills in for his dad on vocals and guitar, as well as longtime cohorts Louie Ortega (guitar), Speedy Sparks (bass), and Ernie Durawa (drums). The band's new album, ¡EstaBueno!continues the band's tradition of gritty Tex-Mex rock without a single misstep, and includes the recordings Fender cut just before he died. Expect them to play plenty of old favorites with enough energy to tear the house down. Local roots-rock favesRed Meat open. At Slim's (333 11th Street, San Francisco) on Friday, June 17. 8:30 p.m., $25.
