For many, rock 'n 'roll has never been quite the same since the 1950s heyday when combos like The Trashmen and shocking artists like Screamin' Jay Hawkins were at the peak of their powers.
Psychobilly is a genre that takes the simplicity of this early form and adds a garish B movie-inspired twist to the aesthetic.
From March 15th to the 17th, the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles will be playing host to a festival called The Klubfoot USA, which is dedicated to bands of this ilk.
Some of the headliners include Mad Sin, Frantic Flintstones and The Klingonz - with younger acts like The Whammy also showcased.
Ticket prices start at just $60 for one-day entry, while a full festival pass can be purchased for $150.
Residents at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles will find that they are able to get to the venue in just 20 minutes by car or taxi - so it could be the perfect place to spend the evenings.
