Tonight in Rock in LA - Honky

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Last spring LAist went to SXSW where there were 1,300 bands. Many were good, but a few rose to the top. Local trio Honky was one of the standouts. Dirty, sweaty, down home southern rock in the vein of all your favorites. Like if ZZ Top left behind some tattooed bastard sons out there in La Grange.
