It's fitting that we kick off this year's Corn Lovers Fiesta at the one club that has been a constant since the beginning. The scene of so many previous crimes and thousands of nights of great music, the Hole In The Wall just celebrated its 40th Anniversary and is a true landmark in a rapidly changing city. 9pm - PURPLE STICKPIN featuring T. TEX EDWARDS Purple Stickpin is the latest band project from legendary Dallas proto-punk cum murder balladeer T. Tex Edwards. Tex's career stretches back to the mid-70's having opened for the Sex Pistols at their Dallas show in '78 with his band The Nervebreakers. His extensive discography includes releases on the Get Hip!, Sympathy For The Record Industry, New Rose and Saustex labels. He's been putting the finishing touches on a new garage-flavored disc with the Stickpin. 10pm - THE HARES The Hares are the latest addition to the Saustex roster. This seven piece from the Southside of San Antonio are evocative of rock'n'roll greats including Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino without sounding dated. Their horn fueled, high-octane R & B will get the party moving. Their debut album "Smoking in Bed" is already receiving high praise and airplay around the country. 11pm - WRECKLESS ERIC Wreckless Eric has had a forty year career marked by a relentless DIY ethic and first gained notoriety as part of the Stiff Records stable. His single "The Whole Wide World" was lauded as one of the greatest punk and new wave singles of all time by Mojo Magazine. He is currently touring to promote a series of reissues of his work by Fire Records. Midnight - HICKOIDS The Hickoids finish out an emotional and hectic year of ups and downs with the first of two ACLF appearances. Guitarist Davy Jones will make his first live appearance since being diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer in May, which forced him to forego the band's European tour and miss shows with the band for the first time since joining in 1984. It's going to be a good night. 1am - THE SONS OF HERCULES The Sons make their first ever Corn Lovers appearance to top off the Friday night festivities. The classics of American Punk (New York Dolls, The Stooges and Dead Boys) are all synthesized into The Sons of Hercules sound. Lead singer Frank Pugliese shames front men one-half and one-third his age as a spirited and timeless middle-finger waving catalyst for a band that never disappoints.
