Angel City has been taking place now for over a decade, twice a year. During that time, the entire family and crew have been working hard on some new ideas that will blow you away. This Spring, Angel City plans to take us all back to Wild Bill’s Wild West Show! We continue to listen to everyone that has been coming for years to Angel City. Over time, we have added some very interesting and fun entertainment to the mix, and this Spring even offers that much more! It’s time to ride that Iron Horse to town each day to participate in everything from the mechanical bull, to our “Rowdy Gents” Man Games, to our Bike Show and now a Hot Rod Rodeo; a traditional rod and kustom show. We will be bringing back some of our vixens for the late night cage dancing, to the world famous Captain and Maybelle “Vagabond Side Show”.
The main stage, hosted by Garage71’s “Big Boy”, will have a national artist line-up bigger that Angel City has ever seen. From Rockabilly to Southern Rock, this line-up is the BEST yet!!! You can check out the sneak releases beginning in January 2019 of our entertainment. You can expect some returning artists as well as some amazing award winning talent that some may have seen on national TV show like; “The Voice” and ‘Real Country’: For USA Network’s Music Competition Series. Connect with us on social media at Facebook and Instagram.
Keep watching here are we begin to provide you weekly updates all the way up to the minute. It’s time for the Spring Angel City Wild West Kustom Kulture Rally & Music Fest!
*Kustom Kulture is a neologism used to describe the artworks, vehicles, hairstyles, and fashions of those who drove and built custom carsand motorcycles in the United States of America from the 1950s through today. It was born out of the hot rod culture of Southern California of the 1960s.
In the early days of hot rodding, many fashions and styles developed. Over time, each of these distinct styles of customizing have blended and reshaped our everyday life. Artists such as Von Dutch (Kenny Howard), Robert Williams, and custom car builder Ed “Big Daddy” Roth; along with Lyle Fisk, Dean Jeffries; hot rod and lowrider customizers such as the Barris Brothers (Sam and George Barris); along with numerous tattoo artists, automobile painters, and movies and television shows such as American Graffiti and The Munsters (The Munster Koach, DRAG-U-LA) have all helped to form what is known as Custom Culture.
Custom Culture is usually identified with the greasers of the 1950s, the drag racers of the 1960s, and the lowriders of the 1970s. Other subcultures that have had an influence on Custom Culture are the Skinheads, mods and rockers of the 1960s, the punk rockers of the 1970s, the metal and rockabilly music, along with the scooterboys of the 1980s, and psychobilly of the 1990s. Each separate culture has added their own customizations to the cars, their own fashions, influenced the music, and added their own ideas of what is cool, what is acceptable, and what is not. Everything from wild pinstriped paintjobs, to choptop Mercurys, to custom Harley-Davidson and Triumphmotorcycles, to metal-flake and black primer paint jobs, along with music, cartoons, and monster movies have influenced what defines anyone and anything who is part of this automobile subculture.
