We made our way up to the balcony seating to get a bird’s-eye view of the night’s crescendo, Reverend Horton Heat. These guys know how to entertain, opening up their set with the fast-paced and mental “Psychobilly Freakout.” They kept the surf-rockabilly-punk mo’ going full-tilt to the end.
We’re not sure what’s next for Mods vs. Rockers in 2014, but you can bet we’ll keep it tuned to ModsVsRockersChicago.com to find out. We’ve been proud sponsors and supporters for years, with much appreciation to the guys at Steel Toe Press for putting on a motorcycle-centric weekend of fun.
The event goes well beyond just bikes; it builds upon the nostalgia and culture created by rebellious and blue-collar motorcyclists who used fast motorcycles and rock ’n’ roll to escape the monotony of the masses. We can get behind that.
Will you be there next year? Well, here are even more pics to tempt you…and there are tons more in our Facebook gallery.
