Hillbilly Death Match
Hillbilly Death Match: An Evening with the Rev. Billy C. Wirtz and Ronny Elliott, Friday, Aug. 28, 8 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

General admission tickets are $15 each and are available only from WMNF. For information, visit www.mypalladium.org.

This will be a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable evening of great music, unique subject matter and road stories, from two of the most original voices riding the singer-songwriter circuit today.

The Rev. Billy C. Wirtz is a comic genius, gifted pianist and American musicologist who defies easy classification. No theme is too extreme, taboo, or undignified for Witrz, so long as it garners a good laugh. Goateed and copiously tattooed, he is the antithesis of anyone’s ordinary concept of a preacher. Yet, as his name implies, Wirtz often employs this stage persona to set the scene in a song.

Ronny Elliott insists that both he and rock ‘n’ roll were born in 1947. Frequently referred to as a cult artist, Elliott has stories that he claims to be tired of telling. Elvis offered to teach him karate. He was assigned the lowly task of holding up Hendrix’ Marshall cabinets in case he “whacked” them after opening the show. He has played on bills with Van Morrison, the Allman Brothers, Wilco, Sly & The Family Stone, Michael Bloomfield, Canned Heat, Steve Miller, NRBQ, Patti Smith, Pete Seeger, Steve Earle and lots of other folks that he looks up to.

He has toured with Bo Diddley and Bill Haley and the Comets and backed Chuck Berry, the Coasters and Gene Vincent on tour. The self-proclaimed hillbilly soul singer who reaches into the deep American well of rock’n’roll and R&B to bring a gritty brand of dark-hued story songs to the stage, Elliott recently released his ninth solo CD, “I’ve Been Meaning To Write.” He continues to tour, record and gripe.

To Willum’s dismay, Rick turns out to be an incredibly inept and dimwitted “nerd” who overstays his welcome with a vengeance. The evening and Willum’s life quickly dissolve into insanity.

An Evening with the Mojo Gurus
An Evening with the Mojo Gurus, Saturday, Aug. 29, 8 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. General admission tickets are $10 in advance and $13 the day of the show. For information, visit www.mypalladium.org.

This show will be recorded for a live release. The Mojo Gurus are making their presence known from Tampa to Tottenham. The band’s sound – high-octane energy of 1960s rock and early roots rock with their “have-a-good-time-all-the-time” vibe – is an infectious combination.

“Where You Hidin’ Your Love,” the first single from the band’s album “Who Asked Ya?”, is a horn driven, funk rocker that was produced by Tommy Henricksen. The record was mastered by Stephen Marsh.

The Mojo Gurus have previously released three critically acclaimed records, worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Jack Douglas, played with acts as diverse as Joe Perry, David Allan Coe, Blackberry Smoke, Johnny Winter, and built their reputation on their live performances.
