Time Out says
Revered for his work with seminal '60s psychedelic rock pioneers the 13th Floor Elevators, Roky Erickson has had a near-miraculous comeback. Long written off as a casualty of drug abuse and mental illness, the Texas cult hero has returned to deliver fierce live performances that have lived up to his formidable legend. The remarkable resurrection continued with the impressive album True Love Cast Out All Evil, a collaboration with Okkervil River in 2010. He'll blow into town to play the Roxy, joined by Austin duo the Hounds of Baskerville.
