I've never seen these guys live but I've heard nothing but rave reviews. They've got a song simply called "Bacon", so they have to be somewhat excellent. Here's a chance to see for yourself when the Red Elvises return to Missoula.

  • Featuring: Three Eared Dog @ 6 p.m., Monk & The Mothers @ 7
  • Friday, July 18th

From the Badlander press release:

Igor & the Red Elvises have been conquering the hearts of screaming fans all over the world for over fifteen years with diverse, upbeat music and amusing lyrics that demand (quite literally at times) that you "shake your ass". With multiple tours every year all over America, Europe, Russia and other countries, this traveling rock and roll party is constantly in motion. They are consistently evolving,, and known to be extremely talented,, over--the-top showmen, complete with outrageous costumes and personalities to match. Igor & Red Elvises have maintained their independent status by declining several major record deals, instead producing all their own work.

The Badlander invites you to experience this Missoula community showcase of talent at Cara's Park Pavilion. This is the first, of hopefully many, Badlander in the Park Musical Series featuring talent that needs to be experienced. Beyond our two venues in the downtown area, The Badlander Bar and The Palace Lounge, the Badlander wishes to expand its reach in Missoula offering shows to audiences that might not be able to join late night shows downtown.
