UPDATE 7-5-12: I just learned that this show has been cancelled. Tex says he's hoping to bring Purple Stickpin to Santa Fe sometime later this year.
A pretty nice consolation prize though: Big Sandy & The Fly-Rite Boys are scheduled that night at Santa Fe Sol.

This should be an amazing show:
Purple Stickpin, featuring T. Tex Edwards (The Nervebreakbreakers, Out on Parole, The Swingin' Cornflake Killers, etc.) and Santa Fe's own Tommy Trusnovic (Monkeyshines, The Hickoids, Blood Drained Cows, The Floors, 27 Devils Joking), will play The Underground, or as oldtimers call it "Evangelos' Basement.) on Friday the 13th.
Opening are Chango and Monkeyshines.
I don't know what the cover is, but The Underground usually is pretty reasonable.
