718-230-0236

At the risk of sounding crass, Roky Erickson is one of those people you kinda can't believe is still actually alive. A founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators, whose "You're Gonna Miss Me" was a major touchstone in the development of psych-rock, Erickson logged some time in a mental hospital in the late-60s, became obsessed with the postal service, got arrested for stealing marijuana, then again for stealing mail, all while at the same time achieving legendary status among rock nerds.
