Following the release of its latest tribute album “What’s So Funny About Peace, Love and Los Straitjackets,” surf-rock guitar instrumentalists Los Straitjackets join forces with legendary producer and singer-songwriter Nick Lowe for an unforgettable on stage collaboration. A noted figure in pop and new wave music, Lowe is best known for his songs "Cruel to Be Kind” and "I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass," as well as his production work with Elvis Costello, for whom he wrote "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding." In his solo career, starting with 1995?s “The Impossible Bird” through to 2011?s “The Old Magic,” he has turned out a fantastic string of albums.

Clad in trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, Los Straitjackets honored Lowe’s amazing melodies with a 13-track tribute album in 2017. Using the music of the Ventures, The Shadows, and with Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, this band has taken its unique, high-energy brand of original rock ‘n roll around the world, delivering its signature guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows.
