So-Cal’s “Hootenanny” Gears Up For No. 19.

The annual funfest that bundles rock ’n’ roll with classic cars returns for its 19th year with Social Distortion, Face To Face, Murder By Death, Old 97’s, Nashville Pussy and more.

Set for July 6 at the Oak Canyon Ranch near Irvine, Calif., the one-day event will also feature local vendors, food & drink and the Hootenanny Pinup Contest, culminating with the selection of “Sullen Angel Miss Hootenanny.”

Celebrating our automotive heritage, Hootenanny will be up to its gears in “Kustom” as in Kustom cars, Kustom Kulture artists, pinstripers and painters.  Not to be missed is the festival’s live “chop top” demo at the car show.
