Slip inside this house, for a Roky Erickson birthday party

I’m going to forego posting any clips from America’s greatest Psychedelic band, the 13th Floor Elevators, and stick to Roky docs and songs from various band configurations from his solo career.

The aptly named Demon Angel: A Day and Night With Roky Erickson has some exceptional footage of Roky solo and with Mike Alvarez on second guitar.

Of course, 2006’s, You’re Gonna Miss Me, remains the defintive Rok doc and also features unbelievable clips, and gets into Roky’s return to mental stability and touring.
