There’s a show at El Torreon — yes, El Torreon! — tomorrow night
These days, many people know El Torreon — formerly the Cowtown Ballroom — as the Cowtown Mallroom, a gathering of vintage oddities that’s hosted every Sunday afternoon. But it looks like El Torreon is still hosting concerts. In fact, there’s one this Thursday. We caught up with R.L. Brooks of Maps for Travelers about the show.
The Pitch: Hasn’t it been quite a while since people played there?
R.L. Brooks: Yeah, we middle-aged rockers know it as the El Torreon — where I got my head kicked in for seven years in a row going to hardcore shows as a kid.
