Pre ZZ-Top project Moving Sidewalks reunites, playing Austin Psych Fest and NYC

Moving Sidewalks

Billy Gibbons’s psychedelic project from before his ZZ Top days, The Moving Sidewalks, have reunited and will play two shows in celebration of a new discography due on Rockbeat Records. For the unaware, their history is as follows:

Gibbons founded the Texas psychedelic group in the mid-1960s and quickly drew a large following, especially in the Houston “teen scene”. They recorded several singles and one full-length album, Flash. Their single “99th Floor” was a hit and topped the charts at No. 1 in Houston for six weeks. The success of this record led the Sidewalks to sign with Wand Records which then released “Need Me” which also became a Top 10 Hit. The group was asked to open for many rock tours, including Jimi Hendrix and The Doors.

After Tom Moore and Don Summers were drafted into the United States Army, Gibbons and Mitchell added Lanier Greig and formed the original ZZ Top.-[Wiki]

Those two select dates include the previously discussed Austin Psych Fest appearance and NYC on March 30 at BB Kings with The Headless Horsemen (tickets).

A full stream of the band’s lone LP, Flash, is below.
