The Hickoids have had a long and plaid race. Formed in 1984 by guitarist Jukebox and singer Jeff Smith in Austin (Texas), the band quickly began touring Texas first and the United States later.

They gave their first concert opening for Black Flag and The Meat Puppets in San Antonio in March 1984 and then shared the stage with seminal bands such as Scratch Acid, The True Believers, Poison 13, The Offenders and The Butthole Surfers.

Musically they had more in common with West Coast bands like Tex & The Horseheads, The Screamin "Sirens and Blood on the Saddle, so they traveled and played a lot around California with these and other bands, but still playing in their darling Texas.

They will play in the Rock Beer The New room on August 16.
