Spaz out at Spring Fling: Austin-based band to headline campus event

Get ready for a unique, high-energy concert at Spring Fling on March 29. The Spazmatics will be performing at University Blvd. from 6:30- 9:30 p.m.

The Spazmatics, who formed in the spring of 1983, have performed ‘80s music since their inception. The group started when Kevin Stigwood, a physics professor lost a debate over String Theory.

He had to perform “She Blinded Me With Science” by Thomas Dolby during a half-time state basketball championship game.

Stigwood then sought help to make his performance a success.

The Spazmatics were formed with electronic teacher Sidney Baderman (AKA “Sid Sonic”), who had achieved international acclaim in 1981 for his invention of “robot” drums.

Stigwood brought along his special needs brother Cutis on bass, and teacher’s assistant Rusty A. Woosmeir (AKA “The Raw”) on guitar.

The Spazmatics have awesome sounds, styles, and fun dance moves all coming from the 80’s including skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair, and horn-rimmed glasses.

This will be the first time The Spazmatics will perform at  Texas A&M University- Kingsville.

Students  are encouraged to dress up in their best ‘80s outfits and “jam out” to The Spazmatics.
