Las Drogas is a swaggering and stripped down Ypsilanti, MI garage rock band specializing in foot-stompin', swampy, garage-a-billy, greasy rock & roll that's heavily influenced by the primitive roots of rock and roll that goes way back to the 50's & 60's. The band combines this greasy blackened-blooze concoction with humorous and animated on-stage banter that crowds go wild over.
