"Join The Brooklynite as they give the gift of the islands with their Tiki Yuletide Party! The crew at BK wants to bring the warmth of the Hawaiian islands to San Antonio for their last big bash of 2014. The team has arranged for the smooth surf and garage sounds of King Pelican to permeate the air as they craft fruity, boozy libations with spirits like Monkey Shoulder, Sailor Jerry, Ancho Reyes, Milagro, and Flor de Caña rums. One of SAs newest food trucks, LocaVore, will be offering a super special tiki menu that will focus on a whole Kahula pig. Accompanying the fine swine will be sides like pineapple kimchee, wasabi calamari, purple potato salad, and island mac and cheese. As always, Tiki Tuesday means guests are encouraged to don their tikiest of tiki garb. This is sure to be a wicked rad event, with food, music and garnish-heavy tiki cocktails to celebrate the season in a unique and fun way."
Here's a link to our music on Bandcamp. Thanks for the space SG101.
With your help we are hoping to return to Italy to play for the first time since the 90s. Airfare is extremely expensive for five of us, and since we don't all live in the same state anymore or play regularly together, we need your help to make this dream of ours a reality while making it possible to see our overseas fans, friends and family and to release unreleased and obscure material.
When you back the project at a $30 level, you'll get a 26 song cd months before it is officially released. That's about $1.15 a song-not very much more than the average song download price! You'll get our very first basement recordings that were only released on a cassette in Portland. You'll get never before heard songs like "Mr. Beatle" and "One Potato, Two Potato" and others. You'll get to hear rare numbers like "Nowheresville" that only appeared on a local cassette compilation with Eliot Smith and the NW rocker, "House Party", plus lots if other non-album tracks from the 90s and a couple of live ones from the SG101 Convention in 2011. We've been working really hard to make this a cool collection that would be a nice reward for backing our project, along with the other new items we have as rewards. We want you to be a part of it and be the first kids on the block to have the new release by Satan's Pilgrims, "Frankenstomp". Thank you!
Mike from Green Cookie Records is generously donating five copies of the compilation CD "Search for Atlantis" for our latest contest. Five lucky winners will be chosen, so enter today. Good luck! Thanks Mike!
Reverberati - Combat Surf CD (Double Crown Records)
Reverberati were an Italian surf/instro band that lasted just a short period of time, but created a bit of buzz. This amazing 10 song CD, with one untitled bonus track, saw limited release a few years ago as a CD-R. Sadly, it didn't get wider distribution at the time, but we're here to fix that situation. The four-piece combo really ripped it up in the studio, laying down a steller set of recordings featuring the talents of Lorenzo "Surfer Joe" Valdambrini on drums. But let's not forget the crunchy, reverby twin guitar attack of Fufu or Claude, or the low, driving bass of Falo. Great performances and songwriting abound. Of course, coming from Italy, you know there's gotta be a spaghetti western influence as well, most notably shown with the tune "Zako". Cover art comes from the always amazing Fred Lammers.
Tracks: Combat Surf - Re-Verse - 77 - Rotowash - Zako - Reverbero Twist - Roadster - Fishbone - Los Gatos - The Grand Duel - Untitled

"WaveSauce has the best use of the Theremin ever seen! Best thing to
happen to surf music since Man or Astroman." - Audio Gasoline
Wavesauce is a Portland based band entertaining audiences with their intriguing and dynamic interpretations of surf, spyfi, and Amercian pulp. Technically an instrumental band, WaveSauce employs the sounds of a Theremin to fill the role traditionally met by a lead vocalist.
Their new album, "Stop Go!" offers a unique sound that is cornered by a driving rhythm section, locked to create a backdrop appropriate for classic cruisin'. This groove is synced with solid rhythm guitar, which capably bursts into the foreground with sonic leads throughout the varied tracks. Capped by the beautiful and haunting melodies of the Theremin, the result provides the listeners with the sensation of hopping on a board to catch a gentle wave, only to find themselves blasted into another cosmic dimension. When "Stop Go!" hits the turntable, hold on tightly to the mothership, and simply enjoy the ride.
"Stop Go!" was recorded and mixed by Carlos Severe Marcelin at "House of Tomato Studios" and consists of original material and covers. Entering the recording process, the primary goal of the band was to capture the energy and spirit of their live performance. WaveSauce believes "Stop Go!" successfully achieves this goal.
For further information about the band, release party tickets, and purchasing the CD, visit www.wavesauce.com. Analog Café & Theater is located at 720 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, Oregon, and online at www.analogpdx.com.
Just announced! Alameda, CA surf rock trio Aloha Screwdriver's 4-song 7" record is now available direct from the band and through Double Crown Records.
The record is pressed on purple vinyl, and like all our previous releases it was recorded live to tape and mixed to tape for an unmistakeable analog sound.
The songs are vinyl-exclusive, so don't hold your breath for an iTunes or Spotify version. A streaming version of the first song can be heard here.
