2 Days Bay Area Surf Music Event

Submitted by PolloGuitar on July 25, 2011.
Show Announcements

Flyer

You say love surf music, and you're hungry? Over the August 6/7 weekend, you are very lucky! The Surfin' Smorgasboard at The Forbidden Island and The International Reverb BBQ at the Hotel Utah will satiate your desires, a delicious combination of Surf AND Turf!


The Second Surfin' Smorgasboard and Pig Roast at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge! Facebook Event Page
$10 - Saturday August 6, 1-6 PM, 1304 Lincoln Ave, Alameda CA

Headlining, all the way from Rome, The Bradipos IV. Their sound is Vespas and Morricone, Bardot-a-go-go and Sixties Beach Party. This is their first USA tour.

The Secret Samurai work the antipodal influences of passionate Spanish guitar and frenetic Japanese Eleki into a heavy and aggressive trio sound. This is not Gidget's surf music, but an evolution of Dick Dale's crunchy Middle Eastern melodies. The Secret Samurai released their second CD, "Zanshin" earlier this year.

The Surfside IV come to us from Phoenix Arizona, where there's about a thousand miles of beach before you hit the ocean, for an exclusive Northern California appearance. They are red-Fez wearin' lads with a garage-party dance beat. 

From San Pablo CA come The Deadbeats, the youngest surf band on the scene. Their style is blistering, ear popping, speed surf. Their new CD, "Day of the Deadbeats" will be available at the show.

Don't wait in line, buy early from Brown Paper Tickets!

Authentic Hawaiian pig roast by Oakland's Chop Bar (with vegetarian option). Pig roast not included in entrance fee. 



The Intenational Reverb BBQ @ The Hotel Utah Facebook Event Page
$10 - Sunday, August 7, 2–6PM, Fourth and Bryant, San Francisco.

The IRBBQ is proud to present as headliner, all the way from Wiesbaden, Germany The Razorblades. Known for their precise execution, and thunderous assault, their new CD is called "Gimme Some Noise"; this is their first USA tour.

All the way from Las Vegas, the return of one of the most requested bands of the Sunday Surf Party series: Thee Swank Bastards with their incredible hula-hoop artista Szandora. 

And your hosts, local dudes, us guys: Pollo del Mar

+ The Hotel Utah streetside BBQNot included in entrance fee.

Flyer by JonPaul Balak
It’s hard to believe, but the fourth SurfGuitar101.com convention is now upon us! Mark your calendars now, Saturday, August 13th 2011 is a date you will not want to miss! Join us for a celebration of live surf music in the heart of Southern California!
We are absolutely pleased to announce the headlining act will be none other than Satan’s Pilgrims! We are also excited to continue the tradition started last year by hosting bands from outside the United States. This year, visiting from foreign shores we will have The Razorblades (Germany), The Bradipos IV (Italy), and The Blue Demons (Canada)!

As before, we will host a special “Legends of Surf” jam, where members of original 1960’s surf bands will play the classics in the genre. You won’t want to miss this! Past years have featured members of The Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, The Chantays, The Lively Ones, and The Crossfires. This year we are going to feature the music of The Belairs, Davie “King Fuzz” Allan, and a tribute to Eddie Bertrand!

Do you play an instrument? Why not sign up for the SG101 member jam? Site members get up and play surf classics old and new, sometimes standing side by side with musician’s from the original bands!

We’ll also have a large vendor space featuring CD’s, vinyl, t-shirts, DVD’s and more!

All of this is happening Saturday, August 13th, 2011 at The Starting Gate, 5052 Katella Avenue, in Los Alamitos, California, 9am to 8pm. Tickets will be $25 at the door. Kids 16 & under are free!

Here is the complete band lineup for the convention:
  • Satan’s Pilgrims - One of the most popular and influential modern surf bands, these caped musicians hail from the Pacific Northwest, home of the Ventures, The Sonics, and The Wailers.
  • The Razorblades - All the way from Germany, you’ll dig their fast and loud take on surf music.
  • The Bradipos IV - From Italy, you’ll love their traditional surf and spaghetti western sounds.
  • The Cocktail Preachers - This Chicago band indeed preaches to the faithful the sounds of surf, exotica, and Mai-Tais.
  • Daikaiju - This Kabuki masked band hails from Alabama, and plays a high explosive, rocket-fueled progressive form of surf music. One of the most talked about live acts on the scene.
  • Meshugga Beach Party - Who knew? Traditional surf music combined with Jewish folk songs! You have to see to believe these chosen surfers from Northern California.
  • The Deadbeats - One of the hottest and youngest surf bands today, these kids like to play old school surf music loud and fast!
  • The Blue Demons - From Toronto, these wrestling super heroes will take you to the mat with their pile-driving take on surf and garage music.
  • The Tequila Worms - Another young band, these guys hail from Anaheim, California, and sound like The Ventures after getting in a car crash with Link Wray!
But wait there is more! That’s right, we have all kinds of shows lined up for you before and after the convention. Book your hotel rooms now for a massive celebration of live surf music. Here is the complete schedule:

Mike Barbwire: Crossing the Atlantic

Submitted by Brian on May 29, 2011.
Show Announcements

For the first time ever, playing a few selected shows in NorCal, Mike Barbwire, bandleader of infamous Swedish act The Barbwires will team up with San Francisco surf heroes THE DEADBEATS on the first week of July, 2011. This brand new cross-Atlantic collaboration goes under the name of Mike Barbwire with The Deadbeats, and what you can expect is older stuff, new stuff, and probably a few newly composed songs. How does it taste? Well take 1 oz Swedish stored ice-cold wild surf-guitar, add 4 cups of freshly harvested even wilder-sounding sun-drenched NorCal surf musicians, add some light and dark rum, falernum syrup, throw in a pinch of frenzy and a handful of joy for the art of surf music. How this exotic cocktail tastes can only be found out at any of these exclusive shows!

  • RIVERVIEW LODGE, Antioch - June 28
  • FORBIDDEN ISLAND, Alameda - June 29
  • SAN MATEO FESTIVAL, San Mateo - July 1
  • NORCAL KNOCKOUT, Vallejo - July 2

A brand new Mike Barbwire 45 rpm is to be released simultaneously with this tour. Here is a short teaser video:

The 45 was recorded in Sweden in May with The Blue Ocean Six featuring members from The Domestic Bumblebees, The Hives, The Dragtones, and Big Band Splash.

For more info and updates please check Mike Barbwire on facebook or visit www.norcalknockout.com.

The Fifth KFJC Battle of the Surfin' Bands Sat May 14

Submitted by PolloGuitar on May 01, 2011.
Show Announcements

KFJC Surf Battle

On May 14, KFJC presents The Fifth KFJC Battle of the Surf Bands. In keeping with the tradition of the legendary Surf Battles of the early 60s, bands are given 15 minutes to present their best material and show, making for a fast paced and exciting 4 hour event. The biggest change this year is a move from the beloved Hotel Utah in SF, to The British Bankers Club in Menlo Park. The BBC is a big, full service restaurant and will easily hold the expected crowd, and will allow minors. Menlo Park is also much closer to KFJC's home.
