Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

The Sneaky Tikis return to the Valley floor after a bunch of performances in the foothills and join Sacramento's own Lava Pups for a night of instrumental surf and garage rock.  The Sneaky Tikis are four precocious young musicians (ages 13 to 19) who were mentored by Dusty Watson and Paul the Pyronaut.  They combine the styles of Dick Dale and Slacktone to classic and modern surf songs.  The Lava Pups put their spin on traditional and original surf and garage music with some irreverent fun.  Shine is an intimate, comfortable venue that features coffee, teas, beer, wine, and food.  This promises to be a fun night!

February 16 at 8pm.

Lava Pups - Into the Flow - 4 stars - New Gandy Dancer

Submitted by LavaPup on April 29, 2011.
Reviews

New Gandy Dancer - Issue 97: "All originals little album Stateside . . . and this is the sound we like! Crystal clear, sixties style playing on stuff we haven't heard before. Bit of Ventures, bit of surf but in a flow of their own. Well performed and written (did I say all originals?), the best track of which is "Link Man" a rousing 12 bar delivered with panache. **** (Davy)

The Lava Pups debut CD "Into The Flow" featuring 8 original tunes and SG101ers Paul The Pyronaut on rhythm guitar and JetBlue on bass is now available!

www.cdbaby.com/cd/lavapups

www.lavapups.com

The Lava Pups is a collaborative effort created out of our love for surf and rock instrumental music and desire to have fun.  Our debut CD shows the influences of Dick Dale, Link Wray, Duane Eddy and Paul Johnson. The songs range from in-your-face double-picked, glissando-ladened garage surf like "Sea Witch" to the sweetly dissonant ballad "Pacifica Blue."
