The Whys @ The Blank Club, San Jose 11/3/06

I enjoyed this show a lot.
Surf Cinema honing their craft, with their entertaining barrage of classic Surf-tinged pop video.

Pollo Del Mar doing a select set of "Best Of".

The Whys succeeded in charming the audience with the same kind of "Joi de Surf" that the Surf Coasters brought in years past. The fronting females have the sex-appeal, Japanese charm and the randomly choreographed moves, but also have the talents. With a solid drummer, the band was both tight and raw-edged, which put them squarely in the class of capable garage Surf acts. I just can't get enough of female bass players who do glissandos!

I believe Dandy Don Vigeant did the venue-specific poster for The Blank show and KFJC did the co-sponsoring. See the remaining shows because you will come away smiling!
