Madeira Update (Indy Show 1/26)

Hello all;

The Madeira will be returning to the Melody Inn in Indianapolis on Friday, January 26th. We will be playing with three non-surf, hard-rocking bands: The Vacancy (Pittsburgh), Razorblade Skyline & Imperial Battlesnake (Chicago). This will be a great opportunity to expose some new people to the amazing, powerful sound of a full-on surf band pounding out that reverb!

Nothing scheduled for February at the moment, but looks like March and April will see us playing a bit more. More details once they're confirmed.

In other news: we have been hard at work on new material for a second full-length CD, which we hope to record in the late summer and release early in '08. Also, our Myspace site has been updated with two new tracks from the debut album 'SANDSTORM' as well as performance videos of the songs "Ricochet" and a new original, "Surf Fidelis." Go check 'em out!

The Fin-Dicators are Fin-alists for the NY Dolls

Hello to Surfguitar 101-ians, I had no idea that Little Steven liked surf!!!! We have a chance to open for The NY Dolls if enough people vote for us.

At this link scroll down to select Atlantic City and vote for The Fin-Dicators, please!

There was a battle of the (garage) bands and I submitted our original surf rock song "Tangled Leash" and a picture of the band. Little Steven made all the choices and chose us as one of three for the Atlantic City, NJ gig. I need as many different logons as possible to vote for us. This is reaaaallllly big for surf rock exposure. Also vote for the Creepy Creeps in San Diego, I did. The voting will continue till November 2.

The gig date to open for The NY Dolls in November at Atlantic City is:
Friday, Nov 24th
Venue: Borgata
Location: Atlantic City, NJ
With: w/Supersuckers, Chesterfield Kings and more

That’s the Friday after Thanksgiving.
