They'll be playing between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. at Stories for a book event based around my new one with Brian Chidester, "Pop Surf Culture: Music, Design, Film and Fashion from the Bohemian Surf Boom." Several television monitors around the shop will be screening a wide variety of pre-1970 surfing movies as background eye candy (and for Pop effect) as The Boardwalkers play, and we meet, greet and sign books. For more information and a ton of groovy pics, check:
