February is a sweetheart of a month for surf

Forget the candy and flowers, just give me some reverb and surf this year. Despite the frigid temps on the east coast we will be heating up the region with surf, lots of it. There are almost too many shows to mention, but I will.

We start out on February 2, aka Groundhog Day with a 2-fer! In NYC we have the monthly edition of Unsteady Freddie's Surf-Rock Shindig at Otto's Shrunken Head. Featured bands this month include: The Supertones, El Muchacho, The Coffin Daggers and the Sea Devils. As always, no cover at Otto's, just tons of great surf with your master of ceremonies, Unsteady Freddie (www.catch-the-waves.com) kicking it all off at 10 pm. The very same night, Feb 2, The Aquatudes (myspace.com/theaquatudes) and The Crustaceans will be presenting "Surfin' at The Brook" at Roaring Brook Nature Center (www.roaringbrookconcerts.org). in Canton, CT. This is all ages show and perfect for those of us who are perpetually young at heart. The show is from 7:30 - 10:00 PM and I will be there cheering on my favorite shellfish.

So Cal friends and surf music fans

This is way-last-minute and a way-cool opportunity that you might not want
to miss...

My ol¹ pal TEISCO DEL REY, Austin TX¹s premiere surf rocker, is playing at
Deke Dickerson's annual ³Guitar Geek² festival in Anaheim this coming
Saturday, January 19 (headlined this year by the legendary Collins Kids of
50s rockabilly fame). And I'm stoked because I get to be part of the
all-star band backing him for this.

*** And NOW I'M ALL THE MORE STOKED because we have JUST ADDED a second engagement. for
SUNDAY NIGHT JAN 20th at the PURPLE ORCHID TIKI BAR in EL SEGUNDO with The Glasgow Tiki Shakers also on the bill here...) ***

Details about both gigs are below, in a reprint of Teisco¹s own blurb about these events.
I'll just add that Teisco is one of my favorite people, he's quite a colorful and quirky character, to put it mildly!
It's sure to be a great show at whichever event you might attend. Please read the blurb you'll get the picture...
