- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
Texas surf rock tips its hat to the man who wore the crown - Dick Dale, the King of the Surf Guitar. Hosted by Indian Roller boutique roadhouse, five Texas rock combos will perform Dale-inspired set lists that include covers of the King’s greatest hits. It’ll be a thunderous tribute to the man, the myth, and the legend of Dick Dale.
Dale-tastic sets by: the Hungry Onions, the Nematoads, Los Superavengers, the Boss Jaguars!, and the Baffles. Stay til the end for a special All-Star Dick Dale Jam!
Indian Roller will be debuting a new Tiki Cocktail menu and Deep Eddy Records, Bat-Tone Records and Surf Austin will be on hand holding Dick Dale-themed raffles throughout the night.
Proceeds for the event go to benefit CareBOX Program. CareBOX is a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing free, much-needed care supplies to cancer patients. CareBOX hand assembles and delivers these supplies to patients, reducing barriers to access and helping to prevent malnutrition, infections and injuries and reduce cancer-related deaths.
