Howard and Dinosaur JR. to noise masters Sonic Youth. Put a little singing on top and you get a surf album that sounds VERY different from the usual trad sound.

Hope you enjoy it!

Where: Schlachthof Wiesbaden http://www.schlachthof-wiesbaden.de/
Doors Open: 20.00

THE RAZORBLADES

…sound like Dick Dale on speed, the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack in turbo mode, like a car chase on Highway 101 with loud punk rock on the radio, 120 mph and no seat belt attached. The three piece from Wiesbaden,Germany combines the classic sities surf sound with neck breaking speed, wild feedback noise and a colorful range of influences. You can hear the American power pop of the Cute Lepers as well as Agent Orange’s West Coast Punk,and the Ska of The Specials. A fun evening is guaranteed!

THE PHANTOM FOUR

Phantom Frank conquered The Netherlands with surfband The Treble Spankers in the late 90's. In the slipstream of the success of Pulp Fiction the band scored an airplayhit with Red Hot Navigator, played all major festivals in The Netherlands and sold 25.000 albums. Since 2005 Phantom Frank plays all over The Netherlands with his new band The Phantom Four. The band opened for Dick Dale, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, G.

2 Days Bay Area Surf Music Event

Flyer

You say love surf music, and you're hungry? Over the August 6/7 weekend, you are very lucky! The Surfin' Smorgasboard at The Forbidden Island and The International Reverb BBQ at the Hotel Utah will satiate your desires, a delicious combination of Surf AND Turf!


The Second Surfin' Smorgasboard and Pig Roast at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge! Facebook Event Page
$10 - Saturday August 6, 1-6 PM, 1304 Lincoln Ave, Alameda CA

Headlining, all the way from Rome, The Bradipos IV. Their sound is Vespas and Morricone, Bardot-a-go-go and Sixties Beach Party. This is their first USA tour.

The Secret Samurai work the antipodal influences of passionate Spanish guitar and frenetic Japanese Eleki into a heavy and aggressive trio sound. This is not Gidget's surf music, but an evolution of Dick Dale's crunchy Middle Eastern melodies. The Secret Samurai released their second CD, "Zanshin" earlier this year.

The Surfside IV come to us from Phoenix Arizona, where there's about a thousand miles of beach before you hit the ocean, for an exclusive Northern California appearance. They are red-Fez wearin' lads with a garage-party dance beat. 

From San Pablo CA come The Deadbeats, the youngest surf band on the scene. Their style is blistering, ear popping, speed surf. Their new CD, "Day of the Deadbeats" will be available at the show.

Don't wait in line, buy early from Brown Paper Tickets!

Authentic Hawaiian pig roast by Oakland's Chop Bar (with vegetarian option). Pig roast not included in entrance fee.

We are absolutely pleased to announce the headlining act will be none other than Satan’s Pilgrims! We are also excited to continue the tradition started last year by hosting bands from outside the United States. This year, visiting from foreign shores we will have The Razorblades (Germany), The Bradipos IV (Italy), and The Blue Demons (Canada)!

As before, we will host a special “Legends of Surf” jam, where members of original 1960’s surf bands will play the classics in the genre. You won’t want to miss this! Past years have featured members of The Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, The Chantays, The Lively Ones, and The Crossfires. This year we are going to feature the music of The Belairs, Davie “King Fuzz” Allan, and a tribute to Eddie Bertrand!

Do you play an instrument? Why not sign up for the SG101 member jam? Site members get up and play surf classics old and new, sometimes standing side by side with musician’s from the original bands!

We’ll also have a large vendor space featuring CD’s, vinyl, t-shirts, DVD’s and more!

All of this is happening Saturday, August 13th, 2011 at The Starting Gate, 5052 Katella Avenue, in Los Alamitos, California, 9am to 8pm. Tickets will be $25 at the door. Kids 16 & under are free!

Here is the complete band lineup for the convention:
  • Satan’s Pilgrims - One of the most popular and influential modern surf bands, these caped musicians hail from the Pacific Northwest, home of the Ventures, The Sonics, and The Wailers.
  • The Razorblades - All the way from Germany, you’ll dig their fast and loud take on surf music.
  • The Bradipos IV - From Italy, you’ll love their traditional surf and spaghetti western sounds.
  • The Cocktail Preachers - This Chicago band indeed preaches to the faithful the sounds of surf, exotica, and Mai-Tais.
  • Daikaiju - This Kabuki masked band hails from Alabama, and plays a high explosive, rocket-fueled progressive form of surf music. One of the most talked about live acts on the scene.
  • Meshugga Beach Party - Who knew? Traditional surf music combined with Jewish folk songs! You have to see to believe these chosen surfers from Northern California.
  • The Deadbeats - One of the hottest and youngest surf bands today, these kids like to play old school surf music loud and fast!
  • The Blue Demons - From Toronto, these wrestling super heroes will take you to the mat with their pile-driving take on surf and garage music.
  • The Tequila Worms - Another young band, these guys hail from Anaheim, California, and sound like The Ventures after getting in a car crash with Link Wray!
