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!
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!
