Had a huge boatload of new-to-the-show stuff and actually ran out of time to play all of it! Some brand new stuff from Bande de los Apaches, The Men in Gray Suits, Los Apollos, Los Ultraman, The Mystery Men, and Surfyer!
This will be my second year at the biggest US surf event: the Surfguitar 101 Convention in Torrance, CA.
I'm sure a lot of y'all have seen that viral video of a guy playing metal songs without distortion only to reveal surf songs underneath. I'm sure somebody thought what many have yelled "Play some Slayer". And here we are: Reign in Blood, done as a surf record, with a crudely drawn, crudely conceived band name "Surfyer". I love it.
First off, it's a good band name. A pretty normal sounding surf band name until you say it aloud and realize the pun.
the dynotones - modified (beach party a-go-go)
the hang-ten hangmen - destination saturn (destination saturn)
The Exotics - go go guitars (go go guitars)
the volcanics - the sabotage (stompin' garage)
venturesmania - nancy's minuet (bound & sidejacked again)
the lively ones - surf battle (kfwb's battle of the surfing bands)
the surfaris - point panic (play)
the avengers VI - heartbeat (real cool hits)
Shutdowns - Four in the floor (Surf & Drag Volume 2)
the vibrasonics - drag race (surf guitars rumble)
