Of interest in NOLA this week: Daikaiju, The Wrecking Crew, and Record Raid

Daikaiju

While this blog is mostly focused surf fans worldwide, I can't not let Louisianans know about a few things this week.

1st: The Wrecking Crew movie.

It's been languishing in distribution hell for ages and suddenly it's dropped into the Prytania this week. The Wrecking Crew are the session men behind a zillion pop hits in the 60s including a bunch of surf records. I don't know how big of a surf focus this movie is going to have but the director has piped up over at surfguitar101.com. It looks like this is only playing through Thursday, I'm hoping to catch it tonight.

2nd: DAIKAIJU.... and me. April 1st.

I think those of us that have seen them would have little trouble with calling Daikaiju the best instrumental group to see live. The way they interract with the audience is unlike anything else I've seen. Plus I'm DJing. Jeez I gotta start getting stuff together for that...

3rd Record Raid. Saturday April 4th.

My other project. 18 vendors this time and at the Zeitgeist. Piles and piles and piles of records. Some of them rare, some of them new, some of them old, probably some instrumentals but I might beat you to them.
