Looking for Surf/Instro groups to play in New Orleans for WTUL/SSOR fundraiser

EDIT! I'm rescheduling this. Stay tuned.

Storm Surge of Reverb makes its way to your earholes thanks to WTUL 91.5 fm in New Orleans Louisiana. 2 Years ago we put on a killer fundraiser show for WTUL featuring Kill, Baby... Kill! and the Unnaturals and it was a complete success, packing the bar to the gills and making a decent chunk of change for the station. You see, here in New Orleans there's not an awful lot of surf groups and definitely not much of a surf scene. But I have a lot of listeners! If I want to do a Storm Surge of Reverb special, they'll come out!

New Orleans! There's some surf to see this week!

Guantanamo Baywatch Thursday at Siberia

Surf nuts don't usually have a lot of options in New Orleans (though you do have local options The Unnaturals, The Bills, Bruiser Broussard, Blood Urchin and Rondo Hatton in Baton Rouge) but this week we've got two visiting. Two sorta surf bands. I figure it's enough to make a post about.

New Orleanians! Help WTUL out in the Gambit Readers Poll!

The Gambit is running their yearly readers poll. I can't remember the last time WTUL has even appeared in this. Usually the winners for the bands are Cowboy Mouth and Better Than Ezra. Basically results are usually very disappointing.

There is a radio show host field. I *really* don't think that's happening, so I'm not really asking for that. I'm just asking for WTUL as your favorite radio station.

You need to fill out a lot more answers than that (which is why people out of town need not worry about this)

Where to buy surf rock in New Orleans and on the internet

In New Orleans

New Orleans is not a place where surf the surf craze really took off. Finding material for this show isn't totally done online, but rather trawling through any pile of records I can find hoping for instrumentals. If you're hoping to dig in, I can make it easier for you. Keep in mind that this is *just* for surf instrumentals. If I were to list great record stores I would have a few more and in a different order.
