We're changing it up this go around with just one instro/surf group, The Fugitives (featuring Nicole of The Wave Slaves), and two surf-leaning turf groups. Liz Brasher is an artist which deserves your attention. Now normally singer-songwriter is a term that turns me right off but Liz is different, channeling 60's RnB fused with guitar awash in reverb and backed by a phenomenal combo. The Fugitives are back with guest drummer Nicole Edge of The Wave Slaves. The trio will be doing mostly standards in their aggressive style with David Northrip's sped-up-tape guitar playing. Rounding out the bill are surfy, garage punkers Rad-isaurus Rex who did a show for us at the Star Bar a while back and are just a ton of fun.

The Buckrabbits are an instrumental surf punk trio heavily influenced by the likes of Link Wray and the Ramones. You may have caught them at the Clarkston Surf Fest almost ten years ago(!) in 2008. Making their debut, Racket Squad features members of The Surge! and I'm told will perform instrumentals which predate the surf genre, where tape delay was used in lieu of spring reverb as it had not yet been invented. Maestro Eddie Katcher takes the helm so in my eyes the group can do no wrong and we're sure to be treated to another master class. Two Sisters will provide the 'turf' portion of the evening with female fronted pop music in the vein of Neko Case and Camera Obscura.
