Southern Surf Stomp! presents Eddie Angel (of Los Straitjackets, TN), The Penetrators (tribute), Rodeo Twister

This is bound to be our biggest yet!  Eddie Angel is a true legend in the surf, instrumental, and rockabilly genres having performed with countless groups such as The Planet Rockers, The Neanderthals, and most notably Los Straitjackets.  With Los Straitjackets, Eddie has performed around the world several times over, released over 20 albums, performed on Conan O'Brien several times, and even been nominated for a grammy!

Without The Penetrators, there would be no Southern Surf Stomp and our little scene here in Atlanta might not exist at all.  We're proud to pay tribute to the progenitors of the Southern Surf Syndicate and our friends Rip Thrillby and Spanky Twangler, who are sadly no longer with us.  The original rhythm section, including Sticks Stechkin on drums and Trace Luger on bass, will be joined by a who's who of the Atlanta surf scene including members from The Surge!, El Capitan, and The Mystery Men?.

Rodeo Twister is comprised of veterans the Atlanta roots rock scene.  The three piece uses electric guitar, acoustic guitar, stand up bass, and their fantastic harmony vocals to create a sound that would make Sam Phillips proud.

We're lucky to once again have The Fringe Factory DJs spinning the sweet sounds of yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
