Referring to themselves as "The World's Most Satanic Surf Rock Band," Lusurfer combine the spirit of the devil with the water sport that inspired guitar heroes such as Dick Dale and Link Wray. The band's instrumental surf rock is spot-on, and to further their "satanic" persona, their gimmick comes complete with Hawaiian shirts and underworldly black-and-white face paint. Their straightforward rock 'n' roll proficiency is further enriched by a wicked sense of humor and delightful blasphemy, culminating with surf guitar covers as brilliant as Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills." Rounding out the bill are local Rockabilly staple Hot Rod Hearse and the garage-rock/surf sounds of Laundromat Vacation. 21+.
