Just when you thought you'd never have the chance to hear "Surfin' Bird" live, it turns out that seminal '60s garage rockers the Trashmen will play a rare show at the Turf Club next month. The band, which was very active in the '60s and then reunited briefly in the '80s, has been more active in recent years, playing gigs throughout the US and Europe in 2009 and ending up back in their hometown for this show at the Turf with the Neanderthals, a group that includes Eddie Angel from Los Straightjackets.
For more on the Trashmen, check out an article that City Pages freelancer Erin Roof wrote back in July about the "Surfin' Bird" icons and their Soma Records labelmates, the Castaways.
