The 7th Annual Great Lakes Surf Battle kicked off tonight at the Cadillac Lounge. The 3 day event features some great Toronto area instrumental surf bands plus the Cocktail Preachers from Chicago. The Surf Battle was created and put together by the Blue Demons and this year is hosted by the Wolfman.
In between band sets there will burlesque, limbo and Hawaiian T-shirt contests and the presentation of the Freaky Tiki Cup to the winning surf band!! Punks And Rockers videotaped tonight’s show and will record the entire event for a potential DVD release next year.
Here’s a song by the Blue Demons, accompanied by the lovely but dangerous Meryle Trouble.
