The King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale and Surf Punk legend, Laramie Dean, have joined together! They came to rock Houston; they did that, and much, much more.
Picture
The Paul Ramirez Band played a tight bluesy Rock set featuring many well known songs, and a few originals too. The highlight of the entire performance was easily a quick performance of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile", that was too intense for the guitar strings to hold.

Laramie Dean put on a ripping show. With skulls, and eery red lit fog covering the stage, it was a perfect sight to back up the music. Authentic reverb heavy Surf music, but with crunchy distortion, and a Punk attitude, it makes the term "Surf Punk" well warranted. The set featured well know Surf Rock staples like: "Pipeline", "Penetration", and "Mr. Moto". Along with some great originals like: "Surf Wolf", "Surf Riot", and the new single "The Creeper", it made for an undeniably great, rowdy, Surf set. Another special highlight was the performance of "Bonzai Washout", which wouldn't be played by Dale due to the lack of horns in his current line up. Before completely finishing the set, Laramie passed out his guitar to a few lucky crowd goers, putting the final cherry on top of a great show.

Dick Dale took the stage, and began playing some of the classic surf songs he's known for like "Shake And Stomp", but the real show started a couple songs in. Being my first time, I wasn't expecting anything this amazing, but his set was filled with jams or medleys which sometimes evolve into it's own improvised song, but often morphing to feature some amazing classic songs. Half the fun of the show was watching the band work around each other on the spot. Or on certain rare occasions watch the band get told they're not playing a song right. Being a strange twist between an amazing talent showcase, a casual garage-esque jam, and a sitcom, the fun was incredibly contagious. Song highlights include: an audience suggested performance of "King Of The Surf Guitar"(which actually had him stop, to remember how to play it, citing the fact he hasn't played it in numerous years.[Yes, It's that special of an event!]), "Let's Go Trippin'", "The Wedge", "Pipeline", and more. Numerous other special moments include short performances of: Link Wray's "Rumble", "House Of The Rising Sun"(as popularized by the Animals), "Summertime Blues", and even a last minute appearance of the famous "Smoke On The Water" riff added at a moments notice. Again, "spontaneous" was the word of the night. Needless to say there was no set list, and there apparently never has been for Dick Dale shows. There was such intimacy, and interaction between the band and the audience that line between felt non-existent.

After somewhere over an hour and a half after taking the stage they ended the night with a high-energy performance of "Miserlou", and a subsequent bow from the band. Then Dick Dale went to the merch booth to greet his many fans in attendance that night, and sign an uncountable number of autographs.

Okay, so another phrase comes to mind about that night; "Unmatchable, and unequaled talent" King Of The Surf Guitar is far more than a just a title.


At times it felt like there was a mind link between band and audience. Dick remarked that he was considering announcing "King Of The Surf Guitar" just before a crowd goer requested it. Not only that, every time the thought "Oh, they have to play (insert song here)!" It was suddenly being blasted from the four amps in front of me. Such an undeniably great show...


I've got to take a moment applaud Dick's backing band for being able to keep up with the unpredictable changes. Especially Jimmy Dale since he played rums in both acts that night.

See the Surf King in action in the Pictures!

Louis Vuitton Outlet come in a wide variety of styles so finding on that you like really shouldn't present a problem. Although the majority of them are made out of leather you can actually get them made out of several different materials. Other than the fact that they are all very expensive there is little else that all Louis Vuitton designer handbags have in common.

This Prada handbag serves as a good example of all its merits. Printed nylon in boa constrictor design and nappa leather are well-combined in this shopping tote. It has two handles for you to carry with hand, or you can use the removable shoulder strap. There are two internal pockets, one of which is zipper-closured, and the other is stuck with button. The hardware is amber colored. With a size of 42 cm plus 33 cm, you can easily put things into it. Or you can choose a similar tote which is a little bit smaller sized at 32 cm plus 28 cm.
