- The Lonely Teardrops
READY to wiggle your way into the weekend? This is sure to be one for the books.
If you’re experiencing withdrawals after Southern Culture on the Skids’ Stopover blowout, dry yer eyes, ‘cause Norfolk, Virginia’s The Lonely Teardrops are headin’ south. Classic surf reverb paired with ‘60s garage grit coast out of Katie Teardrop’s amp as Crash LaResh keeps the brassy waves rolling over the crowd on the drums (LaResh, an old partner of rockabilly king Dexter Romweber, performed alongside Romweber in Flat Duo Jets and Dex Romweber Trio). Top it all off with Katie Teardrop’s raspy wail and killer mod girl fashion sense, and you got yourself a show!
Wilmington, North Carolina’s Deadly Lo-Fi makes delicious scuzzy surf-trash studded with saxophone and shivering with spook-show imagery. Lovers of the Cramps and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins unite!
SAV fave Wet Socks joins the bill. And to think, all this a day after Dick Dale himself comes to town. Who’s got the first round of Singapore Slings?
