IF YOU like your surf rock tough and vengeful, don’t miss Baltimore’s Wet Brain on Friday. The all-girl four-piece blends elements of punk, hardcore, riot grrrl, and classic surf swing with a raw edge. If your 2014 show highlights include Priests, Perfect Pussy, and The Coathangers, it’ll be the perfect way to wrap up your year.
And if you’ve never seen The Wave Slaves, Savannah’s own instrumental surf rock group, you owe it to yourself to experience their warm and beachy tones in the midst of winter. Ty Watkins of Atlanta ska band Hermits of Suburbia recently joined on third guitar, bringing a new layer of intricacy to their original songs and renditions of Ventures and Dick Dale favorites.
