This odd pairing will celebrate the opening of a West Palm Beach restaurant named Longboards with a free show on Saturday, July 2. We wouldn’t usually point you so far north, but the co-billing of the Surfaris, famous for their 1963 hit “Wipe Out”, and Miami’s Jacuzzi Boys, deserving of fame for their garage-door-warping garage rock, may be worth the drive. The event runs from 5 p.m. to midnight, according to Longboards’ Facebook page. Since the Surfaris’ only have two songs, I guess that means the Jacuzzi Boys are going to play for six-and-a-half hours. Man, are they gonna be wiped out. (“I can resist everything except temptation.”)
Here’s the Surfaris’ “Surfer Joe”, the A-side on the “Wipe Out” single. It was also a big hit back in ’63.
And here’s the Jacuzzi Boys’ surfy “Coral Girls”.
