.‘Surf Classic’ at the Ritz

Back in the late ’50s and early ’60s, there wasn’t anything more punk rock than surf music. The musical rebels of yesteryear repurposed the Spanish scales they heard on their parents’ Andrés Segovia records—speeding it all up and running it over the top of rumbling drums and through overdriven amplifiers. Today, many younger bands that cut their teeth playing root-third-fifth punk are finding inspiration in their parents’ vinyl collections, riding a second wave of surf across the rock clubs of America. The Boss Martians headline this celebration of tremolo picking and Fender Reverb amps. They’re joined by The Surfrajettes and Los Tiki Phantoms.
