Dick Dale at the Red Eyed Fly

04/03/13 Update: Opps! there was a default max of 20, I wasn't able to change, If you go to RSVP and it's full, get on the waiting list and I'll update your status to Yes the next time I log in.  If for some reason I miss a last minute add, don't worry go to the show any way, the show is a public event anyhow and the more the merrier.  So you're welcome to bring a freind if you wish.

I just noticed that tickets are now available at FrontGate Tickets. There are 2 ways to get your tickets ahead of time; Order on-line and pick them up night of the show at the Will Call window, or go to a FrontGate ticket outlet.

Here's the link for ordering on line: http://tickets.frontgatetickets.com/choose.php?a=1&lid=78361&eid=88368

Outlets are at: Waterloo Records @ 6th & Lamar, Stubbs BBQ 801 Red River and The Parish 214 E. 6th. I recommend Waterloo Records as they have regular hours.

 

Come on out and join us to see Dick Dale at the Red Eyed Fly.

"Dick Dale wasn't nicknamed "King of the Surf Guitar" for nothing: he pretty much invented the style single-handedly, and no matter who copied or expanded upon his blueprint, he remained the fieriest, most technically gifted musician the genre ever produced. Dale's pioneering use of Middle Eastern and Eastern European melodies (learned organically through his familial heritage) was among the first in any genre of American popular music, and predated the teaching of such "exotic" scales in guitar-shredder academies by two decades. The breakneck speed of his single-note staccato picking technique was unrivalled until it entered the repertoires of metal virtuosos like Eddie Van Halen, and his wild showmanship made an enormous impression on the young Jimi Hendrix.

But those aren't the only reasons Dale was once called the father of heavy metal. Working closely with the Fender company, Dale continually pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop new equipment that was capable of producing the thick, clearly defined tones he heard in his head, at the previously undreamed-of volumes he demanded. He also pioneered the use of portable reverb effects, creating a signature sonic texture for surf instrumentals. And, if all that weren't enough, Dale managed to redefine his instrument while essentially playing it upside-down and backwards — he switched sides in order to play left-handed, but without re-stringing it (as Hendrix later did)." - The Crocodile.

Come and hear Miserlou performed by the master himself!

    Red Eyed Fly is an indoor-outdoor facility, it will be a little chilly tonight so wear a jacket and bring a drinking glove (so your beverage doesn't make your hand too cold) I'll be wearing jeans, grey shirt, and black leather jacket. It will be a loud concert, some will choose to get close to the stage, some hang back, I tend to move around.
