WHAT's NEW
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

February 26, 2005. While I am no longer actively updating this page, I finally came up with another good excuse to update this page. I was asked by the International Surfing Museum in Huntington Beach to help them contact surf bands for the free shows they will be putting on for the 2005 season. I was able to help out, so I will also be listing the shows for this season as I become aware of them.

The Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum is open daily with summer hours from 12 noon to 5 Pm on weekdays and 9 to 5 on weekends. Admission is $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for students and children under 6 are free.

May 2, 2002. A couple of friends are in the band, Foreign Object, and they asked me to post this press release on my web site.

Finally, a reason to postpone committing suicide:
after a five-year hiatus, hardcore heavyweight champs Foreign Object are hitting the stage in Hollywood this May. The punk rock kings of the ring, billed as the Undisputed Hardcore Heavyweight Tag-Team Champions of the FTW Wrestling Federation, are bringing their unique blend of classic punk rock and professional wrestling to the Garage on Saturday, May 18.

Foreign Object is a band of masked punk rock villains that perform superior rock n roll while lead singer / wrestler Anarchy wrestles opponents on-stage and in the ring (as seen at Lollapalooza 1995 and San Francisco's Incredibly Strange Wrestling). Two songs from their 1995 effort "Chair To The Head" are available at http://www.mp3.com/foreignobject for free download. For more information on May 18th at the Garage, contact Toast at toastola@earthlink.net or (213) 353-4686.

(Foreign Object includes former members of Bad Samaritans, Brujeria, Die Fast, Nip Drivers and Psychedelicatessen.)

April 22, 2001. I started work on this page.

INTRO:
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

June 19, 2008 I just realized that since I have been trying to keep track of shows that I am planning on going to, I might as well update this page. Therefore, I will be listing all the Southern California surf / instro shows that I am aware of, and that I might possibly attend.

I also get hired to tape non-surf bands. I have not decided on a final format for listings of these other performances that are not surf related. But I will probably be making some kind of notation here.

For a while I had stopped updating this page, as all the bands that I am hosting and / or maintaining web sites, have their own upcoming show page. However, ...

Such as helping out February 2005.
Since I was able to help out the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum (HBISM) in Huntington Beach contact bands for their 2005 season of free shows, I decided to list those shows on this page.

The intent of this Calendar page, is to have a small fast loading page, with the listing of upcoming live shows for bands whos' web pages are hosted here. I will still be listing ALL live shows on the individual bands pages. However, some of the individual pages (Insect Surfers) are starting to get a bit large. This Calendar page will allow for people who are only looking for live show information to get in and out of this site a little quicker.

When I was hosting web sites for 1 or 2 bands, it was easy enough to post upcoming shows on the band page as well as this page. Also, some of band pages were fairly slow loading. So it made sense to have this page.

As of May 2004 I am hosting web sites for 5 bands. I am also doing management of web sites for a few additional bands. All the bands that I am hosting, are having their sites redesigned, so that each has their own faster loading upcoming show listing. So it makes less sense for me to list all the band shows here.

Therefore, if you are looking for upcoming shows for any band that I host, please look at their individual sites:
  Insect Surfers - upcoming shows
  Boardwalkers - upcoming shows
  Rick Lawndale Band - upcoming shows
  The Hot Rod Trio - upcoming shows
  Raw Power Rangers - upcoming shows

I am hosting/maintaining web sites for the Insect Surfers, the Boardwalkers, the Rick Lawndale Band, The Hot Rod Trio and Raw Power Rangers. While I will be listing all the upcoming shows of the surf /instro bands here, I will also be listing them on their individual web sites. All other band information (contact information, product for sale, ListServ, current show listings, older show listings, ...) will be on their individual pages.

If your band or event wants a listing on this site, and I am not hosting you bands' web site, contact me and maybe we can work something out.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?
