Surf and Garage nite at The Syndicate Lounge
July 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
It’s that time again folks when we would like to entertain you for the evening! So come out and experience the horror and delightful sounds of GENKI GENKI PANIC, DAN SARTAIN, & MAJA DUNES. We’re gonna throw the most monsterous party Birmingham has seen in one of the best bars in town. You really don’t want to miss this…
-GENKI GENKI PANIC (Chatanooga, TN) ‘Echoing the mondo-weirdo retro vibe of spook n surf greats The Ghastly Ones and Satan’s Pilgrims, Chattanooga TN’s Genki Genki Panic revels in reverb soaked instrumentals that reference the macabre with cheeky winks and nudges, and competent, inventive instrumentation. With an exotic, tiki meets belly dance rhythm and Carpenter-esque solos, “Camp Crystal Lake” re-envisions Friday The 13th as a 60’s spy thriller directed by Quentin Tarantino circa 1996, while “976-EVIL” thrills more with its uptempo I’m-being-stalked-by-something-terrible urgency than the song’s namesake movie ever could. Featuring sly titles… plus attitude and atmosphere to spare, Ghoulie High Harmony will bring all the ghost in invisible bikinis down to your horror hangout.”
-MAJA DUNES (Birmingham, AL) MAJA DUNES is a local surf/horror band that formed in the fall of 2013. Started out as a home recording project, Maja Dunes has since transformed into a full scale band. Combining traditional surf with classic horror movie themes. Blazing out of the local punk scene with a fast and creepy sound.
-DAN SARTAIN (Center Point,AL) Dan Sartain has been traveling the world playing his music for years. He performs both as a solo act or with a full band, and delivers consistently. With a string of releases for the One Little Indian label (Dan Sartain vs. the Serpientes, Join Dan Sartain, Dan Sartain Lives, Legacy of Hospitality, Too Tough To Live and DUDESBLOOD), the native Alabamian shows no signs of slowing down. His newest release Century Plaze is in stores and online.
I heard he’s actually Vulcan’s son too (no shit!). Check him out.
