Presented by: House of TARG, Beau's
Doors: 9pm / Show at 10pm / 19+
Ottawa’s only Surf, Instro and Garage Rock Festival returns to House of TARG for the 2017 Edition! Instro favourites from past years combine with some new garage rock blood over a weekend guaranteed to make you dance.
THE HURARACHES (Instro Surf Punk)
The Huaraches are Kingston, Ontario’s finest/only purveyors of instrumental surf punk. They take the spirit of artists like Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet and The Ventures, add reverb, jumpsuits and impunity, then just straight-up put on a show. To truly understand The Huaraches, see them live. This crew believes in giving audiences their money’s worth. On any given night their act could include lucha-libre go-go dancers, limbo contests, therapeutic hug sessions, and a machete. They're high-energy. They have fun. It's contagious.
THE REVERB SYNDICATE (Ottawa Instro Surf)
Reverb-drenched surf/spy-fi sounds to accompany 60's spy films that don't exist. Killer guitar wizardry. One of Ottawa's most fun bands to watch.
THE OBSIDIANS (Ottawa Surf Rock)
Instrumental Surf Band writing fast riffs and heavy hits. F.O.F. - Dick Dale, Jim Messina and the Jesters, Shadowy Men from a Shadowy Planet, The Space Cossacks, Los Twang! Marvels, The Aqualads
