Dick Dale in Tacoma Saturday

By weeklyvolcano on September 26, 2007

Last year, when Dick Dale played Hell’s Kitchen, the show was easily one of the highlights of the year. It’s not everyday that the man who invented surf guitar plugs in at the Kitchen, and it’s not every day you get a chance to stand only feet away from his amps.

It’s not everyday, but if we’re lucky, it may happen every year.

That’s because this Saturday, Sept. 29, Dick Dale will be back in Tacoma, once again bombarding the grit city with surf riffs loud enough to make your ears ring for days, and he’ll be joined by two of the best bands Tacoma has to offer â€" Girl Trouble and the Fucking Eagles.

If you thought the show was hot last year, just wait until you see what Dale has up his sleeve this year. If you missed the show last year, consider yourself lucky. You’ve been given a golden opportunity to once again see a music legend up close and personal. Don’t blow it this time. â€" Matt Driscoll
