Happenings at PB Surf Shop

Thought this might be of interest, from Pacific Beach Surf Shop:

Next up for the following weekend [July 17th 7:30-11:00pm] we are having A VERY special guest Glenn Hening with an Audio Visual Presentation of the untold story behind one of the most significant milestones in the history of surfing. As Surfrider Takes off - The Visionary Surfers of 1984 lead the courage and teamwork that created the Surfrider Foundation. The story is entertaining and inspirational. 

Right afterward is the band FMera as they extrapolate its post- Shoegazeresque era influences from bands such as Rid, Jets to Brazil, Interpol, the Smiths and Helio Sequence and masterfully weaves them into a mechanically timed and melodically spaced equation of undulating sounds. Heavy layers of rhythm guitar laced and chimed with notes ring high above the vocals, subdued in tone but not in volume. With lyrics such as "turning on the satellites" and "slowing down... break release", words are not just notes on a piece of paper; rather they are intricate layers of the melodies that form the mind and soul of FMera.

So as the summer starts off you are again invited to take part in the relentless unfolding musicality and history of surfing that will be happening at Your Local Surf Shop in San Diego. Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you at our shows.
