Dead Kampers at Cruz Kitchen & Taps
Rooted in Santa Cruz, Dead Kampers’ audacious “Big Wave” instrumental surf rock suddenly drops you into the pocket, shooting you on a visceral trip though the reverb-drenched curl. They cut back way off the lip, wave after heavy wave of ska, punk, dub and jazz variations, always lined up just behind the break, always amped for the next set. Eschew men in gray suits. Long live Dead Kampers. You’ll be stoked!
