The Power of East Coast Surf

8/4/06 - 9th Wave and Ronnie Lake in Brooklyn, NYC 

FRIDAY night August 4th I caught a 1-2 surf-rock punch of a show at HANK'S SALOON in Brooklyn, promoted by the Birthday Girl, Blue StingRaye.
  
On the bill:  2 hot bands from other states....
First up, THE 9th WAVE from Connecticut pounded out some killer hot-rod surf;  PHRED has moved back to the Northeast, and was sitting in behind the skins'  I don't know if that was the reason, by let me say this straight out...I have never heard/seen the 9th Wave so precision-tight....;  they offered a bunch of new tunes that'll be on their next  CD...and it all sounds glorious.
  
Then leather-clad RONNIE LAKE from Minnesota, and her band, hit the stage....she never let up from the first note/power chord...intense set,  probably more rock n roll than surf, though nonetheless the mixture was lethal.
  
Ran into BILL MOFFIT (FIN-DICATORS) and PATTI & PAUL (TARANTINOS/NYC) there, MELINA too (VENICE BEACH)
