Invasion Of The Surf Bands

Great news for all our readers in Massachusetts: Daikaiju and SPF-4 will be playing at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, MA on May 12th! In case you don’t know, Daikaiju is an amazing surf rock band inspired by Japanese monster movies and this show is only part of their ongoing “Flight of Garuda” tour. Said tour started in March and the name either refers to the legendary bird-creature or the combat aircraft (named after the aforementioned bird-creature) that appeared in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. For more information about the tour itself (and band), please visit the official Daikaiju website. Here’s a schedule for today’s show in New York, along with the rest of the tour stops:
