Purple Orchid, El Segundo

On Friday we went to the annual Surf Guitar 101 BBQ at Jeff Big Tiki Dude’s house. Members from all the bands turned up to socialise before the gig on Saturday.

After that we set out on a perfect Californian evening for the gig in El Segundo.

The gig was at the Purple Orchid. A Tiki Bar that is a great supporter of surf music.

We met Ivan Pogracic, from the Madiera  and Space Cossacks, who possibly knows more about The Atlantics than I do. He joined us on Bombora.

Paul Johnson got up with us again. What a legend.

It may have been the smallest stage we’ve ever played on, but what a fantastic gig.

Tonight we have our last gig in LA at Suds in Huntington Beach.
