Unsteady Freddie’s Annual Birthday Surf-Rock Shindig

Every First Saturday of The Month, yours truly presents a 4-band concert, and they go by the moniker, SURF-ROCK SHINDIG. I have been doing this since 2004, and I have NEVER MISSED ONE MONTH!!

And in January of each year, I put together a special “Birthday” edition of the series (my Birthday is actually January 5th). This year the First Saturday is January 6th.

It all happens @ OTTO’S SHRUNKEN HEAD, on NYC’s Lower East Side. Specifically 538 East 14 St, which falls between Avenues A and B. Their phone number is 212.228.2240.

Very grateful to the four bands who have committed to be part of the festivities. Here are the bands, and the URL to their Facebook websites:

9 pm The Band of Others


11 pm The TarantinosdNYC

12 Mid The WrayCyclers

So please mark your calendars to make “The Surf Scene” on January 6th in the new year, right around the calendar!!

Each year these shows are always a blast! And, as always, there is NO COVER to be part of the fun. Get there early, because there aren’t a lot of seats and tables. You are free to take photographs and film videos, and that includes sending out live performances via Facebook.

Until, I want to wish everyone a fantastic Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. And of course a Happy & Healthy 2018 and beyond.


Remember: You don’t have to go to the Ocean to Hear the Surf. Just swing by my monthly (Every First Saturday) SURF-ROCK SHINDIG performances
