Surf Busters

For the past several years, the surf-rock gods known as The Intoxicators! have traveled south for the annual Hukilau festival (June 10-13) to help blow sharks out of the water with their Dick Dale-inspired sounds. Hailing from our glorious phallic-shaped state’s capital, the foursome has created energetic new surf instrumentals while applying a massive spin and sonic upgrade to the classics. With the recent shark attack that killed a kite boarder in Stuart, it’s a blessing they have decided to grace us with a preview performance this week. Best of all, the show is completely free. Consider it community service; those sharks have no idea what’s coming.

The Hukilau presents The Intoxicators! with the Gypsy Blue Acoustic Revue this Saturday at the world famous Mai Kai’s Molokai Bar (where else?). The free show starts at 6 p.m. at 3599 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-563-3272, or visit
