 They weren’t going to play, but one dedicated fan went to the bank across the street and paid them out of his own pocket.  And they put on a wicked show chock full of biting surf guitar licks, frenetic, unstoppable  drumming and plenty of punk intensity.

 They played much of their brand new CD “ It’s Getting Weird,” and a couple of older originals “ This Wave Sucks” as well as some surf classics like “Misirlou.”
 The audience formed a mini-mosh pit and were having a whole lot of fun.

 The Tubuloids were pretty loud, so you couldn’t really hear any of the vocals, but they were a lot of fun.

At the end of their set, frontman /vocalist Kevin Baxter did some crowd  surfing on an actual surfboard emblazoned with the Tubuloids‘ name.

 They added some punk to their set and  hard rocking originals like “ Crashing Down,” powered by Bridgette Yarwood’s soaring multi-octave voice, grinding guitar from brother Richard and deadly drumming from other brother Brendon plus big bass from Brian Kostersky.
They also added some brand new songs like “#Slay.”
