Dick Dale, The Waterdogs

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Boston-born guitar legend Dick Dale may always be best known for something he did in 1962, a brilliantly nasty surf rendition of Eastern-Mediterranean standard "Misirlou," which returned to pop-culture prominence when it surfaced in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 masterpiece Pulp Fiction and then again in 2006 when Black Eyed Peas sampled it for "Pump It." And while the "King Of The Surf Guitar" and Longmont Potion Castle prank target hasn't dropped a proper album since 2001's Spacial Disorientation, he is somehow still touring his ass off at age 80 and, honestly, the dude still destroys. Night after night, while bombarded with health problems, Dale still trudges onstage with his bandana and skullet, shredding on a left-handed guitar that's been strung upside-down. Dale is currently touring behind this year's Santa Monica—Live On The Pier live album. —Joel Shanahan
