Las Vegas surf rock band Thee Swank Bastards are set to play at two New Jersey venues this week. The band will be performing along with Dead & Gone and Welter on Friday, June 29 at The MillHill Basement in Trenton, and on Tuesday, July 3 the Brighton Bar in Long Branch. When listening to the track “Getaway Car” off of the album Get Intimate, I immediately thought of 1960s California surf-inspired music that girls on the beach would hula hoop to. Now that the summer is here, their shows will certainly put you in a beach and sun-kissed state of mind.
