Surf | Dick Dale 

**UPDATE: This show has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.**

With its blurred staccato of rapidly picked notes, its rhythmic thunder, and the roar of its reverb-drenched volume, the music of surf-guitar godfather Dick Dale is full-on primal, savage, and untamed. It's the call of the wild, the scream from the jungle. It's big, bad, and menacing. This mastery of the Stratocaster's rhythm, volume, and musical imagery have made him one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time. As with all rock 'n' roll, Dale blames it on the beat. "I got all my rhythms from Gene Krupa," he told me in an interview last year. And since his debut in the late 1950s, Dale has not lost one ounce of his power. But rumor has it this is Dale's last tour. This may be your last chance to witness the man harness the lightening. Great White Caps opens.

Dick Dale performs Friday, July 19, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water St., $25-$30,
