- San Diego's Deadbolt fuse twangy surf with morbid tales.
The band, which plays S.A. Friday, has built a cult following in the U.S. and Europe by crafting odes to psychotic clowns, homicidal truck drivers and south-of-the-border danger. Its mix of reverb-drenched surf and rockabilly rumble provides an appropriately lowbrow backdrop for singer Harley Davidson's deadpan tales of terror.
Potentially adding to the chills, Deadbolt is known for whipping out power tools during live sets and showering audiences with sparks. So, there's also that for the admission price — and a solid lineup of local support including Bent Gents, Harvey McLaughlin and Sanchovics.
