Announcing “Surf City Blitz” 2018

logo surf city blitz

I received this notice yesterday and since I am heading out of town for a few days in a couple of hours, I programmed it to run on its own while I try to rest before the flight out of NYC. As you can see this is another music festival that takes place outside of the metro area in which we wander but it sure sounds interesting. Take a glance at the full press release down below.

The Press Release:
Surf City Blitz brings one of the greatest punk rock lineups in the history of Southern California—including some of the biggest bands to come out of Orange County—together with Roland Sands Presents The Moto Beach Classic’s world-class motorcycle racing, and more on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 at the world famous Huntington State Beach as a part of the SeaLegs Live Event Series. This new weekend destination festival will feature an all-star lineup of punk rock legends performing on the shore of the Pacific Ocean in picturesque Orange County, California. With the support of California State Parks, this incredible event is sure to make a splash in its inaugural year.

The daily music lineup for Surf City Blitz is as follows (subject to change):
Saturday October 27: The Offspring, Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, FEAR, T.S.O.L., Snuff, Mad Caddies, Voodoo Glow Skulls and more
Sunday October 28: Social Distortion, Rancid, Bad Religion, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Interrupters, The Wrecks, Aaron Lee Tasjan and more

To top things off, the second annual Moto Beach Classic combines Super Hooligan street bike flat track racing, drag and mini bike racing, art, custom motorcycles and, of course, the love of two wheels. The event will feature a dirt track on the sand for the first time ever and two days of Super Hooligan flat track racing.

Mike Ness of Social Distortion said, “This is an incredible line-up of bands over two days, and combined with Roland Sand’s Moto Beach Classic, this is going to be an awesome show. To be a part of an event like this that’s never been done before is pretty cool. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Dexter Holland of The Offspring added, “Can’t wait to hang out on the beach with some of our SoCal punk friends and idols when we play Surf City Blitz.”

Roland Sands of Roland Sands Design, founder and producer of The Moto Beach Classic, explained, “The Moto Beach Classic is coming back bigger than ever as the Super Hooligans join the Surf City Blitz this October! It’s been a dream of mine to build a dirt track on the beach and we are making that happen with berm bleachers next to a massive stage with the sickest OC lineup of all time. The Offspring, Social D, Rancid, Pennywise, Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies…the list keeps going. It’s a moto lover’s dream with drag races, mini road race, bike show, moto inspired art and much more. This is the only event you have to be at in 2018!”

John Reese, Surf City Blitz festival producer and founder of Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) said, “We couldn’t ask for a more perfect setting to enjoy performances from the greatest collection of punk rock ever assembled in SoCal, combined with the mind-blowing excitement of the Moto Beach Classic, right on the sand at Southern California’s world famous Huntington State Beach! This massive event will be remembered for years to come! I want to thank California State Parks for allowing us to hold the event at such an ideal location.”

(2017 Moto Beach Classic at Bolsa Chica State Beach)

Last year’s inaugural Moto Beach Classic was a one-day festival where, from sunup to sundown, SeaLegs at the Beach in Bolsa Chica was at capacity and filled with lovers of all types of creativity and counterculture. At any given moment, engines could be heard on the purpose-built hooligan flat track, while waves crashed along the shore. Live music echoed throughout until the doors closed on what many thought was one of the most entertaining and authentic moto events to hit the coast of California in years. The full live broadcast from last year’s event can be seen here: https://youtu.be/dsCMyZaoFIg

Surf City Blitz at Huntington State Beach is located at: 21601 Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, CA, and the festival entrance will be at the corner of Magnolia and Pacific Coast Highway. Limited parking will be available near the festival site. Ride sharing, public transportation and carpooling are encouraged.

Surf City Blitz partners include: 95.5 KLOS FM, Rockstar Energy Drink, Black Feather, Health Ade, Cupcake Wines, Cosmic Fog, Wienerschnitzel, Sailor Jerry, BMW Motorcycles, Indian Motorcycles, Yamaha, Super Hooligan, Bell, Motul, Dunlop, K&N, Hurley, SOKFY, Cycle Zombie and Fast Surfboards.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As this is just an event announcement and for a spectactle that we shall not be attending, I will leave the added opinion to you guys so let me hear you!!! Is this something that excites you? Should be brave the adventure? Will you be paying our travel and lodging? If you said yes to that let’s talk LOL. All kidding aside, I wouldn’t mind being in the sun and surf during the Fall months as opposed to a potentially chilly NYC. I would have just fished the NY Comic Con by then so hey and adventure is always welcome but I digress. Until we meet again my fiends.

Opening: “It” @ Theaters Everywhere (9/8/2017)

Continuing along with some support of the upcoming Horror films of note, it’s time to make sure that you know that today is the official US wide opening for the adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel “It”. About a month ago I posted the full trailer which if you missed you can see HERE. Its really, really creepy. Take a look at the official theatrical poster and remind yourself of the premise and cast down below.

The Premise: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. (thanks Wiki).

The Cast:
Bill Skarsgård as It / Pennywise The Dancing Clown / Bob Gray
Jaeden Lieberher as Bill Denbrough
Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben Hanscom
Sophia Lillis as Beverly Marsh
Finn Wolfhard as Richie Tozier
Wyatt Oleff as Stanley Uris
Chosen Jacobs as Mike Hanlon
Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie Kaspbrak
Nicholas Hamilton as Henry Bowers
Owen Teague as Patrick Hockstetter
Logan Thompson as Victor “Vic” Criss
Jake Sim appears as Reginald “Belch” Huggins
Jackson Robert Scott as George Denbrough
Javier Botet as The Leper

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on my having quite the barrage of shows and contests to monitor along with a tad bit of everything else I will not be seeing this film during the early weeks of its theatrical run. I do hope to see it before its made its way to home video so lets see what happens. The advance word is that the film is quite scary and that is good by me, one really expects a film with a sinister monster clown type figure to terrify and this one should for sure. What about you readers? Will you be catching the film during the opening weekend or right after? Let me know down in the comments section below and if you should see it, please no spoilers of any kind. I hate that stuff and there is no need for it. Until next we meet.

Warner Brothers Pictures: Stephen King’s ” “It” Official Trailer #1

I’ve been trying to keep to my word about sharing more of the prominent Horror trailers and release day announcements as a part of my “On Screen” narratives because so many of our readers are fans of those things that go bump in the night. A few months ago we got a first teaser look at Warner Brothers Pictures adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” and back then I suggested you leave the lights on. Now with the official first trailer out to enjoy, I would think that checking your locks and windows first might be paramount. Enjoy, if you dare.

The Premise: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. (thanks Wiki).

I’ve mentioned that I’d be sharing more of the prominent Horror trailers and release day announcements as a part of my “On Screen” narratives in my quest to satisfy that interest niche of our global readership. With that said, its time to unveil the long anticipated and somewhat dreaded trailer for the upcoming movie “It” which is based on the novel by Horror master Stephen King. Take a look but keep the lights on while doing so.
