Hailing from the unlikely locale of Huntsville, Ala., surf-rock quartet Daikaiju deliver a beautifully twisted take on one of rock’s most invigorating strains. Appearing live in Kabuki-inspired face paint, the band mutates traditional surf-rock idioms by employing a variety of beats and dynamics as backdrops alongside punk and prog flavors, resulting in a high-octane idiosyncratic blend. Daikaiju issued two new releases last year, the Flight of Garuda 7” and Phase 2, both of which they are currently touring to support. With a handful of tour stops in the Dayton area over the past couple of years, it’s likely that their appearance at Blind Bob’s could be an exceptional opportunity to catch a band at the peak of their powers. Daikaiju will perform on Sunday, April 24 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth St. Also on the bill are Idolss. Admission is $5 for 18 & up. Doors open at 9 p.m. For more information, visit www.daikaiju.org.
