Speaking of soundtracks, there's a new local band out called Surf Cinema which plays, yes, you guessed it--surf soundtrack music. One step beyond usual suspects like the Mermen, or Los Straitjackets, Surf Cinema is more multimedia oriented with beach party, car crash, Western, claymation and other random clips projected onstage during its live shows. Visuals are always a good idea with instrumental bands, though we'll see if Surf Cinema can ever live up to Estradasphere's live extravaganza. The former plays the Aptos Club on Nov. 10 and the latter hits the Vets Hall this Friday, Oct. 19.
