Daikaiju w/ The Royal Tinfoil 

When: Wed., May 14 2014
Price: $5

punk/garage, 10 p.m.

Landing an interview with a group of Godzilla-influenced psychedelic surf-punk rockers who thrive on dramatics can be difficult. So it was with utter delight that the City Paper received some very in-character updates from Alabama-based Daikaiju. Known on the live circuit for their Kabuki masks and mesmeric thrashing, the band had this to say about their upcoming show: “DAIKAIJU SPECIAL ATTACK TO CREATE MAXIMUM GOLDEN SHOWER OF DELIGHT!!!” Daikaiju (Japanese for “giant monster”) has toured extensively enough over the past decade to garner a devout following, first, throughout the South before they showed the world what a quartet of surf-rock instrumentalists can really do. Daikiju was recently named by Time Out Beijing as the Best Show by a Foreign Touring Act. Their spring U.S. tour will celebrate the release of the single “Spiral Serpent Strike,” which appeared in February on the international surf compilation Monsters of Surf. —Kelly Rae Smith WEDNESDAY
