Dick Dale on August 19

August 19. Cowabunga! The undisputed king of the surf guitar splashes our way for a painfully rare upstate summer show at Daryl’s House Club. Besides being the most influential player of the instrumental surf rock genre (guitarists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Johnny Ramone have worshipped him) the Southern California native is credited with inventing the style; Dale, now 78, has claimed he came up with his reverb-soaked sound as an attempt to evoke the feeling he had while hanging ten on his board on the wild Pacific Ocean waves. With his band the Del-Tones, Dale rocked the West Coast ballrooms of the early 1960s, firing off his trademark single-string staccato riffs on such incendiary hits as his signature reworking of the Greek folk tune “Misirlou” (1962), which Quentin Tarantino famously snagged for 1994’s Pulp Fiction soundtrack. Mishti opens. (Los Straitjackets tear it up August 8; Albert Lee riffs August 21.) 8pm. $35, $50. Pawling. (845) 289-0185; Darylshouseclub.com.
