Susan SurfTone 

When: Wed., Sept. 26, 9 & 11 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Summer may be almost officially over, and the Bay Area may be a relatively crappy place to go surfing anyway, but hey, that's all the more reason to go see Susan SurfTone perform two band-backed, go-go-dancer-aided shows at Forbidden Island (1304 Lincioln Ave., Alameda) on Wednesday, Sept. 26: She's the undisputed queen of immersive, garage-influenced, instrumental third-wave surf-rock, delivered with all the velocity of a punk show and a swaggering stage presence that has more in common with the lineage of bad-ass lady guitarists SurfTone's clearly embedded in than it does with the puka-shelled passivity you might typically associate with surf guitar. Bonus: It all goes down at Forbidden Island, Alameda's very own explosion of tikified splendor, which means you can take all this in while drinking a delicious blended beverage. Summer isn't over until you surrender. 9 p.m., $5.
