This local band has stayed loyal to the genre of '60s instrumental surf-rock

AQUALADS You can practically hear the waves crashing within these Charlotte natives' music, which hearkens back to the days of The Chantays and Dick Dale. Formed in 1997, Aqualads have stayed loyal to the genre of '60s instrumental surf-rock through tremolo guitar picking and heavy reverb. With four albums under its belt, the quartet spends June as the artist-in-residence at Snug Harbor. Aqualads' lineup has gone through changes over the years, but current members Darrell Ussery, Jimmy King, Jeremy DeHart and Greg Walsh consistently deliver tight, groovy instrumental lines that recall sand, surf and high-waisted bathing suits. 9 p.m. Free. Snug Harbor.
