Vintage Dick Dale video

Dick Dale, the Father of Surf Guitar, is coming to The Ritz 10-7-2016. I mention this to friends and all I hear is “crickets” (except for Zoidy:  “Shut up!”). So for those of you who aren’t familiar with him, here’s some vintage video from his gig at the old Cactus Club in downtown San Jose (courtesy of Bay Area Backstage):
