Night of the Wolf Moon

Trip Santa Monica

Wolf Moon

You know, there might be something to all this End-Of-The-World business because, that's right...

WE'RE BACK!

Now assuming we all survive the night, let us tell you what we have in store for

Saturday, January 26th, 2013:

It's the first FULL MOON of the new year and as legend has it was dubbed the Wolf Moon by ancient Native American tribes.  So no surprises when we picked this day to premiere our werewolf inspired music video -
Do You Say Your Prayers At Night? our first official music video since Send More Cops!

Joining us on this special night is The Slow Poisoner a one-man surrealistic rock and roll band from San Francisco. He's also a spiritual advice columnist at Pork Magazine who's prognostications of the herenow & hereafter - thrill with uncanny accuracy.

But wait - there’s more!

Keeping the party going will be Culver City’s The Bad Bad Things, a drunk rock garage fiesta fronted by powerhouse vocalist Kryss Deetch.  Prepare to walk the plank to margaritaville!

Finally, wrapping up the night is Moonshine Earl wanted for crimes against musicality in at least seven states and banned from every live venue within Boston's city limits. This liquored lothario will be making his west coast debut at Trip!

See you there!

Fall Cleaning

Alicia Martin Book Sculpture

While it's nowhere near completed, we've slowly but surely been making restorations to SM HQ. It's probably always going to be a "work-in-progress" but it has come a long way and we even got some very cool roommates in the process! (Click HERE to read more about them... ;-))

Most recently, we've been cleaning out the library and have LOTS of books looking for new homes! We're giving away everything from Differential Diagnosis of Oral Lesions to The Physics of Stereo/Quad Sound. Of course you could also take the lot of them an create your own Alicia Martín-esque sculpture. Makes no difference to us - Honest!

Give us a shout to take 'em away! Rx, SM

Surgeon Marta Doo Dah Parade

After spending the last couple of years shouting & singing about parades Surgeon Marta has finally decided to be in one themselves.  Mind you, not just any ol' parade but the world famous “Doo Dah” Parade in Pasadena!

What’s that you say?  You’ve heard of the “Rose Parade” but not the Doo Dah Parade? Well, never mind those corporate show-offs cuz next Sat. we’re gonna fix this crucial gap in your education.

Now in it’s 34th year the Doo Dah Parade is a fun for all celebration of carnival mayhem and DIY absurdity. In other words you’ll love it!!!

What are the details?  Simple really.  The parade kicks off at 11AM and admission is FREE. (Ample free street parking included...) So bring your folding chairs, your cameras and your biggest shout outs.

Afterwards we shall retire to The Colorado Bar where the inn keeper will provide tea and cucumber sandwiches while Surgeon Marta & Drunk in the Garage serenade you with a post royal wedding tribute of Oasis musak instrumentals.

Umm, alright maybe we’re not quite telling the truth in the last paragraph but there’s only one way you’re gonna find out!

See you there!

The End is High

The End is High

Lately we’ve been hearing some fantastical excuses (think Carrie Fisher w/ machine gun scene from “the Blues Brothers”) for why some of you guys can’t make it to our shows.   We know you love the girls, the g’damn punk rock and our sexy new costumes but let’s face it the simple truth is………you’re BROKE!

And no wonder, the world economy is still serving lemons and the tools responsible are squeezing every single last drop outta them.  Now we even have giant billboards up all over town predicting the end of the world on May 21st.

Well we say fuck these market manipulating war mongering dick holes. No matter what they do life will continue along with art, music and LOVE.

So this Sat. put your wallet back in your pocket, heat up some chocolate, kick off dem doggies and surf on over to www.ErrorFM.com @ 6pm (PST) for a medicinal shot of music, mirth and mayhem.

Streaming LIVE Around the Globe Sat. Feb. 26th - starting @ 6pm PDT on BuddhaMan's International Experience!

Hear you there!

God Save The Queens

Hey Everyone,

Our first show of 2011 is just around the corner!

We took time out at the end of last year for seasonal soakings, lunar realignments and the gestation of new Surgeon Marta melodies. So, while the new tunes are running around the nursery, we want you to come out and join us this Tuesday at Eleven Nightclub in West Hollywood.

As many of you know Surgeon Marta likes to deliver the rock n' roll with a certain theatrical flamboyance and it seems word has gotten around... This Tuesday the noise will be back in boy-town and a happy ending is guaranteed for all!

FREE Tues. - 2/22/11 - 10PM Eleven Nightclub 8811 Santa Monica Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90069

Scarlet Lady

Surgeon Marta's Scarlet Lady 09.25.2010

The whore of Babylon rides into town astride a 7-headed beast wreaking havoc and destruction everywhere. Her robes glow neon scarlet, the infamous colors of shame and promiscuity. It seems the end is truly nigh and yes as residents in a cultural center of debauchery we’re all going to Hell!

However let’s back it there up a minute because we do have it on good authority that this won’t actually happen till 2013. So stop the finger pointing and listen up...

This Saturday Surgeon Marta and our buddies The Bad Bad Things will throw down a Punk Rock Jamboree that’ll leave you spinning, grinning, sinning and ready for what’s happening in the next zip code over.

That’s right for one “all night” only GLOW the Art Rave returns to Santa Monica. So get your night started right in Culver City and then head on over and join in the “commotion by the ocean.”

One Candle

Surgeon Marta's One Candle 09.18.2010

There's something about parties especially birthday parties that always brings out the best in Surgeon Marta. Why only a few weeks ago we brought traffic to a complete standstill on Vermont Ave. Crowds were exiting a Greek Theater funk festival when we cranked up (on a front lawn) just down the road. Within minutes, like flies to the honey, hundreds had gathered to take the nite train from funky town to punky town.

The funniest part came right in the middle of Send More Cops when not one but two patrol cars managed to squeeze their way through with lights-a-flashing!!! Yes the party was over but the WTF expressions on the faces of the LAPD were priceless!

So can we promise you more mayhem this Sat? Well hells yeah!!! It's the Buddaman's Birthday Party!
Alan "Buddaman" Lohr was a pioneering DJ in the early days of KROQ with his metaphysical rock n' roll show "The 3rd Eye." Needless to say as KROQ started gagging on corporate cock the Buddaman jumped ship to what was then the new wild west... internet radio! Now with over 100,000 listeners Buddaman and ErrorFM are still keeping the man outta Rock n Roll.

Come celebrate with us this Saturday as we broadcast to the world LIVE from the The Aqua Lounge (you've seen it on HBO's Entourage) Surgeon Marta and cake cutting starts at 9:30pm SHARP with FREE ALL AGES admission up till 10pm so don't be late !!!

BuddhaMan's International Experience Special Birthday Edition
will also be streaming LIVE Around the World
Sat. Sept. 18th, 2010 starting @ 6pm PDT on on ErrorFM and on the AIR on 94.9FM in Hudson Valley, NY!

Play Date

Now as some of you may have heard America is in the middle of a Creativity Crisis. The numbers are real and scary. Sure you only have to look around you to see the results.

That's why you should join us this Saturday to re-ignite the sacred fires of creativity and beat back the corporate compliant gibberish that surrounds us all. Because over here at Surgeon Marta HQ we don’t
believe in crying in our hospital gowns. We say let the zombies dance, just don’t let them touch you - (unless they're trying to sell you official SM™ merch...)

Be there Saturday August 21st as we unite with fellow LA-based artists in presenting an audio/visual
Play Date to satisfy all your creative needs. Free food, Free drink, Free parking and Free All-Ages admittance to some loud nasty mad-dog zombie killing rock n roll!  With a deal this good and a schedule
that leaves you free to tear up the rest of Saturday night, excuses for non-attendance will not be accepted unless accompanied by a $20 bill and a really creative story...

Upstairs @ The Market Gallery / The City Market 1057 S. San Pedro St. Los Angeles, 90015 7PM - 10PM Get Directions Here
