Hargo trading SoCal turf for Indian surf after Jan. 18 Normal Heights show

Retro-world rocker promises to post "Turban-cam" reports for Reader readers

"I kept it mellow during the holidays, kind of recharging my batteries for what is sure to be the busiest most exciting year yet for me and the band," says retro-world rocker Hargo. "My guitarist Sanjay Parekh and I are leaving January 19 to play the 2013 India Surf Festival in Orissa, India."

The Festival on the beaches of Orissa runs January 25 through 27 and will feature surfers, films, paddle-surfing, and art installations, as well as the musical performances. "It's the first of its kind in India, a very special experience and great opportunity for us to plant some seeds for a return with the full band." The event will also feature live music from Irish festival faves the Bahh Band, as well as atmospheric space rockers Antariksh, Argentina singer/songwriter Tom Becker, electro-yogi SHIHO the Purplehaze, Goa-based mixmaster Mista Hagen, Buenos Aires DJ 120 Dub, and reggae DJ Selecta Rulin' Fire.

None

As with his 2010 overseas sojourn (his first time in India since his sophomore year of high school), Hargo promises Reader readers that "Turban-Cam reports shall be posted again, as you might expect."

"A trip to India is, for me, as it should always be in my opinion, a journey to, across, and then finally, within. It's a place that just has a way of testing you, challenging the ego and pulling you away from mother Culture, to whose breast we often cling so tightly."

Locals will have a chance to catch the entire Hargo Band on Friday, January 18, at ArtLab (3536 Adams Avenue).

None

Hargo's song “Crying for John Lennon” was produced by onetime Beatles producer Spector, intended for use in a documentary film called Strawberry Fields, for which Spector was being interviewed. It turned out to be one of the last songs Spector would work on before beginning his 19 years-to-life prison sentence, having been convicted of second degree murder.

“[Spector] is actually really shy,” said Hargo. “He doesn’t always look people in the eye...in fact, he had his back turned to me when I first played him the CD demo. When he turned around, he told me it reminded him of John [Lennon], especially the slap echo I used on my voice.”
