With the release of "Stoked On You" are you excited to take The Aquadolls on tour? Oh yeah!! I am so ready to play a bunch of shows! Where would you go? I really want to travel the world and go everywhere. First we should tour the USA, then hit Europe, Japan, Brazil, the works! I know we have fans all over the world and I want to play a show for all of them! How many Burgeramas have you been to? Funny story, but the first year they had Burgerama, I was supposed to go but I actually got caught ditching school by my mom and she ripped my ticket up and I couldn't go, which really made me sad, but now it's our third year in a row playing and we're stoked! How would you describe Burgerama to somebody that hasn’t been there? It's a really fun music festival. Lots of people, lots of moshing, sweat, and good times. Who are you most excited to see perform at Burgerama 4? Ty Segall!!

Volcom Volcanic Rockout With The GROWLERS
The Volcom Volcanic Rock Out Tour landed back in Hawaii this season! After a couple years off, it was time to bring some good vibes and live music to the island of Oahu. There are all types of walk of lives in Hawaii during the winter months. This year Volcom called up their buddies ‘The Growlers’ and told them to pack their aloha shirts and boardies, they’re going to Hawaii! Life on the road for these guys usually consists of long cross-country drives in a dirty tour bus with no sleep for weeks. I’m sure that can be fun, but a trip to Hawaii with the Volcom crew sounds much better. The Growlers JOJ (Just Off The Jet) “Beach Goth” is an understatement… The band arrived to Hawaii in polyester pants, Reyn Spooner shirts, pale white skin and frothing for a surf. Not many people go straight from the airport to Makaha. We got the call from Russ Keaulana and the west side boys to come down for some welcoming Waianae hospitality. You can’t pay for the treatment that The Growlers got to experience. Yeah California and Australia have its qualities, but good waves and fresh food in Hawaii is the best. Scott Montoya livin the soft dream. Photo: Tai Vandyke The first show kicked off in Honolulu on a wild Friday night. Volcom rented a warehouse in the middle of China Town and turned things up! The Growlers grew up playing in empty warehouses, so this was a good start for the tour. Tons of fans from all over the island showed up and rocked the place till the end of time. That night ended with smiles and dollar bills at the famous Femme Nu. Warehouse Party The Kaka'Ako Warehouse Andrew Doheny, Delon Ranger, Ford Archbold and some groupies! The next morning was a little slow and rough as the band crawled out of the van at the Volcom House. The Pipe Master was on and the band hung out at the house and watched the comp from the deck. After a few hours the contest was called off for the day so the band went over to Turtle Bay and sipped Mai Tais till their show at the Surfer Bar. This show was a good ol’ fashion blow out. Surfer The Bar was packed shoulder to shoulder and The Growlers rocked the joint till last call. Surfer The Bar. Photo: Sean Reilly Matt Taylor and the only leather jacket in Hawaii!?

Photo: Sean Reilly The last show of the tour was held at the Volcom House right after the Pipe Masters final day. If you watched the final or have any idea, I’m sure you can imagine what went down. Thanks to Pacifico, there was plenty of beer for the few hundred people that showed up in the yard. This show was magical and much needed after such an amazing year of surfing. Thanks to Growlers, Clint Moncata and the rest of the Volcom Hawaii family, that was unreal! Until next year when spam turn into steak and when Primos turn into champagne…! Welcome to Pipeline.
