They’re souped up for thrills and there’s no limit to what they’ll do!
— tagline for Hot Rods To Hell (1967)
We were joined at mid-show via phone by Barry Pirkola of Duluth’s Hoot Owls. The Owls will be playing at Saturday’s Surf Stomp at the Hexagon Bar. We talked about the challenges of being a surf’n‘hot rod band in Duluth, traditional hot rods and their great new album, Alien Scrapyard.
