The cause of a record heatwave across America has been found: Dick Dale's national tour. The King of Surf Guitar, Dick Dale, left his desert home earlier this season and temperatures have been rising ever since.
Dick is on tour with his band, including son Jimmy on drums. Tour dates this summer include venues across Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia, before returning to California in August. The photo, by Lana Dale, is of a recent performance in Nebraska.

The Sun Runner has named Dick and Jimmy Dale as Desert Treasures for their cultural accomplishments.
