It’s well along into autumn, when thoughts run to Halloween and pie and those mischief-filled nights leading up to Election Day. But a few miles down the coast there’s still time for one more beach bonfire, one more surf movie night, one more late-season daytripper.
Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit features an interview with none other than Australia’s two-time world surfing champion Beau Young (right), who comes to our fair Shore for the first time this Friday night for special event.
It’s as a singer and songwriter that the recently retired Young pays a visit and it turns out that Beau knows chords as well as Beau knows boards, since he’ll be showcasing songs from his just-released second album on a program with the acclaimed film Searching For Michael Peterson. It’ll be a rare look at the documentary profile of the troubled 1970s surfing superstar known as “MP,” and it all goes down at a beloved landmark that’s similarly been to hell and back the historic Carousel building on the Asbury circuit.
It’s all here, as just a taste of all that’s weird and wonderful in the weekend days to come, at the outer limits of Red Bank oRBit.
