The Wailing Wall gives us Dude Summer pt. 2

Jason Diamond

I spent a good portion of the summer of 2009 drunk.

I remember a few things from it: people talking about Neon Indian, drinking “frozen gargoyles” from the Turkeys Nest, documenting the quick rise and fall of Wavves, buying a Panama hat, and also riding a dirtbike.

I also remember dudes. I remember saying that “Dudes Doin' What Dudes Do” would be like the Revolution Summer of 1985; Few believed me, but today I got my first glimpse of the influence the phrase had on popular culture via this video of Jesse Rifkin of The Wailing Wall and his buddies jamming in a kitchen, and uttering the holy phrase that is threatening to make a comeback in 2010: “Dudes being dudes.”
