Dick Dale started performing with his guitar at the Rinky Dink Ice Cream Parlor at this corner beginning in 1959.
By 1961, the film Gidget had been released and sparked an interest in surfing culture. Dale had a large enough crowd to start playing the Rendezvous Ballroom, and his first big hit with the Del-Tones was "Let's Go Trippin'."
