Jeff's Weekly Pick: Surfer Blood @ Bar Pink March 26, 2010

When one starts naming their favorite band of the week, the usual suspects tend to reside in indie hotbeds such as Brooklyn, or Austin, or the Pacific Northwest. Enter the unassuming lads from West Palm Beach, Surfer Blood.These guys are on quite a roll of late, while constant touring and radio play are fueling the fires making them a must see live act.
Last Thanksgiving eve I had the pleasure of witnessing their live set at The Casbah and it was nothing short of amazing. In fact, due to some unforeseen van issues, the band barely made their set time. Things like this do happen, so it was on with the short yet blistering show. Songs were from their full length, Astrocoast. Heck, these guys hardly look old enough to down a beer or ten.
Touring in every nook and cranny from coast to coast brings Surfer Blood back to our fair city, this time to North Park's Bar Pink. A friendly word of advice: arrive early since weekends tend to bring out the best (and sometimes the worst) of the many patrons at the small establishment. I am working up a sweat just writing about their upcoming show. For those under 21, you can watch an in-store performance with The Morning Benders earlier in the evening at M-Theory Records.

Turbo Fruits and Lanterns set the stage.
