Surfer Blood coming to Crowbar in Tampa
But before they get stuck with that boring gig, they've got some headlining shows coming up -- and one of them is in Tampa.
The West Palm Beach retro-grunge-punks (picture a much more raw and ragged Weezer) have become one of Florida's biggest indie success stories in recent years, alongside the likes of Twin Shadow and Sleigh Bells (we're counting them!). Singles like Swim and Twin Peaks made them one of 2010's biggest buzz bands, according to everyone from Spin to Rolling Stone. They last played in our area at the State Theatre in September. Said our reviewer:
What Surfer Blood have created is uniquely their own. Each song is full of little twists and turns. They don’t rely on sheer volume to get their point across, but use it in bursts to accent the subtle moods and textures created with just hints of fuzz on the guitars. Live, Surfer Blood delivered on all the hype that surrounds them.
It'll be nice to have them back.
