Surfer Blood @ BVSXSW (more by Tim Griffin)
Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood kick off their tour with Trail of Dead at Bowery Ballroom on April 29th. That show is sold out, though tickets are still available for the one they're playing at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 13th (note: original tour dates said this show was at Brooklyn Bowl, but it's Music Hall).

And, Surfer Blood and the Babies have been added to the Wavves/Guided By Voices Nothside Festival show happening in McCarren Park on June 18th. Tickets are still on sale. Doors for that show are at 3pm, The Babies play at 4, Surfer Blood play at 5, Wavves at 6, and then GBV at 7.

Sharon Van Etten was recently added to the Beirut show at the same venue.

Surfer Blood, Sharon Van Etten and The Babies are 3 of 65 bands that were just added to the Northside Festival.

Wavves are also playing a free NYC show later in the summer.

So who was it on the Tiger Mountain twitter account that accidentally leaked the Surfer Blood announcement weeks ago?

This is not a "Surfer Blood" show. It's a bunch of solid up and coming young bands opening for Guided by Voices. Anyone who has seen a GBV show understands... shit just happens. I saw GBV with The Strokes at The Apollo like 10 years ago. People still talk about it...

At least Surfer Blood sounds like a cool band name. I don't know how the music is though.

Surfer Blood's album is very catchy and listenable. Pretty much all the songs are quite good.

Their album may be good, but dude can't sing for shit live.

I love Surfer Blood's record but last summer I was less than impressed with their set at P4k. hopefully them in the context of opening up for my favorite band ever will make it better...

I can't believe Surfer Blood thinks this live video is good enough of a performance to share on their YouTube page:

A great signing you've got there, Warner Music Group!

great link you got there, genius

11:52 is clearly one the true genius this world has been looking for. The concept of copy & paste is foreign to this individual ~ !

P.S. that is a terrible live performance

Wavves is gonna kill it. You haters will see!

Why is Cassie Ramone's band opening? BV readers clearly would have preferred Kickball Katy's band.

Good call 12:35.

BV readers clearly would have preferred Kickball Katy's bikini top filled with mashed chickpeas.

Good call, 12:47.

yeah this show will be um...insane, only 1 band out of 4 is worth seeing(GBV). The other 3 sound exactly the same... ... ..............

As we know John Paul Pitts and Tyler Schwarz originally didn't like each other in high school - glad they managed to get through this teen anxiety and produce such great music for us.

They are at the Tennessee Theater Knoxville this week - got tickets so watch my dust.
