Asbury Park's Skate & Surf festival is this weekend, and right beforehand three of the more exciting bands on the lineup are playing a nearby show in New Haven, CT. Hot Rod Circuit (who are back with their Sorry About Tomorrow lineup this year), Small Brown Bike, and The So So Glos will play CT venue Toad's Place on Saturday (5/16) with openers Smoke Signals. It's the first show since 2011 for both HRC and SBB, and HRC are also saying this is their only show besides Skate & Surf. Tickets are on sale.

Small Brown Bike, whose last NYC show was Cake Shop in 2010, are also playing Bled Fest, Heavy Montreal, and Wrecking Ball this year.

HRC and SBB are both in our list of ten bands we're excited to see at Skate & Surf. Listen to some of their stuff, below...
