Last Night: Surfer Blood At House Of Blues

Surfer Blood House of Blues Bronze Peacock Room March 22, 2011

Thanks to the success of their debut album, last year's Astro Coast, Surfer Blood quickly became one of 2010's most sought-after indie-rock bands, their catchy garage-surf-rock singles topping myriad year-end lists.

Aftermath caught Surfer Blood's set at last summer's Pitchfork Music Festival; the crowd practically overflowed from the allotted area of the fest's smaller "C" stage--six months after the release of their debut album, and these young Floridians already required a bigger stage at one of the nation's most credible music festivals.

Thankfully, we had the opportunity to see them in the House of Blues' Bronze Peacock Room Tuesday night, a venue light-years more intimate than any fest setting. Fresh off their SXSW buzz, Surfer Blood took the stage following fellow Floridian openers Holiday Shores and The Dewars.
