South Florida indie rock heroes Surfer Blood will be back in the area for their April 20 show at Respectable Street in West Palm Beach and a stop at Bal Harbour Resort & Spa in Miami on April 22, but then we lose them to European audiences for a while. As Gob Bluth would say, "Come on!"
An exciting new tour pairing is in the offing for Surfer Blood's return to the U.S. in June, however. A 12-date run in early June -- including a stop at Miami's Grand Central on June 12 -- lines the gents up with the marvelous Morrissey-gaze of the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, a New York act that got this writer all worked up a while back with "Young Adult Friction." Also along for the ride is Hooray for Earth, another New York act that has no shortage of longing in the vocals -- the mesmerizing "Surrounded by Your Friends," and some more footage of Surfer Blood making a racket in a gas station, is waiting for you after the jump.
Two more Sunoco Surfer Blood jams. First, "Catholic Pagans":
