The Inexplicable Surfer Blood Marnie Stern Connection, Plus An Apology
Surfer Blood got some swagger! When last we saw these kids in town, we had them figured for CMJ-style human sacrifice; the next day they played the second or third set of an appalling 12-show run and called the Voice out for doubting them. Then they were dazed kids; now they hold things down over New Year's in NYC and get welcomed with open arms by resident guitar queen Marnie Stern. Plus their show at the Bowery Ballroom with the Drums next week is already sold out. And their ace Astro Coast isn't even out till January 19th. So here is where we apologize for predicting that they'd break up back in October. It was more love and concern than casting aspersions but when you're wrong you're wrong. [BV]
