The Official Bumbershoot After-Party with Surfer Blood

Sunday’s going to be a busy day at Bumbershoot – Courtney! Weezer! – but if you’ve got any extra energy left after all that rock, the Hard Rock’s hosting a late night after-party featuring one of the year’s most buzzed-about indie bands. Surfer Blood will also play Bumbershoot on Monday, but they’re worth seeing twice – the Florida fivesome’s debut, this year’s Astro Coast, plays like a glorious, anthemic attempt to prove, once and for all, the un-toppable power of loud, smashing, and crunching electric guitars. None of the band members are over 24, which makes their impressively deft handle on their instruments even more astonishing. Also, they have a song about “Twin Peaks,” and we can take that as a local shoutout. With Dead Confederate, Futurebirds. ERIN K. THOMPSON
