    Surfbort

    Post-Punk

    Surfbort, a four-piece punk band from Brooklyn, New York made up of David Head, Alex Kilgore, Sean Powell and led by Dani Miller, channels inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music. Surfbort’s live experience is visceral and confrontational. Their feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship. All are welcome in the SURFBORT FREAK FAMILY!

    Fresh off a tour with The Black Lips after playing this year’s Coachella, the band just released ‘Bort to Death’ a raw 4-track 7” on Hozac Records and "Romance" a dreamy 2-track flexi on Cult Records.

    In the last three years they have supported acts such as The Dickies, Thee Oh Sees, Fat White Family, White Fang, Martin Rev, The Garden, Tijuana Panthers, The Mystery Lights, Tomorrows Tulips, Sunflower Bean, DIIV, GOGGS, The Dune Rats, Leftover Crack etc, Meatbodies, Ex-Cult, Hinds etc.

    A favorite among local artists, it is no wonder when Julian Casablancas caught wind of the Surfbort’s electrifying energy, he signed them to Cult Records. Stay tuned for more from Cult Records and the band

    The Fabulous Downey Brothers

    Pop

    "If Devo and Pee-Wee Herman had had six lovechildren, they might have hoped to create something like the technicolor herky-jerky circus that is the Fabulous Downey Brothers. Of all Seattle bands, FDB easily wins the “best large foam-based headwear” award with its freak-chic statement pieces that range from huge silver face-triangles to sparkly forehead spirals, fur-covered blobs, and elongated iridescent tube hats. The group’s music, inspired by the asymmetrical, staccato sounds of XTC, the B-52s. and Oingo Boingo, sounds like it’s blaring out of a mad scientist’s music factory with production levels set at mega-overdrive. The band urges audiences to “Work harder!” in its most recent single of that name, and witnessing the hyper-stimuli of the painstakingly choreographed neon-cabaret live will make you wish you’d done exactly that. FDB puts most lazy, sleepy bands in Seattle to shame. If you don’t have fun at this show, you’re probably brain dead." - KELTON SEARS of seattleweekly.com
