Going to a show at Santos Party House during CMJ is only worthwhile if you’re going to stay the whole night there or if you’re going to see something amazing. Since Santos isn’t near the real scene of shows (Arlene’s, Piano’s, Living Room, Crash Mansion), it’s annoying to head over there but we still made the trek out to catch Surfer Blood. We were “treated” to a twenty minute set of mumbled uninspired music. If you wanted to see a band that wasn’t feeling it, you just had to be at Santos Party House at 9pm to see Surfer Blood. Maybe the guys were dreading playing almost a dozen shows for the full week but it would’ve been nice to see some energy out of the band for the first night of CMJ. Are they better than their performance this night? Yes, but anyone who witnessed this performance may not know that. Check out a few pics below.
