Southern Surf Stomp! presents The Out Of Limits, The Surge!, The Backyardbirds

The Out Of Limits hail from the far reaches of our solar system via Greenville, North Carolina.  The five piece outfit plays a sort of spaced theme surf a la Man or Astro-man? and while their demeanor may be a bit campy, rooted in schlocky sci-fi idioms, their music is anything but.  The songs are well written with interesting arrangements and have obviously required much thought.  Playing out their human roles, these gentlemen are also avid supporters of the surf and instrumental music scene, with a focus on our thriving Southern syndicate.

I hold a certain sense of pride that July's show will mark our sixteenth(!) Southern Surf Stomp and the first for a band to return.  It is truly a testament to the wealth of great music in this genre.  Of course I the band about which I write is Atlanta's own legends The Surge.  Armed with their signature great wall of amps along with a brand new release, the boys are sure to blow the roof off of Kavarna and once again educate the audience with how surf music is, and should be, done.

The Backyardbirds feature an all-star cast of Atlanta musicians including The Surge's Frank Mako.  They play the jangly sounds of the 1960's British invasion with stunning accuracy.

While on the subject of Atlanta all-stars and veterans, we will once again be joined by our resident DJs, The Fringe Factory, which will be spinning choice 45's from their vast collection.
