The first Mini Surf fest was held in 2012 and featured Daikaiju, Kill Baby Kill, The Monterreys, Necronomikids, The Mystery Men?, and The High Fidelics. Originally put together as a last minute effort to provide some traveling bands a warm-up show the night before Clarkston Surf Fest in Atlanta, Georgia, the event ended up drawing an unusually large crowd, bringing the venue Das Hause to near capacity. With the success of the event, intentions were to turn this into an annual event. However, efforts to do so never proved fruitful, as schedules with venues and bands never seemed to match up. But with the newly cemented Birmingham, AL venue Syndicate Lounge, the stars have aligned allowing for a continuation of what began so many years ago.
Once again thrown together as a last minute effort to provide a warm-up show for traveling bands playing a Saturday festival, Mini Surf Fest II is a bit of a gorilla effort. Thanks to a supportive venue, street team, and bands, we have been able to pull this lineup together in a few short weeks.
