Southern Surf Stomp! presents Fiend Without A Face, The KBK, Bad Friend, Fringe Factory DJs

Fiend Without A Face is one of Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds' side projects that explores a twisted sort of roots music from surf, rockabilly, bluegrass, blues, and more.  The music is whimsical, performed with a seemingly tongue in cheek nod to equal parts horror movie, circus sideshow act, and burlesque show.

The KBK (formerly Kill, Baby...Kill!) is one of my all time favorite live acts, and their recording output ain't half bad either!  The bands shows are devastating and hit you right in the chest, which makes it understandable why they have picked up the post-apocalyptic theme.

Bad Friend play songs written by other people.  In doing so, they lead the listener down dark corridors or perhaps the bottom of a bottle.  Nothing is off limits for the quintet, from ABBA to the Cramps, somehow making it their own to form some kind of Gothic Americana.

Our resident DJs The Fringe Factory will be there to spin spooky hits between bands.
