4th Annual Ho-Daddy Recap

December 21st, 2012 No comments

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to Byrne’s last night in support of the Mid-Ohio Foodbank!  Crazy great time that included some very unexpected highlights…

– Blue Jackets hero Leo Welsh stepped in to sing his trademark renditions of “Oh, Canada” and “The Star-Spangled Banner” which had everyone, including we Surfici, belting it out to the rafters!
– Pat Byrne blowing our carnivorous minds by busting out mason jars full of BACON.
– The wildest rendition of “Apes of Wrath” we’ve ever played.

But the big news is that, thanks to your generosity, the 4th Annual Ho-Daddy raised MORE THAN $800 IN DONATIONS!!

That’s a huge, huge number that blew our expectations away and means big things for hundreds of Ohioans this holiday season.

So thanks again for your support of local music, local business and, most importantly, an incredible local charity – we’re already looking forward to next year’s show!

Skateboard Sapiens??

December 12th, 2012 No comments

The band’s favorite skateboarding sapien, Taylor Nawrocki, was in Italy for a couple months, tering up the sidewalks and blowing their gelato-addled minds with his deft bipedalism.

Check it this killer video of Taylor, who bears more than a passing resemblance to one drum-fisted Surfeci we know…

Maybe we’ll see The Ecola Virus in Part 3???

Studio Sapiens?!?!

October 3rd, 2012 No comments

That’s right… at long last, the Mighty Mammals of Australosurfecus are making a brief migration into a studio environment for your ultimate listening pleasure!

We’ve booked a short session with local mix-meister, Dan Boyd, on October 28th to record our first EP. We’re currently planning to lay down tracks for six songs, and while we’re not 100% locked in on the list, it will definitely include both old and new Surfecus tunes as we try to showcase the broad spectrum of audible ridiculousness we’re capable of.

The timing is also to get the album done and back in time for this year’s Holiday Ho-Daddy Benefit Show, ensuring that you’ll all have something really special to throw in people’s stockings ‘n such this holiday season!

Because nothing says, “I’m somewhat fond of and/or partially obligated to you” quite like six tracks of garage surf madness!
