There’s no place like Byrne’s for the Holidays!

December 9th, 2011 No comments

Once again we find ourselves throwing on the animal skins, waxing up the boards and ripping up the Paleolithic surf on the Glacial Moraine – That’s right, it’s time for the Third Annual Holiday Ho-Daddy Benefit Concert!!

This year we’re back at the ever-accommodating Byrne’s Pub in Grandview, playing every song we know – and probably a few we don’t! – to raise money for one of our favorite causes, the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

When: Thursday, December 22nd at 8:30 p.m.
Where: Byrne’s Pub – 1248 West 3rd Ave. – Columbus 43212
Cover: $5.00 donation to the FoodBank

The Mid-Ohio Foodbank has been on the front lines of hunger for more than thirty years, and through its network of partner organizations provide more than 50,000 meals every day to hungry Ohio families. What’s even more amazing is that the Foodbank turns every dollar donated into eight dollars worth of groceries, making them not only one of the most helpful organizations on the block, but also masters of altruistic alchemy!

Cover for entry will be $5.00 at the door, and as always every dollar of that goes directly to the Foodbank. We’ll also be accepting additional donations above the door donation all night, so any time the mood strikes you can toss a couple extra bucks into the copper cauldron on the Byrne’s stage and know that you’re making a big difference to Ohio families in need.

Keep checking back for the official poster and set list for this year’s show, and we hope to see you all at Byrne’s on the 22nd!

Set List Announced for Holiday Ho-Daddy Benefit Show!

December 29th, 2010 No comments

Just got back from a rip-snortin’ rehearsal where we locked in our set list for this Thursday’s benefit show at Byrne’s Pub. At a full twenty songs, it’s easily the biggest set we’ve put together, and it’s a non-stop thrill ride from break to beach!

Every cover song we know is thrown in there – including some new additions – and we’re also bringing every last original song that’s ready for public consumption out to play. The result is that you’re never more than five minutes away from something you recognize and something you’ve never heard before, which is a pretty cool place to be!

So get set to get wet, and come out to help us raise money for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank this Thursday at 8:00 pm!

2nd Annual Holiday Ho-Daddy Announced!!

December 15th, 2010 No comments

It’s that time of year again, when we trek across the frozen plains in search of a warm stage, a good time and a chance to raise some money for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank!

It’s the Second Annual Holiday Ho-Daddy Benefit Concert, and it’s just two short weeks away!

The Mid-Ohio Foodbank has been helping feed hungry Ohioans for 30 years, and through their network of partner organizations help provide more than 50,000 meals every day across Ohio. Those meals make a huge difference in the lives of needy Ohio families, and we consider it a privilege to invite everyone out to help raise money for an organization that’s working to end hunger in our community.

We’re also proud to announce that this year’s show will be held at perennial watering hole Byrne’s Pub in Grandview! Byrne’s have graciously opened their doors to host the show, which means that every last dime will go directly to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank!

When: Thursday, December 30th at 8:00 p.m.
Where: Byrne’s Pub – 1248 West 3rd Ave. – Columbus 43212
Cover: $3.00 donation to the FoodBank

For every dollar the Foodbank receives, they distribute eight dollars worth of groceries. Because of this, we’ll also be accepting additional donations above the door donation, so when the Power of Surf compels you, you’ll be able to donate as much as you want to help the Foodbank end hunger in Ohio.

For our part, we’re working up our biggest set list yet! If we know it, we’re playing it, so we hope you’ll come out to join us on the 30th for an evening of Smithwick’s, Sapiens and Surf!

Hot Set List Announced for Hot Times!

September 7th, 2010 No comments

After much deliberation and chest-thumping, we’ve decided on an official set list for this Saturday’s show at the Hot Times Festival! This show marks a minor, unforeseen watershed for us, as we now have enough original tunes that we almost can’t play them all in a 45-minute festival format. We were worried one might have to be cut in the interest of time, but a late-night session around the fire yielded this break-neck set that elicited hearty grunts and approving clicks from us all.

And, for the first time anywhere, we’ll be playing our newest song, Sleepover at Camp Tsavo – a two-minute sprint that’ll hunt you down faster than the maneless lions that ate Val Kilmer’s career!

3:00 p.m. at the Hot Times Festival this Saturday, Sep. 11th. Hope to see you there!

Hot Times Festival – September 11, 2010
1. Rumble
2. Bahari Kali
3. Tough Crowd in Hartlepool
4. Surf’s Up at the Cape of Good Hope
5. To Zaire is Human
6. Walk Don’t Run
7. Sleepover at Camp Tsavo
8. Butch Cassowary & the Sundance Echidna
9. Can’t See the Loris for the Trees

Hot Times and a Surfing September!

August 18th, 2010 No comments
Necessarily Rhetorical Question: Have you ever thought to yourself, “Self, is there some kind of festival where I could see surf music, xydeco, belly dancing and those crazy cars with the baby dolls and Transformers glued all over them, all at the same time?”

If so, then you’ll be ape-static to hear that Australosurfecus has just been awarded a spot at this year’s Hot Times Community Music and Arts Festival!

When: Saturday, September 11th at 3:00 p.m.
Where: Hot Times Community Stage – 240 Parsons St. – Columbus 43215

This is the 34th year of the Hot Times Festival, and each year they bring an entertainment lineup so wild it makes an instrumental surf trio made up of ancient hominids seem right at home!

This will likely be the last time to see the guys au natural at an outdoor show before the weather turns and we all begin fashioning clothes of an insulatory nature from the indigenous mammal of your choosing, so get your grass skirt ironed out and we’ll see you at 3:00 p.m. on the 11th!

Australosurfecus – Tonight in Powell at 8:00 pm!

March 19th, 2010 No comments

Just a quick reminderism that we’re bringing the surf to Powell tonight at 8pm!

When: Friday, March 19th at 8:00 p.m.
Where: The Espresso Yourself Music Cafe – 50 W. Olentangy St. – Powell  43065

Like any good coffee shop, the EYMC is serving up a strong, eclectic blend this evening – owner Eric Ahlteen kicks things off at 7 with a solo set, followed by Australosurfecus at 8, the indie rock band Seven Biik Trilogy at 9 and the jazztacular Latin grooves of Kique Infinte at 10.

The EYMC is a great venue – part coffee shop, part art gallery and part performance venue – and it’s worth stopping by to see what they’ve done with the place.  So swing by early for a bite and a cuppa, and stay for the Surf!
