Tonight! Surfer Blood Tops Oil.Spill.Benefit Lineup at Propaganda

West Palm Beach's Surfer Blood

is giving back to the Florida coastline that in many ways is the band's

identity. Drenched with beach imagery formed on local shores and

uplifting indie-rock tropes, Astro Coast earned the band a national following (and New Times'

Best Album of 2010) and significant cachet as a touring act. Still, the

guys haven't lost sight of where they came from, having recently

announced a benefit show to help repair the environmental damage caused

by the BP oil spill catastrophe.

Advance tickets are available here.

The Oil.Spill.Benefit, presented by

at Propaganda, also showcases three local acts who can match altruism

with artistry just as effectively: synth-rock act the Jameses (singer Dan McHugh

sometimes wears a manatee T-shirt), the psych-rock splendor of the

Dewars, and Chill


garage rock blasts. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Florida

Wildlife Federation.

Oil.Spill.Benefit, with Surfer Blood, the

Jameses, the Dewars, and

Chill Pillars. 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 30, at Propaganda, 6 S. J St.,

Lake Worth. Call 561-547-7273, or click here.
