SunFest 2014: Surfer Blood, Dick Dale, Cake, Kid Rock - West Palm Beach - Day 1

Wednesday was the first night of SunFest, a five-day, beer soaked music festival at the West Palm Beach downtown waterfront. Fans of old school white-folk rock and roll reveled in the day one lineup, which consisted of five acts: the Vagabonds, Surfer Blood, Dick Dale, Kid Rock, and Cake.

It was around 6:45 when we arrived, and most of the patrons were just trickling in. West Palm Beach's Surfer Blood was onstage with some surfy power-pop. The audience was mostly sitting on the lawn waiting for Dick Dale to start at 7, at which point many of them left.
