Surfer Blood, The Lighthouse & The Whaler, Wool

When: Sat., Nov. 28, 9 p.m. 2015

Florida’s Surfer Blood broke out five years back by performing surf rock with the enthusiastic concision of indie pop. Singer John Paul Pitts’ preppy, peppy demeanor bobbed on top. The band’s had a particularly rough year. Guitarist Thomas Fekete was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Thieves broke into their van, swiping both gear and cash that had been raised for treatment. The indie rock community rallied support, with luminaries like Guided by Voices, Yo La Tengo and Yoko Ono contributing unreleased tracks or signed memorabilia for an auction. In music news, the band released 1000 Palms, a sweet, samey return and their first without a major label. —Jeff Klingman
