Surf Curse
Surf Curse is Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck, who started their project in a basement in Reno, Nevada before going to Los Angeles to become a fixture of the DIY scene anchored by internationally-renowned venue The Smell, eventually linking up with likeminded groups like Girlpool, The Garden, and Slow Hollows. Their music is anchored with a blend of punk and pop elements heavily influenced by the pulp of 80’s, cult and arthouse cinema. Coming a few years after the boys broke out with 2013’s Buds LP and Sad Boys EP, their new album Nothing Yet marks not a return-to-form but a significant step forward from a group that has grown older, more mature, and more effective as songwriters.

Nowadays, SEACATS are best known as a D-list Seattle indie-rock band, fronted by the duo of brothers Mike and Josh Davis; however the band's roots go back much farther than that. All the way back to 2008, when Mike and Josh created an internet comedy show in their small hometown of Kelso, WA. Slowly, what was primarily comedy-focused transformed into something more well-rounded artistically. Close friend Jordan Cole joined and the group took on the form of a rock band when they started doing live shows in 2009. The band has become more of a collective in recent years, exploring a wide variety of mediums including: performance art, video, narrative theater, live improv, as well as releasing 3 full-length records.
Somewhere along the way, the group caught the eye (or should I say funnybone?) of burgeoning Seattle indie label Fin Records, where they inked an album deal. Since then, it has been “Jokes Galore” with the band even receiving Seattle Weekly’s highly sought-after “Best Cat Band” award, solidifying the band’s position as “A cute joke band, with no real substance.” Recently, the band has made even more jokes, including their “really funny” Mexican-wrestling themed music video for “Wrecked,” followed by their highbrow satire of masculinity, the music video for “Firewood.” “Firewood” was released as a 7” single entitled The 7” Burger on 4/20 (The jokes never stop with these guys!). Since Metal Music the fan anticipation had been building for another SEACATS full-length. Well, get ready to giggle! Because finally the guys have put together the perfect “laughing gas formula” that is guaranteed to make you howl, grin, and chortle until your gut busts!

And if you thought they were funny on record, wait ‘til you see em live! Known to be “The funniest live band EVER” the guys have loaded their live show to the brim with funny gags. The guys have done all types of gags imaginable in their live shows: Crowd work, high-flying stunts, food fights, audience misdirection, berating of the audience, taking articles of clothing off, IRONIC/FUNNY COVERS, (can you say Black Eyed Peas, System of a Down, Smash Mouth, My Chemical Romance, Christina Aguilera, Kid Rock, and of course fan-favorite Bohemian Rhapsody!) and EVEN jumping into the pacific ocean (How’d they pull that one off?! HAHAHA). I mean look at these guys! They’ll do anything for a laugh! You know what they always say, “you never know what’ll happen at a SEACATS live show.”

So there you have it, the gangs all here, and I’m so happy we’re all here together. So snuggle up, settle down, take a load off, and take a listen to SEACATS; and then get ready to hop onboard the laugh train baby, because here it comes! CHOO-CHOO!
