Kevin Pariso came home to Chicago on Wednesday to open for The Jezabels with his band, the Brooklyn-based Surf Rock Is Dead. The surfgaze tandem played a noisy set full of fuzzed-out guitars from Pariso and thumping bass lines from Melbourne native Joel Witenberg. They traded off vocals, though the sound mix at Double Door drowned both a bit.
Check out the band’s EP from last year, SRiD. They played some new stuff, so be on the lookout for a new release coming probably early next year.
