Surf Zombies play International Pop Overthrow in Chicago Saturday April 21


The Surf Zombies are playing the International Pop Overthrow at The Redline Tap in Chicago Sat. April 21 at midnight. Usually this fest is focused on power pop acts, but David Bash decided to ask The Surf Zombies after hearing their new cd "Lust for Rust". SZ guitarist Brook Hoover will also be sitting in with Chicago band Swinger for a few songs, re-uniting this group of friends who played together at IPO in Liverpool in 2004 at The Cavern Club. Chicago surf guitar fans should stop in an meet these guys. Ian Williams is the other guitarist of the group and he plays a USA Jazzmaster while Hoover plays a Japanese Jaguar with a recently installed Mastery Bridge. Drummer Tyler Russel and bassist Joel McDowell round out the band. "Playing with this line up has been thrilling. These guys know their stuff, are young and full of energy. Total music nerds, my kind of guys" remarks Hoover who started The Surf Zombies in 2004.
