The Southern Surf Stomp this month went down in Decatur, Georgia and a fantastic time was had by all! The Stomp which began in April of this year is held every month at the Kavarna Coffeehouse. Three bands are invited to play and it has proven to be a great draw for the southern surf scene. This month, Ivan Pongracic of the Space Cossacks and Madeira fame headlined along with the AmpFibians (Cincinnati) and Jeffrey Butzer & the Bicycle Eaters. I really enjoyed the range of musical styles offered Saturday night. I began the night feeling as if I was in a Parisian cafe on to blues and psychedelic drenched surf and then on to melt-your-face-hard-charging surf to bring the house down at the end of the night. I want to end my thoughts by saying Ivan is the man, he is the great ambassador of surf – past and present.
