Calendar Pick: Athens Surf Stomp 2022

Genki Genki Panic

Now in its seventh year, the Athens Surf Stomp brings a diverse range of acts under the banner of surf rock, a genre so diverse that it serves more as a cultural touchstone than a strict definition of sound. This year’s acts revel in taking surf rock as far as it will go, with bands like Genki Genki Panic bringing their slimy brand of horror surf to the stage, or Outersea psyching out the masses. The Mystery Men? blend traditional surf with the cinematic, with a five-piece band consisting of 60% guitars. El Capitan & The Reluctant Sadists will also make an appearance, as well as The Spectre of Surf, Kinky Waikiki, The KBK and Trycoh. DJs Nate Mitchell and Kurt Wood spin vinyl in between acts to ensure you keep riding the wave!
