Double Your Pleasure with Two Nada Surf ShowsApril 3rd, 2012
Matthew Caws (vocals and guitar) and Daniel Lorca (bass) first met at a French private school in New York City. Together they formed Nada Surf in the early ’90s, and the band went through two other drummers before settling in with Ira Elliott in 1995. The trio’s first LP, High/Low, came out in 1996 and the single “Popular” quickly became a big hit. Despite the weight of having a summer anthem and the group’s label wanting them to duplicate it, Nada Surf (above, playing “Hi-Speed Soul” at The Bowery Ballroom) kept at it, touring and making new music. The newest music is their seventh LP, The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy, which came out in January. Experience some of it live (Saturday at Webster Hall is sold out) on Sunday at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
