Very nearly a schoolteacher, J.P. Pitts
In this week's SF Weekly music section, the focus of their concert preview is that Surfer Blood frontman J.P. Pitts "was just a semester shy of a degree in secondary education from Florida Atlantic University when he decided to drop out last August and pursue a different career." We have no problem with that, but with tuition prices always on the rise, the question missing here is why didn't Pitts leave school sooner? Their album has sold 18,000 copies, after all.

Much of the feature focuses on how Pitts and his bandmates are getting a different primer, Hype 101, out on the road.
"It's a little nerve-wracking, since everyone is waiting around like a pack of wolves to trash our next record. We've come up pretty fast, so there's a lot of backlash already."
Not everyone, dude. But it will sure shut a lot of people up if the next album's not a rush job.

Two local Surfer Blood gigs featuring the Turbo Fruits are on the horizon: April 20 at Respectable Street in West Palm Beach and April 22 at the Ten in One Music Festival at Bal Harbour Resort & Spa in Miami.
