Surfer Rosa is a North Bay Area live music series hosted every month and featuring Sonoma County musical artists. Produced by Alien Feedings, Surfer Rosa features about 8 artists, each performing a half-hour set.
Surfer Rosa started in 2018 and was held at Whiskey Tip in Santa Rosa.
In 2019, the series was moved to Shady Oak Barrel House in Downtown Santa Rosa.
The name, inspired by the Pixies' record of the same name (which we understand was inspired by Santa Rosa), is a nod to our 90s alternative rock roots and to present the series as a great way to "surf" the great music coming from our area.
As of early 2020, the series is on hold due to COVID-19.
Guide to Fast Living Music Series
Further leveraging the Guide to Fast Living name (also used by the musical act The Guide to Fast Living) In 2019, Alien Feedings produced a series of videos called Guide to Fast Living which featured interviews with 4 of the Surfer Rosa artists.
