I have it on very good authority (and not just via Pollstar) that my faves Nada Surf will be hitting the Gargoyle in October with a fantastic new group, Sea Wolf, in tow. I saw the latter band in Chicago a few months back, and its laid-back California vibe and jangly guitars are tempered with healthy doses of Wilco, R.E.M. and Tom Petty. Check out the video for "You're a Wolf" below; yes, those are members of fellow A to Z faves Silversun Pickups playing along.
As a bonus, here is a video for Nada Surf's "What is Your Secret"?
