The Sonics at The Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, NJ – April 9, 2015

If you saw the fantastic HBO docuseries Sonic Highways, you already know about The Sonics. If not, let’s fill you in. Last year, Dave Grohl featured the Seattle-based garage rock icons on the Foo Fighters’ HBO series and the world re-fell in love with the band. So, the guys got together for their first national tour in forever and hit rolled into The Wonder Bar. In tow was Barrence Whitfield & The Savages along with local support from The Battery Electric and TV Tramps.

Pop-Break’s Jeff Crespi caught the band in action.
