The Sonics at Double Door on 02.27.2014
Back in February, Pacific Northwest garage rock legends The Sonics embarked on a very limited Midwest run. They came through Chicago on that run for a performance at the Double Door with The Cynics, and a belated set of pictures from that night are in this post. Were you there? If so, how was it?
Much like many other acts, The Sonics have a Record Store Day release coming out next month. It's a split 7" with Mudhoney that features a brand new tune called "Bad Betty. The single arrives via Muddy Roots and serves as a teaser to an upcoming full-length they tracked with producer Jim Diamond in the fall of 2013. There isn't much information on that record, but the band have shared a mix of clips from the LP, which you can check out at the bottom of this post. "Bad Betty" makes an appearance at 01:30.
More Sonics pictures, that mix of clips from their new LP, and a recent interview with Nardwuar lie after the jump...
