TACOMA (CelebrityAccess) — Tacoma-bred garage rock legends The Sonics have just announced a string of U.S. and European tour dates.
The band will kick things off with a homecoming show August 28 at Tacoma’s Alma Mater before heading over to Europe in October to perform in the Netherlands, Sweden, and Germany. They’ll wrap up the year with a handful of US dates across Texas and California.
The band’s current incarnation features original member Rob Lind (saxophone, harmonica, and vocals) and long-time Sonics drummer Dusty Watson joined by two recent additions, guitarist Evan Foster (of Tacoma’s own Boss Martians) and keyboardist Jake Cavaliere (a member of L.A. garage-psych upstarts the Lords of Altamont), as well as the return of one-time bassist Don Wilhelm.
