Sonny & the Sunsets will be touring this summer, playing their first East Coast shows since releasing new album Talent Night At The Ashram, which came out in February. Their NYC stop will be at Baby's All Right on July 22 Tickets are on sale now. All tour dates are listed below.

As you may remember, Talent Night At The Ashram was originally intended as a series of short films based on Sonny's songs that would then tell a bigger story. That never quite happened, but one of the short films they did finish has been relesased, "Happy Carrot Health Food Store." Made by Jim Granato, it's a funny, literal take on the song as Sonny attempts to shop for vegetables, dietary supplements and sunglasses. The song and video take a psychedelic turn near the end, courtesy animator Teppei Ando. It's worth your seven minutes and you can watch it below...
