The Sonics @ the Bell House
The Sonics

Tacoma, WA garage rock legends The Sonics were last in NYC to play Norton Records' 25th Anniversary in 2011, and they returned over the weekend for a Norton Records benefit to help the label's continuing recovery from Hurricane Sandy damages. The show took place on Saturday (4/13) at The Bell House with long-running New Jersey rock n' roll true believers, Rye Coalition. The Sonics ripped through a number of their classics like "Psycho," "Strychnine," "The Witch," their cover of "Louie Louie," and more.
