Punk and garage rock as we know it wouldn't exist without The Sonics, who are not only still around but last year released their first new album in nearly 50 years. They're touring again this year, with shows in Mexico, Canada, and the US.

They'll set sail aboard The Liberty Belle for a Rocks Off Cruise on August 26, leaving from NYC's Pier 36 at 299 South Street. Making the show even more exciting is psychobilly vets Flat Duo Jets and Queens garage rock legends The Fleshtones. WFMU's Todd-o-phonic Todd is DJing. Tickets are on sale now.

The Fleshtones have other upcoming dates, including one of the Yankees pregame concerts on August 11.

Flat Duo Jets also have other dates, including NJ's Brighton Bar on June 29 (tickets) and NYC's Hill Country on June 30 with Daddy Long Legs (tickets). They've also got a bunch of dates with Reverend Horton Heat.

All dates for all three bands are listed, with some music, below.
