California surf poppers Sonny & the Sunsets bring their wryly hilarious, daring, and tuneful summer bonfire rock to Mohawk Place this evening with fellow Californian Sarah Bethe Nelson.

Fronted by songwriting mastermind Sonny Smith, Sonny & the Sunsets have been putting their cockeyed spin on surf/garage rock since the early 2000’s, and are in town to promote their 2015 release Talent Night at the Ashram, while San Francisco’s Sarah Bethe Nelson features a 60’s pop meets garage rock sound and a fine Instagram account.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets are $12.
