Schedule

Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30pm
Stage at KDHX

“Boom” tells the untold story of one of rock ’n’ roll’s wildest and most influential bands, the Sonics. For the first time ever, all five original members of the band tell the true story of how it all went down, beginning to end. “Boom” takes a deep dive, exploring how a relatively unknown band from the Pacific Northwest became a worldwide phenomenon 50 years after its heyday and shaped music for decades to come (whether it was apparent at the time or not). Featuring interviews with homegrown heroes and breakthrough artists alike, including Pearl Jam, the Sex Pistols, Heart, and Mudhoney.
