Sonny & the Sunsets
San Francisco's favorite troubadour, Sonny Smith, had quite the 2010 with his band, the Sunsets. Spreading their gospel to the country on an endless national tour, the band's first LP Tomorrow Will Be Alright earned heaps of critical praise from all corners of the music scene and got the Sunsets signed to venerable indie label Fat Possum (which also houses current faves the Smith Westerns and Yuck).
You're going to need somewhere to go to celebrate the new decade, right? Our picks for the best ways to throw down.
Don't get me wrong--I like Best Coast a heck of a lot. I'm just way more excited to see San Francisco band Sonny & the Sunsets open for them at their Great American Music Hall show tomorrow night, the 26th. With their latest and most excellent disc Tomorrow Is Alright (Fat Possum) hot off the presses this summer, Sonny & the Sunsets--who have been rigorously touring for a few months now--has become one of our best musical exports.
