SummerSonic returns in September

Still technically summer!

Dave Gillespie

Remember when the Black Keys came to town about five minutes before they blew up? You do if you were at SummerSonic on the Garrison Grounds in 2008. If you're me you also remember the members of Stars flinging flowers into the crowd in the pouring rain, or two cops crossing the grounds and stopping in awe during a Loel Campbell drum solo in Wintersleep's set, or Citadel-wide singalong to The Weakerthans' "Left and Leaving."
