Tsunami Bomb + the Phenomenauts invade the Phoenix Theater

Some might be tempted to call the show on Friday at the Phoenix Theater a ....blast from the past... Get it? Because the recently-reunited Tsunami Bomb is headlining, with support from Phoenix theater royalty the Phenomenauts, whose genre has been dubbed "rocket roll." Tsunami Bomb? ... Rocket roll?....Blast??? Annnnnd I'll show myself out. For real though, both these bands have deep roots in the North Bay Area music scene and could be considered Phoenix Theater royalty at this point. It's rad to see them team up to support the survivors of the North Bay fires. Seeing those names back on [...]
