Sonny (Smith) & The Sunsets opened for Thao and The Get Down Stay Down at the Neptune in Seattle last week. It was a stormy night outside the venue, and a stormy night inside. And a big treat for me. After the show I got to meet Sonny and get an LP signed. Check out “Longtime Companion” (Polyvinyl Records, 2012). Heartache and break-up songs with a country vibe.
