The Bands Of Gonerfest Eleven. Meet , Warm Soda



Next up in our series of “The Bands of Gonerfest Eleven” we bring you, Warm Soda. This is a band that I have listened to before we began this series. They were on a compilation last year I Need You Bad Curated by one of its most vital members, Sonny Smith.That is the reason I started listening to them and then I discovered even more fun on their own albums. Love the pop sensibilities tossed in with the garage rock nugget sounds. I file Warm Soda in my category…”The Kids Are Alright” and if your wondering where that name came from , we are both in trouble. For those of you who have not yet visited Goner Records , I can only say, Goner sets the bar for the music we all love . Gonerfest Eleven is going to kick ass and if there is any way you can go…go. So kids…Meet and listen to yet another top notch band playing Friday September 26 at Gonerfest Eleven. I want to thank Warm Soda for being cool enough to answer these questions….
