The Sonic intern army is NOT as Sherwood Park Toyota Scion today. There are no weekends left to do one last SONiC BOOM weekend. People who don’t have tickets yet are starting to get desperate.

Every call though, no matter how ridiculous, she’s handled like a pro — helpful, polite. Even with ‘Nick’.
Patrick Carney from the Black Keys calls to talk about Turn Blue, the upcoming show, and his strange connection with the late Ike Turner. Plus, highlights from the past week’s afternoon shows on SONiC.
