Sonnymoon Makes Surprise Return To San Jose At Summer Fest

In Clubs, Music

Boston electro duo Sonnymoon generated a lot of buzz when they played San Jose in June, and left a lot of people who missed their show at the Pagoda chomping at the bit to see them. That explains why tickets are already being snapped up for the group’s return on Friday, Aug. 10.

The announcement of Sonnymoon’s show comes as a surprise for a couple of reasons. First, the East Coast band seemed to getting to the South Bay about once a year, with more excitement around their arrival each time. But Anna Wise, one half of the founding duo along with Dane Orr, is from NorCal, and the group has been spending more time in California. Secondly, the show, which brings them back to the Pagoda, is actually part of San Jose Jazz’s Summer Fest this weekend, and is being billed as “Jazz Beyond.” The show is free with festival admission, but even the separate, non-festival tickets are going fast.

After the Sonnymoon show (which begins at 8:30pm), the Pagoda will host a second Summer Fest-related event, “After Hours at the Pagoda.” Julius Papp and The Selector DJ Kirk will perform from 10pm-1:30pm. Tickets are also free with Summer Fest admission, $10 without. On Saturday, the Pagoda will host another “After Hours” show, this time featuring top San Francisco DJ J Boogie.
