Preview: The Wonder Years arrive at Soma tonight

The Wonder Years is a wildly popular television show that ran from the late 80’s to early 90’s that focused on a family in the late 60’s and early 70’s. The Wonder Years is also the name of a pop punk band whose newest album and tour is named The Greatest Generation. A lesser band would have produced an adequate album that eventually would have been lost underneath a sea of links to the TV show or Tom Brokaw in any Google search. However, after only a minute into the rousing opening track “There, There”, The Wonder Years cements themselves as an important force in the revival of a genre. After a successful jaunt overseas, The Wonder Years are now in the middle of a Spring tour of the US, stopping in San Diego tonight at Soma with their friends Defeater, Citizen, Real Friends, and Modern Baseball. A limited number of tickets are available online here for $16 and doors for the all ages show are at 6:00p. Be sure to check out the music video for “There, There” after the jump.
