After an eight-month hiatus, The Resonars return to the stage, stoked. The Weekly caught up with tunesmith and knob-twirler Matt Rendon over fish tacos.

The Resonars performed last in Tucson at The Night of the Living Fest back in October where the band rocked a set of trademark ’60s-influenced psych and beautifully calibrated pop, to a raucous crowd.

The Resonars are playing “Che’s and Bar Passé to get gas money,” along with comrades Flight Thirteen (yes, named after the old Dearly Beloved song), before embarking on a whirlwind tour with gigs in L.A., San Pedro and Oakland, California. They’ll be performing tunes from their ear-bending Burger Records releases Crummy Desert Sound and That Evil Drone. This time out The Resonars lineup includes mainstay drummer Johnnie Rinehart and two pistols from Flight Thirteen: Guitarist Andy Puig and bassist Nate Gutierrez. Rendon says of the shows enthusiastically between bites, “It’s going to be super cool. A stripped down, more punk rock Resonars.”

Catch The Return of The Resonars with Flight Thirteen this Saturday June 24 at Che’s Lounge, 350 N. 4th Avenue, 10 p.m. 21+. Free. And Monday June 26 at Bar Passé, 417 N. 4th Avenue, 10 p.m. 21+. Free.
