WHAT: BOOM: A Film About the Sonics is the award-winning documentary debut of filmmaker Jordan Albertsen. It makes its Southern California premiere at the 20th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival.

For the first time ever, all five original members of the band tell the story of how it all went down, from beginning to end.

Featuring interviews with homegrown heroes and breakthrough artists alike, Pearl Jam, The Sex Pistols, Heart, Mudhoney, and many, many more.
