Detroit alt-rockers Sponge may have enjoyed their best days in the ’90s thanks to the Rotting Piñata album, but frontman Vinnie Dombroski has kept them breathing, releasing quality material, since then. They’ve seen a resurgence of late thanks to a heap of praise from Howard Stern, and Dombroski told us last May that they’ve been working on new material. They still love coming to L.A. too. “The folks at the Whisky treat us so good.,” Dombroski said. “They take great care of us and the production rocks. Every time we walk into the building I still think about Morrison standing on that stage or Van Halen, Mötley Crüe. That never gets old.”
Sponge plays with Venrez and Fatal Dissent at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4 at the Whisky A Go Go.
