“Plowed” Hit-Makers Sponge Return to The Machine Shop on March 23



Modern rock hit-makers Sponge return to The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan on Friday March 23, 2012.  Doors are at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. General admission tickets are $15 in advance and are available now at the venue’s box office and online at etix.com. Ages 18 and over are welcome to attend. Detroit rockabilly legends the Koffin Kats open the show along with area upstarts Westfall and 151.

Hailing from Detroit, Sponge gained widespread notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata."  Hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" fueled massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV in the late 90's. After "Rotting Piñata" went Gold, the band toured internationally, and followed up with the critically lauded CD “Wax Ecstatic,” garnering additional hits "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?”

Sponge are now touring in support of their latest EP – featuring the single “Destroy the Boy,” currently available on Itunes and at shows. A mainstay on commercial rock radio, Sponge continues to stand out as one of rock’s most charismatic live acts, with lead singer Vinnie Dombroski's powerful voice, heart-on-his- sleeve lyrics and full throttle stage captivating audiences the world over.

Sponge are once again red hot - as evidenced by their scorching performance opening for rock legends Guns N' Roses in Detroit in late February, and a national appearance on Speed TV for NASCAR.

Sponge's Machine Shop show is part of the venue's stellar 10th Anniversary line up.  Sponge was one of the first bands to rock The Machine Shop when the venue first opened its doors. With it's tattoo and hot rod inspired decor, and top notch national line ups, The Machine Shop quickly evolved into one of Michigan's premiere concert venues.

The Machine Shop Concert Lounge is located at 3539 South Dort Highway in Flint, Michigan.   For more information please contact the venue at 810-715-2650 or visit the band's official web site: spongetheband.com
