  • I know a lot of people are spending their time hiding in their air conditioned cubicles and veal fattening pens, but if your feeling caged up keep in mind that there is great local music to be had every night of the week. I can also tell that there are plenty of musicians who are holing up in the holy AC as well, since there aren’t that many shows this week.

  • While the temperatures finally start rising in Phoenix, my best advice is to keep yourself cool at any number of our lovely music venues and indulge in some fantastic live music. Though the Summer is heating up, the music scene is going right with it and not cooling things down a bit. This is a a good thing. There are a ton of shows this week and a few I missed from getting this out a day later than I like, but we’ve got some amazing album releases, some fundraisers and just a hell of a lot of fun to...

  • …And we’re back. I took a couple weeks off to not think about local music, but I can only stay away for so long. Plus, I have a ton of projects that are actually with a bunch of local musicians in the works, so really, I just wasn’t writing about it. That said there is amazing music every night this week, Monday to Sunday and probably even more shows to be announced. It’s another one of those weeks where everyone has decided to have a show on Friday night, so that’s going to be rough, but rewarding. Here is what...

  • This week has some amazing shows all over the place. With all the really great shows there are other really great shows at the same time, in a different venue. In fact Thursday, Friday and Saturday night are stacked with damned difficult decisions to be made. It appears there may be a rest day with Sunday this week, but that’s difficult to say this early on. Either way, after the preceding week, you’ll probably need it.

  • This week is another stunning showcase at every venue in town, every night of the week and this list doesn’t even included FestivALT AZ which features KONGOS and former Phoenixian, Nate Ruess. That major festival aside, there is more to choose from here than you can possibly be comfortable with on any given day. Check out the roster below and plan your week accordingly… When & Where: Tuesday, April 19th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons to Attend: This week Treasurefruit continues their Tuesday Night residency at The Rogue Bar.

  • There may not be as many shows this week as there was last week, but that might be because a shit ton of people are attending a festival at some polo field in Indio. That doesn’t mean that it’s still not off the hook. Plus, Saturday is Record Store Day, so if you aren’t blowing your money on Coachella you can do it right in your own backyard with records and maybe catch some live music while you are at it.

  • This is a blockbuster week for live, local music. There are a ton of records being released this week and one of them I’ve been waiting for for a year, another I’ve been waiting for over four years. There is something to do every single night this week and a myriad of choices to meet your aural pleasures. Essentially, it will be another weekend where you wish that teleportation was a thing. Check out over twenty shows the valley has to offer your ears this week… When & Where: Tuesday, April 5th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons To Attend:...

  • Ever have a week sneak up on you and you think that maybe this one will be your chance to stay in and take it easy and then you look at the upcoming shows and you’re like “Holy fuck, what was I thinking?” Yeah, that’s this week. The shows have been raging all week long, but I’ve tried to catch nearly everything I could from Wednesday to Saturday night…thankfully, you get to rest on Sunday (maybe). You could catch a showing of Dig! at Crescent Ballroom on Sunday to take that thought right out of our head. You could also...

  • There are only a few days left to make all your dreams come true! Well, maybe not your dreams, but my dream and a lot of other peoples’ dreams that want to hear a new full length Field Tripp album that is actually recorded in the studio! I honestly consider Dan Tripp to be one of the finest songwriters that I know and I know a lot of songwriters. The man has literally more albums on his hard drive at home that he’s recorded than most artists release in a lifetime. But that won’t do this time. No, we need...

  • Spring has sprung and there are shows pretty much every night of the week this week. Thursday and Friday are the craziest nights on this list and a lot of tough decisions will need to be made. Either way, it appears there actually aren’t any festivals this weekend so it’s back to the venues for your live local music needs. Also, there are a fair amount of unusual venues found here and some I’ve never even heard of.

  • One festival weekend down and so many more to go. This week has a festival of sorts, but it’s broken up into two days with a Friday in between them, and I guess it’s all in the spirit of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on the actual day, so there you go. Still, festivals aside, this week is stacked with great shows to see, a few record releases, a tribute to a recently lost rising star and an unexpected reunion. Check it all out below… When & Where: Thursday, March 17th, 8pm at Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: Well this...
