  • This is the time of year that everyone in Arizona loves Arizona and the streets are filled with snowbirds to prove it. It’s festival season as we swing into holiday season and every thing gets weird and wimbly wombly until suddenly it’s next year. There are a lot of cool shows this week and if you’re festival minded, you have a choice of Bisbee or Mesa. Enough of my yakking, here’s the low down on the hoedown! When & Where: Wednesday, November 8th, 7:30pm at The Lunchbox Reasons To Attend: Check the details below. I honestly only know Goldengoat here,...

  • This is a freaking amazing week with stellar lineups every night. I’ll be adding more shows for the weekend, but even without more events, this is solid. I’d suggest spending a lot of your Saturday at The Trunk Space if you want the best in bands that are running under the radar and make your indie rock dreams come true. The choices are difficult every night, but maybe you can determine the best place to find the music you love this weekend.

  • Well this appears to be the week that all the Halloween shows are happening and on top of that Apache Lake Music Festival! Whether you are staying in town or taking the trip to East by God, it’s going to be a great time if you’re craving live, local music.

  • It looks like Summer may actually end sometime this week and the weekend is looking like sweater and boots weather for those whose blood has been thinned across a couple years. It’s also going to be a completely crazy week with the Lost Lake Festival happening and I’ll spotlight the local acts making the various stages below. The gigantic festival aside, there are some amazing shows this week all over the place, so let’s get down to it… When & Where: Tuesday, October 17, 8pm at Valley Bar Reasons to Attend: Flower Festival are amazing locals and N.

  • It’s an oddly low key week, and at the same time there’s no less than three record releases this weekend, four if I can dig up the flyer for it. Either way, here’s a dozen noteworthy shows that I can vouch for, I’ll be doing more research as the week goes on so look for updates on the weekend. Here’s what we’ve got going on.. When & Where: Wednesday, October 11th, 7:30pm at The Lunchbox Reasons To Attend: I have to admit The Lunchbox and The Trunk Space are becoming the indie hubs of Phoenix, in addition to some stranger...

  • There is honestly not a lot going on in the world of live local music this weekend…I mean it’s still going to be killer and the lineups are amazing, the amount of options are less overwhelming. I wasn’t sure I was going to do one of these this week since the pickings seemed even more slim at the start. So let’s check out these nine fantastic shows… When & Where: Friday, October 6, 8pm at The Van Buren Reasons To Attend: Japandroids are amazing, but you know who’s more amazing? Their opening act Playboy Manbaby. ‘Nuff said. Other Details: Tickets: http://www.ticketweb.com/fb/7645055/vanburen JAPANDROIDS...

  • Now that Summer is dead I realized the entire time I had the “Summertime Blues,” which probably would have cheered me up if I had thought of that rock’n'roll connotation, but the lyrics do specify that there is simply no cure. Either way, Anthony Fama correctly predicted and enforced the Worst Summer Ever ethic and we all went along with it, really, really well. But Fuck it, it’s Fall now and that’s like our Spring here in the land of reverse seasonal hibernation. Got a killer week once more and this goes straight through to Monday, because I want to...

  • The weather is here and the time is right for going out at night and getting regular doses of live, local music. We have reverse seasons of behavior here in Arizona and the end of September is akin to the start of Spring everywhere else in the world. After months of being locked in air conditioned pods we are now ready to breathe the air, walk in the daytime and get back to the nightlife. Let’s Rock. When & Where: Tuesday, September 19th, 9pm at Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: There may be other bands on this bill, there...

  • It’s almost like Arizona is a safe place to be this week, and we’ve got some banging music to celebrate that. Sure Summer is still here and will be for a month or two, but now is the time when we all get our shit together and get it done…Or something like that…Any way, here’s the low down on the hoedown… When & Where: Thursday, September 7th, 8pm at The Rebel Lounge Reasons to Attend: This is going to get weird and stay weird. DJs, Beats, Chillwave, some noise I’m sure. Unusual times call for unusual events, this is one...

  • Well, the honest answer to what’s going on, is not too terribly much when it comes to local music–and I’m saying this after scrubbing through every venues calendar. Granted, a couple events didn’t have flyers, but still–not a whole lot’s going down. This is par for the course as he try to convince ourselves that Summer ends with August, to fuel our eternal September disappointment. Anywhere here’s where to find those damn jams you crave… When & Where: Wednesday, August 16th, 7:30pm at The Trunk Space Reasons To Attend: It’s AJJ performing an album from their days a decade ago...
