  • You know it’s a good week when you are selecting from over two dozen shows, versus just over a dozen a few weeks ago. I am certain I will get to add more shows as the week progresses and they are announced or the ones without flyers post flyers. Either way this is a stunning showcase of local talent at nearly every available venue in town. With no less than three record release shows, it’s also a chance to get your fresh tunes flowing to escort you out of Summer. Even this Sunday has four show to choose from, seriously,...

  • What’s not going on is probably an easier to answer question this week and pretty much every week through the end of the year. This is another week filled with great shows from end to end, I’m sure more will appear here throughout the week to add to the difficult decisions (Friday, for instance). Also, I may add some more events if they throw up a digital flyer for the shows that I may have skipped. When & Where: Tuesday, August 9th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons To Attend: It’s New Wave/ 80s/ Goth Night for this installment of...

  • BAM! It’s August again and though there really wasn’t a lull in shows this Summer, any pretense of such a lull is over and now albums, singles and EPs are going to be released left and right. Right from the get go this week seems filled with revitalized energy toward pushing all the great music for the rest of the year out starting now. It’s exciting for me, because in some cases I’ve had these records for months and in others, I get to enjoy the surprise right along with you. Either way, it’s fine with me, there are three...

  • As we come to the end of July it feels like the last semi-quiet week before the deluge of record releases and CD release parties started going full throttle. Who am I kidding though, the quality of shows this Summer has been phenomenal and the quantity has been a record breaker right along with the temperatures. The following shows are the best of the best, and they are, to be certain the best of the shows that have flyers. Sorry, no digital flyer, no mention of the show. That said, I dropped four or five shows from this weeks lineup...

  • It’s actually a pretty light week this week and I even went beyond my social media invites to search for extra shows, found a couple that way. I also eliminated any event that didn’t have a flyer. Which leaves us with the ten shows below. That said, five of the ten shows below are all on Saturday, so there’s that. I may hit some of the shows mid week, but I’m taking off for Northern climbs this weekend, mainly so I don’t have to make such damn difficult decisions here. Just kidding, I’d be going to the Soul Asylum show...

  • Well, hot diggety damn there are a lot of great shows this week and a lot of unusual shows at that. I’ve got three house parties listed below, for instance. This is also a peculiar week because you have three chances to catch Field Tripp and two chances to catch Wyves. Friday is the usual clusterfuck of trying to decide which magnificent show to choose from and this rolls right into next week, because there is an awesome house show on Monday. Also, if I see you playing Pokemon while some band I love is playing, I’ll probably destroy your...

  • I like the way that not even the heat of July can keep local bands from putting on some of the best shows of the year. This week has a sweet lineup and every night of the week has something to offer. There are many moments of greatness to be found and I’m sure since I’m posting this so early in the week there will be a lot more that I can add through the week. Stay tuned and if I hear of more shows that have flyers, I’ll post them here. In the meantime, check out the great live...

  • I was going to skip doing this entirely this week, but there are a lot of great shows. I’ve been super busy with paid writing gigs all over the place and so I’ve decided to take the Yab Yum approach and simply post the flyers for the shows in town this week. I had originally picked out about twenty shows, but for some reason people can’t be bothered to make flyers. So too bad. I don’t give a fuck if you use Microsoft Paint or Crayon to do it, you should make a digital flyer. Here are the nine remaining...

  • 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. That said, the shows that are taking place are pretty killer. I have so many writing assignments this week from so many directions I don’t even know if I’ll...

  • Alright, you desert loving lizards, just because it’s starting to get a little warm, doesn’t mean you have to stop keeping cool with some live, local music this week. There’s good music everywhere for miles, looking through my favorite acts and venues, these are my picks for some great shows to get you out of your air conditioned dwelling and into living life and digging some sweet sounds. This week I even help you around the bend and into Monday! When & Where: Wednesday, June 8th, 7pm at Pho Cao Reasons To Attend: DaDadoh is taking over Pho Cao every...

  • 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...
