  • Wow what a week! And it’s not all slammed into Friday night this round, though that’s a typical mess of difficult choices. Three shows on Tuesday, a few on Wednesday, a ton on Thursday (some not represented below for lack of a flyer)–there’s a reason I’m getting this out early this week. Actually the reason is that I’m going non-local tomorrow to catch WIRE for the first time in twenty years and then Wednesday I’ll be glued to Rebel Lounge so really this is my only night to write. Either way, this week is amazing and right in line with...

  • It’s been a minute since we’ve had a genuine “Night of a Million Shows”,  at least I think it has and this coming Friday is that exact kind of clusterfest. Then Saturday’s got a couple all day festivals and a noise show, so that’s sensible. I know there’s no way of planning these things, but it feels a bit ridiculous with feast or famine scheduling. Sorry for the rant, the good news is there is no bad decision when you choose to spend your time and energy enjoying live local sounds and getting down with the musical community that surrounds...

  • Just to get the Elephant out of the room, The Pot of Gold festival is this weekend and you can read about that everywhere else. It will be a great way to welcome Summer’s early rearing. Seriously, I’m sure every publication has that thing sussed for you. Anyway, major festival aside, there are a lot of really cool shows this weekend and one of the best records of the year is being released at The Rebel Lounge on Thursday night. Seriously Sundressed’s new record is insanely good. That is but one of many peaks this week, here’s a sneak preview...

  • I totally meant to get one of these out last week, but I didn’t because real life happens and let’s face it, I do this for free, so there’s that. Either way, back for this weeks roster and we have Viva PHX! on the front this Saturday and that’s going to consume most of the downtown venues in its wake. There will be details and links on that below. Needless, to say it’s another banner year for this burgeoning annual festival. There are tons of great shows outside of that juggernaut and that’s what this is mostly about. Shows actually...

  • This is extremely late, but I’ve had a lot on my plate, but as they say, the show must go on. Plus, there’s so much cool shit on the next four nights that something must be said. Also, I’ve had a hell of a February where nothing went as planned and I wanted to get one more of these out this month. No less than three records coming out this weekend and all the release shows are on Saturday. From here to Monday there’s a hell of a lot of good music to be had. When & Where: Friday, February...

  • Getting this out a little late this week, which I suppose is better than not getting this out at all like the last two weeks. Regrets? Maybe a few, but hey, I do this for free so that you can give your money to the musicians that make your ears fire up. Anyway, check this out, because there’s a lot of cool stuff going down over the next four nights, some of it costs money, some of it is free, some of it you’ll hate and some you’ll love. Enjoy it while you have it, whatever get’s you going…a lot...

  • Well hot diggity damn this is a stunning week that marches directly into next week while gently stepping over Sunday. Never fear, I’m sure a Sunday show will pop up in the next few days, maybe Andy Warpigs will play. Either way, I’ve included next Monday here because I’m planning on catching those shows and this will be the only chance to put them on blast. That said, we’ve got at least three record release shows scattered about, mostly on Saturday and all with impressive lineups.  Also, imagine below that “Other Details” is “Reasons To Attend” and vica versa, I...

  • Let the cavalcade of release shows get into full swing! This is a hell of a week to start doing just that and there’s at least three of them and so many more in the weeks ahead. This is a great week all around with some amazing lineups and once more Saturday will be a bear to decide and Friday isn’t too easy either. Overall it’s a pretty fine balance. Check out the action below… When & Where: Tuesday, January 10th, 8pm at The Rebel Lounge Reasons To Attend: Note to self, check out Thurston. I remember catching them once...

  • Diving right into the new year with a stacked lineup of fantastic shows. I’ve had some previews of what’s in store for 2017 and at least the music will be completely amazing. There were a ton of late year record releases last week and only one to speak of so far this year. That will change quickly. Also, it’s one of those weeks where a whole bunch of great things are slammed into Friday night, while merely sprinkled about the rest of the weekend. It’s a new year and the same old you, but you could check out more local...

  • It’s an interesting week with Christmas falling right on Sunday, which makes everything weird and as cool as it is to have Christmas on a Sunday if your into that sort of thing, it kind of wrecks the flow of a Phoenix weekend. Plus, most people don’t get a workday off, so that sucks to. What doesn’t suck is the amount of great music happening all over the place every night of the week, except Saturday. Yes, there are shows on Christmas, but this may be the first time in a long time that nothing is going down on a...

  • This week is unreal, which is why I wanted to get it out as early as possible. The weekend is still a bitch decision wise, but not the trainwreck it was last Saturday. That said, with the strange exception of Wednesday…there are just good shows to see, there are fan-freaking-tastic shows to catch all of the other nights this week. I begin where I ended last week. Believe this many great shows is stressing me out too–I have to carefully schedule my writing regiment this week so I can go out and have some fun watching all the bands I’m...

  • As promised this is late this week, because of the shows I highlighted on Monday and Tuesday, last week. I wanted to still get this out earlier, but it’s  a pretty forgiving week in that there a nearly twenty fantastic shows and almost all of them are being held on Saturday. It happens at least one week a month and this is that magic week where you might actually stay home because it’s like picking which child is your favorite. Seriously, I wish there was a way to avoid this, but it’s been a tradition in the local music scene...
