  • 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...

  • I somehow thought a lot more was going on this week than is actually going on, but there’s plenty going on even with that in mind. The weekend will be filled with difficult decisions, you may be allowed to rest on Sunday, but then killer shows kick right up next Monday and Tuesday. I included those as well, because my life will be consumed by end of the year lists at that point and I may not get to post a preview for those shows because I’ll either be writing or at those shows or something occurred out of normal...

  • I took a few weeks to work on other projects that I didn’t work on, wanted some time to not think about music and found myself thinking about music, tried to cut down on going to shows and ended up going to a lot of shows, so that was all quite silly in retrospect. I’ve tried to collect the best of the best for this week and while there is nothing going on Thursday for some odd reason, every other night this week is packed with amazing live and local music. Check it out below… When & Where: Tuesday, November...

  • This was the week I wasn’t going to write about music and being sick on Monday, made me think that dream would happen. Then I fell into the Stevie Nicks show, then I thought of an article, then I found a bunch of cool songs to write about…anyway, I ran out of time to do this proper. That said here is the full flyer array of shows I highly recommend and had to give at least a shout out to if I can’t deliver the full treatment. I learned this by watching YabYum! Here are my picks for this wonderful...

  • This is a banging week and to a lot of folks in Tempe this week is all about Apache Lake Music Festival, which is a big part of it, but if you’re not going there, there is a lot to do while spending this glorious weekend at home. One of my favorite records of the year will be released this Friday at Shady Park for instance. Also, shows from some of the best up and coming bands in the scene including the likes of El West, The Sink Or Swim, TOSO, and so many more are happening all over the...

  • A fully loaded deck of awesomeness is what’s going on. Seriously, this is a fantastic week filled with music every night and plenty of releases happening around the valley. The weekend is, of course, ridiculous, even Sunday, yes  even Sunday has some truly fantastic options. Every night this week has a live music experience waiting for your ears. Check it all out below and stay tuned, more will be added as I find them or if they post flyers for the show. When & Where: Tuesday, October 11th, Reasons To Attend: Note to self, check out Black Sun as soon...

  • This week seems suspiciously light, so it will probably be one of those where you should check back as more shows get added or have flyers and more information. On the other hand the weather is so nice you could just go for a walk and enjoy the outdoors without going to a bar or a show. I’m kidding of course, even on a light week there are over a dozen shows of note to attend throughout the week. When & Where: Tuesday, October 4th, 9pm at The Lost Leaf Reasons To Attend: This night may well be Slow Moses...

  • Sorry this is a little late in the week, finishing up moving around town this week. There were some great shows earlier this week, but don’t be sad if you missed them because this weekend (and I’m including Thursday in the weekend) is through the roof fantastic. There are super tough decisions to be made ever night left in this week, so good luck with that. So here we go with a hell of a weekend to be had by all!

  • This is another killer week with stacked lineups every night, but oddly, this may be the only week in ages where no one is dropping a new record. There is no lack of blockbuster shows though. I am certain a ton more will be announced as we get into the week and I’ll add them if I can. In the meantime check out the roster below and of note, there’s a lot of shows to get weird at…I mean the lineups alone are just asking for it.

  • This is a weird and wonderful week filled with an amazing array of shows. Nearly two dozen to be exact and more than that I’m assuming, as the week goes on and last minute gigs are announced. I may or may not update as needed, because I may try to hit at four or five of these like I did last week. Why the hell not? The weather is beautiful and the music is fantastic! Check out all that’s going on around your backyard this week below. When & Where: Tuesday, August, 13th, 7pm at 51 West Reasons To Attend:...

  • While this may appear to be a thin week, it’s power packed every single night and there are literally great shows every night of the week. To the point where I want to get all of my writing done for the week right now so I can hit a show every night. There are also two amazing record release shows this week and having listened to nearly everything that’s being released during both of them, I can say both shows are truly worth your attendance. Stay tuned throughout the week for further show announcements. Check it all out below. When...

  • As always, August ends with a bang, rather than a whimper. This is an absolute killer week in local music and though the Summer stayed pretty busy, the coming months will have dozens of fantastic shows a week instead of only a dozen. It’s a subtle reminder of just how good we have it here when it comes to our ridiculously vibrant music scene. This will also be the week where I start attending more shows than ever before out of sheer necessity. This is EP and album release season and these lineups are freaking stacked with the best and...
