  • 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...
