Upcoming Live Shows Archive

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • This week has some amazing shows all over the place. With all the really great shows there are other really great shows at the same time, in a different venue. In fact Thursday, Friday and Saturday night are stacked with damned difficult decisions to be made. It appears there may be a rest day with Sunday this week, but that’s difficult to say this early on. Either way, after the preceding week, you’ll probably need it. When & Where: Tuesday, April 25th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons To Attend: This is the last Treasurefruit gig for a while while...

  • This week is another stunning showcase at every venue in town, every night of the week and this list doesn’t even included FestivALT AZ which features KONGOS and former Phoenixian, Nate Ruess. That major festival aside, there is more to choose from here than you can possibly be comfortable with on any given day. Check out the roster below and plan your week accordingly… When & Where: Tuesday, April 19th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons to Attend: This week Treasurefruit continues their Tuesday Night residency at The Rogue Bar.

  • There may not be as many shows this week as there was last week, but that might be because a shit ton of people are attending a festival at some polo field in Indio. That doesn’t mean that it’s still not off the hook. Plus, Saturday is Record Store Day, so if you aren’t blowing your money on Coachella you can do it right in your own backyard with records and maybe catch some live music while you are at it. When & Where: Wednesday, April 13th, 9pm at The Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: Because Marc Norman. Other...

  • This is a blockbuster week for live, local music. There are a ton of records being released this week and one of them I’ve been waiting for for a year, another I’ve been waiting for over four years. There is something to do every single night this week and a myriad of choices to meet your aural pleasures. Essentially, it will be another weekend where you wish that teleportation was a thing. Check out over twenty shows the valley has to offer your ears this week… When & Where: Tuesday, April 5th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons To Attend:...

  • Ever have a week sneak up on you and you think that maybe this one will be your chance to stay in and take it easy and then you look at the upcoming shows and you’re like “Holy fuck, what was I thinking?” Yeah, that’s this week. The shows have been raging all week long, but I’ve tried to catch nearly everything I could from Wednesday to Saturday night…thankfully, you get to rest on Sunday (maybe). You could catch a showing of Dig! at Crescent Ballroom on Sunday to take that thought right out of our head. You could also...
