Upcoming Live Shows Archive

  • Getting this out early this week, because I have a ridiculous amount of writing and amazing projects to work on over the next few days. As always, I will most assuredly add more shows as I know about them, but this runs straight into next Monday as it is, so there is no lack of live, local entertainment to be had. I drive most of this from facebook events, but sometimes it seems to mess about with what I’ve put down as going or interested. There may be a major show or two missing below, but they’ll be added. It’s...

  • What’s going on? Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick, Stuart, what’s not going on?!?!? This week is jam packed with amazing music every where, every night from here to well into next week. We even have a holiday of sorts on Friday to make the music drunker and more enticing. Plus, it’s May, the last moments to stand in the sun without feeling like you might die–though I know some of you are already there. Either way, it’s fine with me, because this week rocks! When & Where: Wednesday, May 3rd, 7:30pm at The Rebel Lounge Reasons To Attend: Ummm…this...

  • How hard is it to make a flyer? Or some customized image for the event you’re playing, or the poster the venue made for you that looks nice and tight and has all the details on it? I mean, I watch people make this kind of thing in five minutes, maybe ten if they’re picky about the font or the background image. I mean, if you don’t want some striking visual to yank peoples attention, I get it, keeping it all on the low down. Anyway enough of that, here’s the lineup for the shows that look awesome and have...

  • This is another week where folks will be heading out of town for exciting destination like Coachella weekend two, camping up North, or the Miami Loco Festival (see below), but here on the homefront things will be kicking real cool too. There are a bunch of record releases this week, a celebration of some holiday called simply “420″ and Record Store Day on Saturday. If you’re staying in town, it’s gonna’ be a real good time… When & Where: Wednesday, April 19th, 7pm at The Trunk Space Reasons To Attend: Andy Warpigs is releasing a new single and he’s inviting...

  • This week is a strange one for many reasons. There weren’t a lot of shows early in the week, otherwise I would have gotten this out earlier. That said, a lot of people are going to Coachella, including a lot of local musicians I know, then there is a local rockstar wedding that’s taking place in Bisbee which further diverts the crowd and the musicians away from town. Incidentally, it will also be diverting me. That said, the shows that are happening are truly explosive and no less than five record release show, four of which are on Friday. Now...

  • It’s difficult to say if the choices are just as difficult on both Friday and Saturday. For once, both prime weekend nights are jam packed at equal volume. It’s a great weekend and some of this towns biggest names are showing up all over the roster, as well as a lot of my favorites. I may resort to multi show hopping depending on the vibe in the air, but I’ll probably pick one can’t miss show for each night and stay put. What will you choose? Check it out below, it all starts Thurday night at Shady Park and goes...

  • 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...
