  • Well, the shows have been just as good for the last couple weeks as they were at the start of January, I just had too much other things to write about to squeeze this in.

  • Here is another week filled with shows from end to end. One nice detail about this week is there are a lot of charity shows, which means you can see some of your favorite local bands AND make a difference by choosing your show wisely. I wish there were more of these type of events throughout the year, but the holidays are an important time to give to those in need. When & Where: Tuesday, December 8th, 8pm at Crescent Ballroom Reasons To Attend: Sean Mullaney put out a bang up EP this year, I just saw Dylan Pratt last...

  • The good news is that there are a lot of killer shows. The bad news is that due to the holiday, they are all pretty much on Wednesday night, with a few conflicts on Friday night and one big show on Sunday night. That said, I’ve made my choices out of the plethora of options on the two big nights below. I think Saturday I may have a second Thanksgiving since there doesn’t seem to be anything going on, oddly enough.

  • Well, this week is out of control crazy when it comes to catching local live music. So much so that this will be divided into two posts: this one is about all the shows at indie venues around town, the next one will be covering all of the festivals going on between Mesa, Phoenix and Bisbee. Seriously, if there is one weekend where you could legitimately spend the entire time with live music, this is it. It’s also curious that this is the weekend that nearly everyone decided to throw a festival in one way or another. Let’s get to...

  • Last week had a stunning array of shows that I wanted to preview and cover all over the place, but apparently, every odd year I am plagued with bronchitis that week and I was unable to do any of that. Nevertheless, this week has an exciting slew of shows right from the start. Things get heavy on Saturday and I’m sure there will be some late announcements that will get added later in the week. In the meantime, here’s what the live, local music forecast looks like right now. When & Where: Monday, October 12th, 7pm at The Rebel Lounge...

  • Well, it actually appears there aren’t a lot of shows this week. That said, all the shows that are happening are pretty great and they start tonight. I will add more as I find them if there are more to find. In the meantime, check these out, at least the decisions will be easier to make this week. I’m not sure that will be true the rest of the month.

  • Is this the week where it all begins? The never ending fury of amazing shows that fill every venue every night? Yeah, this might just be this week. I even had to roll into next week to cover all the happenings on Monday, because I knew I wouldn’t do it on Saturday night. Anyway, this is a stunning week with far too many choices. I keep looking at the roster and I can’t make a decision about where I’ll be on any of these nights. It’s a bit overwhelming. Just have a look at all that’s going on… When &...

  • It’s a little light this week, but that’s probably good, because it looks like the rest of the month will be an explosion. If I find more entertaining music events this week I will add them as I go. In the meantime, please check out these gems. There is not a disappointing set found below. When & Where: Tuesday, September 1st, 8pm at The Rebel Lounge Reasons To Attend: The Woodworks will supposedly be slightly reconfigured for this show, mean while they will be supported by an amazing lineup. I would highly recommend you stay late to catch Hostile Work...
