  • Well, the honest answer to what’s going on, is not too terribly much when it comes to local music–and I’m saying this after scrubbing through every venues calendar. Granted, a couple events didn’t have flyers, but still–not a whole lot’s going down. This is par for the course as he try to convince ourselves that Summer ends with August, to fuel our eternal September disappointment. Anywhere here’s where to find those damn jams you crave… When & Where: Wednesday, August 16th, 7:30pm at The Trunk Space Reasons To Attend: It’s AJJ performing an album from their days a decade ago...

  • Been awhile. I needed some downtime and I may take more, but the last couple weeks were literally the “dog days” of Summer and I also have this recent thing where I can’t listen to music. So that’s weird. Anyway, this week is pretty damn spectacular and I’ve included a lot of shows where I only know one band, but lately that’s all it takes before you find yourself loving three new bands in one night. Anyway, let’s check it out… When & Where: Wednesday, August 9th, 7:30pm at Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: If you are looking for...

  • I’m slamming as many shows into this thing as possible, because lately when I make plans the Universe says, no, no, no, just relax or I’ll make you relax. Either way this starts now and goes all the way to next Tuesday to include a couple of shows I wanted to highlight early on next week. I have a lot of writing to unleash this week that I’ve had stored up for a week or two, so hopefully this deluge will make sense in retrospect. It’s a hell of a week for shows, that’s for sure. When & Where: Tuesday,...

  • This is the lean, mean, hungry season here in the Valley of the Sun and there’s a lighter load of shows. I’m going flyer only this week which still has a surprising number of new record releases within it. Either way, there’s a lot of worse ways you can spend the dog days than pursuing the love of live local music. Wednesday, July 12th Thursday, July 13th Friday, July 14th Saturday, July 15th

  • Sorry about missing any Tuesday/Wednesday shows this week, I was taking a bit of holiday myself, I mean I didn’t do anything special, just checked out of local music after seeing three nights of amazing music. Last week I got to see Weird Radicals blow my mind, then Soft Deadlines, Ghost Cat Attack, Danielle Durack and Callie Young give killer performances the next night, then Saturday night was completely lit at Paper Foxes’ pool party with The Stakes, Hostile Work Environment, Mr. UU, The Psychedelephants and more…It was amazing, but the more amazing thing is that kind of thing happens...

  • Ah yes, we are in the thick of Summer now. The shows thin out a little bit, but folks are still releasing albums and EPs and even a cassette here and there. If you’re a true desert dweller, the heat won’t stop you from heading out to shows once the air becomes tolerable and the radiation from the streets and sidewalk have receded a bit. Plus, amazingly enough, all of these venues feature air conditioning. Shocking! Any check out all these groovy things happening… When & Where: Thursday, June 29th, 7pm at The Listening Room Reasons To Attend: I spent...

  • Strictly Flyers! Or fliers if you prefer. Either way there’s too much to do, no time to sleep and the impressive combination of migraine and sweltering heat is getting to me. If you have a really cool show that doesn’t have a flyer, make a flyer and let me know. There were a few that sadly did not. I can post them on the fly pretty easily when I’m not yakking your ear off about why yo should attend. Here we go… TUESDAY, JUNE 20TH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21ST THURSDAY, JUNE 22ND ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ FRIDAY, JUNE 23RD SATURDAY, JUNE 24TH SUNDAY, JUNE...

  • This will be a flyer only edition because, though I am strong I am tired. I had a non-stop weekend and rolled right into this week of madness full tilt. That said, if your show isn’t here, it probably didn’t have a flyer, check it out, there are a ton of new music releases between now and when the weekend ends.

  • It’s definitely Summer. To celebrate that fact I’ll be playing chauffeur this weekend as my lady love entertains crowds in Bisbee and Tucson. That said, I may have some lingering feelings of missing out on a few shows. The good news is that you don’t have to feel that way, because unless you have travel plans, there’s a ton of great shows to catch this week and some amazing highlights during the weekend. Check it out below! When & Where: Wednesday, June 7th, 8pm at Pho Cao Reasons To Attend: Pan Complex is from Texas and I want to say...

  • Letting the dust settle from the holiday a bit, but not for too long before this week get’s crazy. We leave may and launch into the June inferno, only able to celebrate at night with live local music as our soundtrack. It’s really not a bad way to be. There will be more shows added as we head into the weekend I’m sure, but for right now, this is the damn impressive lineup we’ve got working.
