  • Getting this out a little late this week, which I suppose is better than not getting this out at all like the last two weeks. Regrets? Maybe a few, but hey, I do this for free so that you can give your money to the musicians that make your ears fire up. Anyway, check this out, because there’s a lot of cool stuff going down over the next four nights, some of it costs money, some of it is free, some of it you’ll hate and some you’ll love. Enjoy it while you have it, whatever get’s you going…a lot...

  • Well hot diggity damn this is a stunning week that marches directly into next week while gently stepping over Sunday. Never fear, I’m sure a Sunday show will pop up in the next few days, maybe Andy Warpigs will play. Either way, I’ve included next Monday here because I’m planning on catching those shows and this will be the only chance to put them on blast. That said, we’ve got at least three record release shows scattered about, mostly on Saturday and all with impressive lineups.  Also, imagine below that “Other Details” is “Reasons To Attend” and vica versa, I...

  • Let the cavalcade of release shows get into full swing! This is a hell of a week to start doing just that and there’s at least three of them and so many more in the weeks ahead. This is a great week all around with some amazing lineups and once more Saturday will be a bear to decide and Friday isn’t too easy either. Overall it’s a pretty fine balance. Check out the action below… When & Where: Tuesday, January 10th, 8pm at The Rebel Lounge Reasons To Attend: Note to self, check out Thurston. I remember catching them once...

  • Diving right into the new year with a stacked lineup of fantastic shows. I’ve had some previews of what’s in store for 2017 and at least the music will be completely amazing. There were a ton of late year record releases last week and only one to speak of so far this year. That will change quickly. Also, it’s one of those weeks where a whole bunch of great things are slammed into Friday night, while merely sprinkled about the rest of the weekend. It’s a new year and the same old you, but you could check out more local...

  • It’s an interesting week with Christmas falling right on Sunday, which makes everything weird and as cool as it is to have Christmas on a Sunday if your into that sort of thing, it kind of wrecks the flow of a Phoenix weekend. Plus, most people don’t get a workday off, so that sucks to. What doesn’t suck is the amount of great music happening all over the place every night of the week, except Saturday. Yes, there are shows on Christmas, but this may be the first time in a long time that nothing is going down on a...

  • This week is unreal, which is why I wanted to get it out as early as possible. The weekend is still a bitch decision wise, but not the trainwreck it was last Saturday. That said, with the strange exception of Wednesday…there are just good shows to see, there are fan-freaking-tastic shows to catch all of the other nights this week. I begin where I ended last week. Believe this many great shows is stressing me out too–I have to carefully schedule my writing regiment this week so I can go out and have some fun watching all the bands I’m...

  • As promised this is late this week, because of the shows I highlighted on Monday and Tuesday, last week. I wanted to still get this out earlier, but it’s  a pretty forgiving week in that there a nearly twenty fantastic shows and almost all of them are being held on Saturday. It happens at least one week a month and this is that magic week where you might actually stay home because it’s like picking which child is your favorite. Seriously, I wish there was a way to avoid this, but it’s been a tradition in the local music scene...

  • I somehow thought a lot more was going on this week than is actually going on, but there’s plenty going on even with that in mind. The weekend will be filled with difficult decisions, you may be allowed to rest on Sunday, but then killer shows kick right up next Monday and Tuesday. I included those as well, because my life will be consumed by end of the year lists at that point and I may not get to post a preview for those shows because I’ll either be writing or at those shows or something occurred out of normal...

  • I took a few weeks to work on other projects that I didn’t work on, wanted some time to not think about music and found myself thinking about music, tried to cut down on going to shows and ended up going to a lot of shows, so that was all quite silly in retrospect. I’ve tried to collect the best of the best for this week and while there is nothing going on Thursday for some odd reason, every other night this week is packed with amazing live and local music. Check it out below… When & Where: Tuesday, November...

  • This was the week I wasn’t going to write about music and being sick on Monday, made me think that dream would happen. Then I fell into the Stevie Nicks show, then I thought of an article, then I found a bunch of cool songs to write about…anyway, I ran out of time to do this proper. That said here is the full flyer array of shows I highly recommend and had to give at least a shout out to if I can’t deliver the full treatment. I learned this by watching YabYum! Here are my picks for this wonderful...
