  • 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. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14TH THURSDAY, JUNE 15TH FRIDAY, JUNE 16TH SATURDAY, JUNE 17TH SUNDAY, JUNE 18TH

  • 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. When & Where: Wednesday, May 31st, 8pm at Pho Cao Reasons To Attend: Someone asked me recently why I was so high on Paiting...

  • This is a hell of a week sneaking up on us and it is jam packed with amazing shows every night. Once we get to Thursday it becomes nearly as overwhelming as the Sun and continues into the weekend. Also, if we’re pretty much booking shows on Thursday like it’s the new Friday night, we need to get someone to fix the work week. Someone should check with our robot overlords on that, reason with the machines and argue that we’ll spend more money on our three day weekend if we get the same pay for four. Anyway, this week...

  • Going old school on this one. No commentary. No spoon feeding. Just flyers and shows. The best flyers, the best shows and maybe some that are neither, but these are the infographic tales of where you should seek aural solace for the week. THURSDAY, May 18, 2017 This is kind of a flyer. It’s at the Rogue Bar in case you were wondering. FRIDAY, May 19th, 2017 SATURDAY, May 20th, 2017 SUNDAY, May 21st, 2017

  • 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...

  • It blows my mind that I’ve known The Cherry Bluestorms since the International Pop Overthrow Festival of 2013. I’ve stayed in touch ever since the first time I saw them at the Sail Inn and reviewed their full length record Bad Penny Opera when they returned to Tempe for a set at Long Wong’s during Fairy Bones FBOM at Long Wong’s. How is that for a ton of local music scene history and oft-forgotten lore? They are currently working on completing their third album, which I am eagerly anticipating, because their classicist sense of psychedelic pop and rock drawn from...
