  • 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.

  • 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...
