A Little Taste of Americana

It has been longer than I like to go between posting shows. At the volume I attend, this thing just piles up. Unfortunately, the day job that has funded this for four years has let me go. The past couple weeks have been applying to jobs and getting used to the additional stresses. I want …

Good Vibes and Good Causes

After a full day of Warped Tour, would you go on to do two days of two shows? Some people may say no. For me, the answer is a yes. This may be how I earned the nickname that spawned this site. Although with it being a Saturday, I got a full night’s rest. I …

The Good Folk

There’s nothing like good folk and acoustic music. Tuesday night was a mix of some I’ve seen before, and some I haven’t, expanding the list of musicians I like. I discovered Ike Fonseca and Ghost in the Willow, and catching the talented Chip Hanna and Leonhardt once again. Opening up was Leonhardt, who from the …

The Bierman Band

It would appear I know a lot of Gemini that love music. This time it was my friend, Josh Bierman, performing with his band for his birthday. He assembles a great amount of talent with him too. Some amazing drummers, some talented saxophonist, and Evan Berg sang some too. While nights like this are more …

Guitar Party Power, Confirmed!

Bob Log III is a musician I have somehow missed seeing. He comes from Tucson, so he is nearby and plays Phoenix often enough to catch. He was on a club show that I attended on the inside stage of the Bunkhouse, during Punk Rock Bowling. I somehow missed him then too. Not sure how …

The Ska Prom and a Spring Fling

Spring is a time where the temperatures in Phoenix would be summer time for the rest of the country. Growing up here I’ve become acclimated to it, making it just a great time to get outdoors. With it brings the celebrations and the prom seasons too. This Saturday night was a combination of both for …

A Hodgepodge Reward of Music

Locally you tend to see some band mixing on the stages when they share shows. However, it usually is to tracks those bands already perform.  What if you took twenty five members of twenty five local bands, put them into a lottery to make five bands, and had them write and perform three songs plus …
