Devon Kay and the Solutions Delightful Desert Stop

Eclectic is defined as “composed of elements drawn from various sources.” It tends to be descriptions of the weather in Denver and my music tastes. Similarly, it can be used to describe the bill that assembled at Yucca Tap Room with Devon Kay and the Solutions. Just to touch on how eclectic it was, the night of music included the ska offerings of Bowcat, the punk funk of Okinawa Plane Crash, and the indie rock sounds of Celleste. The four of them combined with what I call the Indie Punk…

Long Covid at One Year

It is now one year since I first felt the fatigue, thinking it might just be part of a light hangover. Three days after that, it was joined by sinus symptoms and a positive Covid test confirmed. A negative test on July 13th, but the fatigue continued. Twelve months is a long time to be stuck with a change in how one’s body works. That my constant feeling of weight under my eyes, brain fog when pushing through lighter activities too long and, what I started calling, that “brain melting”…

Apes of the State Down in the Underground

Three years ago, things had ground to a halt as we worked to slow the spread of a newly discovered virus and waited for science to bring solutions while we tried to mitigate the worse of it. It meant we had a lot more time for finding music, whether it was new to you or just in general newly formed. Between the many livestreams that musicians had turned to and just looking at the “You may also like” sections of music services, it felt like I stumbled onto a treasure…

Looking Back: Teek Hall and Open Mike Eagle

Welcome to a potential series of post going through old concert photos that I may not have posted or perhaps were posted by only the artist previously. This is born out of long haul Covid, and the chronic fatigue it has caused me, continuing to handicap my ability to get out like I used to. So while stuck home more right now, I can highlight more of my favorite musicians I have managed to see live and capture that maybe not everyone saw the results of. In this case, I…

A Sunday Night with Anti-Flag and We Are The Union

Since my long haul Covid has continued to keep me struggling with chronic fatigue, I started to set positive goals. Positive motivations for things I will do once this symptom is finally gone. However, this symptom has kept going and talking to my doctor we cannot pinpoint when exactly it will end. Despite that, time progressed toward one of those goals. That goal from the tour announcement was to get out to Anti-Flag with We Are the Union and Doll Skin and hopefully get to photograph it too. In that…

A Zona Night with AJJ and Veronica Everheart

They say the universe works in mysterious ways. If you’ve been following me, I’m on a now five-month journey of experiencing long Covid and chronic fatigue. So, about a month ago I received an email about doing possible photos for this show and responded if I felt better, I might be able to at this Zona Nights show. Zona Nights the name for club shows playing around the inaugural Zona Music Fest. I am not exactly feeling better, but last week I received an email saying I’m approved. I thought…

Making Twenty Five Look Magical

There are life’s moments that are absolute in needing to celebrate. Moments that show how magical it is when two people come together and over the long stretch continue to show that magic. For two friends, Jason and Marla, this night at the Trunk Space was a celebration of their twenty fifth wedding anniversary. With their love of one another, the festivities brought that together with their love of local music. For the intimate occasion, they invited a few of their local favorites, Wallace Hound, Spicy Mayo, and this mysterious…

Photo Gallery: Overstand at the Beast

Last month I grabbed my camera and ran over to the Beast in Tempe to capture a band called Overstand. The Beast being the nickname for the venue that doubles as Cornish Pasty in Tempe. Overstand is an East Coast Hardcore influenced band made up veterans of the Phoenix punk scene. On lead vocals you got Ben Barnes of Broloaf and Eye Rake more recently. Over on bass, Roy Valencia of way too many to name including Broloaf. Todd Hamilton of Broloaf and North Side Kings over on the guitar.…

Bowling for Soup and Less than Jake Tag Team The Marquee

Epic duos persist throughout pop culture. Rick and Morty, Joker and Harley Quinn, Pinky and the Brain, Jay and Silent Bob, and so many others over the decades. That brings me to the peanut butter and jelly of epic duo tours, Bowling For Soup and Less than Jake. The pop punk and ska punk staples are together for a west side run of the U.S. bringing the awesome pair of Cliff Diver and Doll Skin with them to the Marquee Theatre this past Friday. Up first was a band known…
