Four For the Price of Two

Sometimes all you need is two bands on the bill that you want to see. In most of my show going experience, you can tend to bank on a good line up if you like two bands on the bill. I, however, have never gone to a show completely blind, as in not listening to …

The OKC of Punk

It is rare an illness keeps me out of going to see music. Having a cold didn’t keep me from seeing Beck last year. However, when it includes a triple digit fever the body says different things on how long you’re going to make it on your feet. Getting that behind me was a blessing, …

This is my first stab at doing a show update and doing video for the site going forward! I have comments off on the site, but you can always head over to the Facebook page for Every Show Joe to give feedback. For now, I still don’t have time to maintain a regular concert calendar, …

The New Class of Punks

Tonight was a night that I got to check in on how some of the younger music talent is killing it in the local scene. I could put each one of the bands into a different punk rock genre giving a good mix of sounds. They had a solid turnout of the under twenty ones …

The Darts! Snakes! A Birthday!

This was one of those nights with a few music options, but I was looking forward to seeing The Darts in full form. I discovered them through Rikki Styx’s, of the Two Tens and Darts, post on her Instagram. I’d seen the Love Me Nots and Two Tens a couple times just last year, so …

Tonight was another gathering of good friends for music, though this time it was some we don’t see as often. Some Kind of Nightmare has been awesome enough to be coming to Phoenix to play shows and make a lot of great friends in the process. During this time Molly faced one of the biggest …

Not So Aggro

The Aggrolites have a sound that took a little more for me to warm up to a few years ago. They are a ska band with the more traditional, older rocksteady sound. For whatever reason, I initially did not get into them. The first time I took a hard look at their music was when …

Favorite Albums of 2016 From the National Bands

Deciding on a name for this, and how to sort the bands that aren’t from Phoenix, but don’t tour a ton outside of their home towns and states was a little difficult. In the end, I wanted to put an emphasis on the guys from Phoenix so this category covers everyone else. These are bands …

Favorite Local Albums of 2016

People like lists I hear, so I’m putting together two. The first of which is to spotlight some of my favorite music released in the past year in Phoenix that I managed to catch. I struggled to keep it a best of ten, so I made it fifteen. I’m sure it may come to a …

Creepy Birthday To You

Stealing a little lyric from the “Theme from a NOFX Album” and slightly modifying it, Creepy Don is not really so creepy. This was the night to celebrate his birthday though in the most appropriate way, a punk show. The line-up included his band, We Might Be Wasted, amongst a great packet of musicians. Although, …
