Punk In The Arizona Waterpark

I have spent over a year watching live music through a computer monitor, my phone and occasionally on my TV. Due to the spread of Covid 19, live events were put on pause to try to reduce the spread. While for me, I have enjoyed the live streamed events and the more intimate interactions I have got with musicians it just wasn’t the same for many. It wasn’t the same as the energy you get from a room of friends made through the love of belting those lyrics back at…

A Miles to Nowhere Practice

The past over ten months has been the longest I’ve gone without physical live music in over a decade. It has been a more insular time as trying to quarantine due to Covid 19, mask up when I go grocery shopping or anywhere near others, and where we have had to go to other outlets to get that music fix. For me, that outlet has been the thousands of musician and concert streams that have been organized or simply on a whim gone live the past ten plus months. One…

Favorite Musician Discoveries of 2020

The understatement for a lot of us is that the year 2020 has been mostly downs with a couple ups. I’m here to help improve that with awesome artists I have discovered through the year. A couple of the musicians on the list were before quarantining and lockdowns, but they count in my book. Majority I found through the past eight months of livestreams and streamed concerts. I know for many of you, it is a lukewarm prospect to go watch these streams while you miss the live experience. However,…

Photo Gallery: The Avengers at Wooden Tooth Records

I’ve been sporadically digging into my photos, discovering ones that may got lost in the shuffle of everything I do. That was usually do to how much I ran around and tried to take photos before this pandemic put a stop to live shows for the time being. However, there was a cool event at the Wooden Tooth Records in Tucson that I never got around to posting. I actually stopped there to catch the show on my way to the SidePony Festival in Bisbee. They had the legendary Bay…

Photo Gallery: SkaterCon 5

SkaterCon 5 marks the last live music I was able to capture before we all went into self-quarantine mode. For that, I am happy because it stands one of my favorite events in Arizona. It is wonderful that it was able to go off without a hitch once again this year. That is from the professional skaters to the skating competitions to the live music, it is an excellent amalgamation of things coming together for the sole goal of celebrating skating. This year brought music from McRad, 16, Boneless Ones,…

Getting the chance to…

Photo Gallery: Escape From the Zoo at Big Surf House

What a time to start getting caught up on photos I have taken. Right now we are show less live, but plenty of online streams by a lot of our favorites.

In town, we had the Folk Ska Punk band, Escape From the Zoo. Joining them again on this tour would be Marissa, Jesse Sendaja’s sister, solo and this time with additionally with her…
