After hosting radio shows (The Bungalow Show’s YabYum Hour, Rise!, and The YabYum Hour) on Radio Phoenix for 5 years, Senior Editor’s Mark and Carly have handed over their reigns to a new batch of hosts as the good times continue. Before they departed hour however they threw a three-hour long radio show spectacular and invited a bunch of YabYum Staff and family down to the studio to celebrate…Read More →

say what 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen – In the span of a tumultuous four years, I’ve found my life-path joyfully, yet exhaustively consumed by the world of music journalism. While there is no shame in practicing your passion (even if it means cramming yourself into someone’s living room with a used Nikon andRead More →

not your shadow 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

In the Phoenix music scene I am always fascinated by artists who push themselves visually and add components not normally related to their genre. Although costumed performers and DJs can be found within the electronic music industry as a whole, there’s many electronic artists in Arizona who have yet to take that step in their branding.Read More →

real dom 700

When Dom Rabalais or “Real Dom” from Iowa made his appearance at Aaron Ponzo’s Soda Review hosted at The Trunk Space on along with Bxnshy, Curt Oren, Belly Eater, and Yipee!, I had no idea what I was witnessing…Read More →

coffee pot 700

What and who the hell is Coffee Pot?

For the past few months, I’ve closely followed a musician’s Twitter handle of unknown origins, like Rumpelstiltskin approaching me with a weary bargain, a strange-yet-endearing EP under the title of Anthrophobia ended up getting shoved into the back of my inbox until I felt fully in control of my rapidly-decaying cognitive abilities. Containing the Latin prefix “anthro”, meaning human, how could I resist a short five-track romp with the theme of “human phobia?” I hate humans, and you should too!Read More →

smiling faces 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

Although I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Oliviero and Michael Oden from The Smiling Faces and, more recently, of Vintage Clothes, I didn’t get the chance to listen to their August-released LP, Don’t Ever Talk to Me Again, until recently when frontman and guitarist Eric Gallagher brought it to my physical Facebook-attention. The album, which makes me feel like Dave Grohl in “Walk” both musically and lyrically, contains vocal chaos among smart, instrumental qualities Frasier Crane could enjoy…Read More →

dadadoh wowee 700

On the evening of a chilly Phoenix Friday on January 11th, I meandered myself to a very early 2019 “large scale” local performance featuring the celebration and album release of Bryan Preston’s vigorous and aurally diverse project, DaDadoh. Along with performances from 2000 Ft. Turtle, Acne Superstar, Room 4, Latosque, and 20 Ft. Neon Jesus, the night which partly rivaled last year’s Crispy Fest featured a full-scale DJ performance in between sets by DeeJay P-Phunk, tacos, live artists, and vendors at the Pueblo Revival…Read More →

doomsday in december 700

I began attending drag shows this past year part-time, but outside of taking photos and drunkenly enjoying the also-intoxicated antics of acts like Lady Christian, I felt like I couldn’t miss the opportunity to cover the December 18th DoomsDay in December w/ Doom Family event hosted by The Queer Agenda and featuring Arizona drag staple, Carnita Asada…Read More →

tryb 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

In the afternoon of late November, I drove up to Scottsdale to interview Garrett “Tryb” Namenye, a DJ and producer based in the Valley who has not only opened for substantial names, but managed to build a strong, interactive following with bass-heavy music and inventive branding. While most DJs hide behind various personas and ego barriers, Tryb is managing to break these artificial walls by staying true to his work and gearing down on the nitty-gritty aspects of his career and family…Read More →
