Sunday at Noon “Bring The Thunder” with Almost Awake, Arlington, + Headstrum at The Rebel Lounge

Since I reviewed Sunday At Noon’s Beat Up & Bitter album, I’ve been trying my damnedest to explore even a fraction of the Phoenix rock community outside my average drag, indie, and punk circuit. I always seem to fall victim to my taste-related loops, but on Thursday, April 11, The Rebel Lounge introduced me to a fresh community of hard-working artists and dedicated concentrations of fans supporting the alt-rock they love. Presented by Atlas Artist Group, Sunday At Noon kicked off their “Bring the Thunder” joint-tour with Vegas-based Almost Awake, Arlington from Southern California, and Queen Creek hometown heroes, HeadStrum (in place of All New Hopes)…

Music Video Premiere: “Rear Sector Movement” by Not Your Shadow [premiere + interview]

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.

Coffee Pot: ‘Anthrophobia’ [album review]

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

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!

The Smiling Faces: ‘Don’t Ever Talk to Me Again’ [album review]

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…

DaDadoh + The POC ‘WOWEE’ Album Release Party at The Pueblo Revival

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…

DoomsDay Does Drag in December: A Review

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…
