burgandy jurk 700

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

On Friday, June 28th, I made an eventful return to the venue where I covered my first local event review for YabYum: the prolific and punky Rip’s Bar of Phoenix. Like my visit last year, the bar remained frozen in time, with its regulars lining up for a night of “rock and excitement” headlined by buRgandy juRk, with support from Critical Miss, The Maybe Next Years, and El Googly Diablo. Or was it two years ago? That two-year binge period felt like I was frozen in carbonite…Read More →

And she can do it all with coke bottle curls and a gold sequin dress. Jen Holiday pairs vintage style with post-human rage. That has “tastemaker” written all over it.

architects 700

by Jacob Unterreiner

At its height, music is a monument to emotion.

You can use words to express powerful emotions, but a sentence or two can never capture the scope of a feeling. Language alone, to some degree, is always minimizing the intensity of an emotion. Music, however, can capture how big a feeling feels–it’s a large part of the reason we make it. We say to ourselves, “My feelings are so big, that they deserve more than words, they deserve a song.”

Architects’ new album, Holy Hell, is a monument to a pain too large to simply be talked about. It is a a monument to a pain that needs to be screamed into microphones and battered into drums.

I spoke with bass player, Ali Dean, about the new album and how the band has moved forward after the death of founding member Tom Searle…Read More →

daughters 700

by Jacob Unterreiner

In 2003, Daughters played a show at the Mason Jar (before it became the Rebel Lounge). They were opening for Dillinger Escape Plan. Daughters’ drummer Jon Styverson recalls, “I remember the line to get in was wrapping into the street. I don’t know why it was in the street, but it was, and a car came by and hit like 4 people. It was terrible. After the show, I was at the merch table and these four kids came up to me in bandages, with blood all over their shirts–they’re the ones who got hit. They got released from the hospital and came right back to the show.”

This story tells you all you need to know about Daughters; they have fans who get hit by a car before the show starts, go the hospital, and manage to make it back in time to catch the set. It is not a leap to say the music Daughters makes is the soundtrack to brushing off the blunt force trauma of a car accident…Read More →
