Good Question: Daughters Bring Their Raucous Energy to The Rebel Lounge

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…

Josué Kinter Fuses Bandit Country, Gothic Americana, and Western Jazz on ‘Summertime Demos’

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

When I last caught up with Josué Kinter, it was under more awkward pretenses as I covered the slightly bombastic Endless Bummer 3, hosted by Bloody Basin. In the review, I not only mischaracterized certain roles within the band, but there were moments when my mind was overwhelmed with condensing absolutely everything I saw. Since his band Hex Wave happened to be second-to-last on the lineup, I’m sure there was some degree of disconnect in my mind after spending a considerable amount of time in the late summer heat…

The Damned Deliver a Stellar Set at Marquee Theatre

by Tom Reardon

When a bunch of old dudes completely school the opening acts at a punk rock show, it gives one hope on multiple levels. Sure, the old dudes in question are The Damned and they are legendary, to say the least, but when you hear they’re coming back to town just a little over a year after playing probably the best set they have ever played in Phoenix for their 40th Anniversary tour last May, it’s only natural to be a little skeptical about what their performance at the Marquee Theater would hold…
