Million Dollar Quartet Rocks The Phoenix Theatre Company’s Hormel Theatre

Million Dollar Quartet is a jukebox musical based around an unplanned 1956 jam session between Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Jerry Lee Lewis. They converge at Sun Studios in Memphis for different reasons, and the result is rock and roll history. It is ultimately Sam Philip’s story. The record producer who discovered them serves as the imperative narrator who ties the unwoven pieces together…

2000 Foot Turtle 700

2000 Foot Turtle, Spectrum Hues, Lo Temps, + Olympic Games Make for an Unforgettable Night of RocknRoll

by Logan Lowrey-Rasmussen

On Friday, April 12, I pushed my body closer to its limits as I decided to cover two shows in a row. With just 24-hours preceding my review of Sunday At Noon with Almost Awake, Arlington, and HeadStrum, I realized this was a show I would have to compromise my mental health for. Not only was 2000 Foot Turtle scheduled, a personal favorite of mine, but the mysterious Spectrum Hues I hadn’t seen since my early days in photography last year dictated the final decision of my attendance. Aside from fresh punx 2KFT, groovy jam-band Spectrum Hues, and “modern psychedelia” LoTemps, this would also mark the very first performance of local self-described indie punk “ear candy,” Olympic Games — what a low-key clever name to spot on a flyer…

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)…
