Another Bad Religion
In our experience, local bands that promote the crap out of themselves with flier bombardments, MySpace bulletin blitzkriegs, and/or free CD-Rs aplenty turn out to be not so good. But Pigeon Religion, a Tempe-based rock-punk group that personally hands out oodles of fliers and business cards, is worth all of the pulp and pixel hype. The bands high-octane music is generating plenty of buzz in the scene, and its shared bills with some heavy hitters in DIY circles, such as The Mae Shi and White Mice. In early June, Pigeon Religion shared the stage with the one-and-only Mika Miko, so you know these guys are good. For their upcoming gig at the Trunk Space, PR will rip it up with Geronimo and SIHR.
