    Portugal the Man brings its unique psychedelic boogie improv to Phoenix

    The John Butler Trio

    The John Butler Trio is one of those jam bands that inevitably ends up compared to acts like, oh, John Mayer, The Dave Matthews Band, and Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. In the band's native Australia, it's more likely that those other guys ge...

    Anal Cunt

    Anal Cunt has got to be the only "joke band" that's still recording and touring 20 years after its tongue-in-cheek (and anywhere else you can imagine) genesis. Since playing its first show in the Newton, Massachusetts home of founder Seth Putnam's mo...

    It's ironic that consistency, longevity, and predictability have come to be the hallmarks of "true punk," but that's where we are more than three decades after Johnny Rotten blew his nose all over those things. As Jello Biafra recently sang, there ar...

    The Boss Martians

    What do you call a pretty good surf band that suddenly drops the hodad act and discovers a gift for raw, catchy rock 'n' roll tunes? The Boss Martians, that's who. Like any good power-pop band, the Seattle group is in touch with its record collection...

    Sludge metal pioneers, The Melvins, are still doing things their own way on Nude with Boots

    In a parallel universe that gets everything wrong, Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover would be capping the Melvins' first quarter-century mulling over whether to wear tuxes or L.A. Dodgers jerseys to their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Mel...

    The Cramps - Bad Music for Bad People (Fontana A&M)

    While surf-punk bands like Agent Orange had punks hitting the beach in the '80s, psychobilly outfit The Cramps brought a darker, sexier side to surf music, as singer Lux Interior flexed his vocal muscles, all Elvis-on-acid-like, over guitarist Poison...

    The Wizards of Time and Black Carl explore the life aquatic at Hotel San Carlos' Star Swim

    On a recent Friday night, I'm sitting poolside on the rooftop of the Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix. I've got an ice cold Kiltlifter in one hand, a Marlboro in the other, and an earful of local prog rockers The Wizards of Time, who are playing ...

    Sugar High - Let the Sunshine Out (Thousandaire Records)
