    Blacc Hitla? Whateva!

    I'm trying to count the ways that local Westside rapper Cballa annoys the shit out of me. Let's start with calling your record Blacc Hitla. Because I'm a writer and by proxy an aspiring grammarian, the misspelling bothers the shit out of me. Now, I u...

    Foxy's Ladies - Lollypop, making your heart go giddyup

    "What do you think of my yuppie douchebag shirt?" My buddy B-Boy is modeling for me in my living room. He's draped his 6-foot-4, 350-pound frame in some black dress pants and a collared, button-down shirt. He's shaved his head so it's all smooth a...

    Sheer Samson - Canadian redemption with The Weakerthans

    Call him the John Darnielle of the North. Like the Mountain Goats' songsmith, John Samson of Winnipeg, Canada, has a high, reedy voice, modestly folk-inflected sound, and a keen lyrical wit. Samson played in the early '90s with political punkers ...

    Brick-a-Brac - Weekend warm-up at the Brickhouse

    Alas, the constant search for the best party in town can be a little exhausting. Sometimes, Club Candids needs a quick break from the saturated scene. This week, we decided to hit up one of our favorite local venues, The Brickhouse Theater, on Thursd...

    Coma Little Bit Closer - San Antonio's Girl in a Coma could be just the r'n'r we need

    Since its inception, reality TV hasn't brought us much in the way of realism. Someone who wouldn't normally nosh on a plateful of live Madagascar hissing cockroaches breaking down and chewing on a few shouldn't fall under the "reality" category just ...

    Big on Japan - Maja gives anime and gaming a good rap

    It's a Saturday afternoon, and the Atomic Comics location in north Phoenix is a hubbub of rampant geek activity. Dozens of nerds of varying ages and belt sizes mill around the store looking for back issues of the Amazing Spider-Man, trading gaming ti...

    Georgie James - Places (Saddle Creek)

    Georgie James is a duo specifically, the pairing of John Davis and Laura Burheim. Like The Turtles, they are so happy together, or at least it sounds so. Each of the 12 tunes here draws from the peak pop music of yesteryear, when cheerful songs lik...

    The Premiere - London Paris New York (self-released/thepremieremusic.com)

    Phoenix has a hot hip-hop scene, so to say that The Premiere's debut album is the best new local CD to hit P-city streets this year is really saying something. And we are saying just that. Three years in the making, London Paris New York is a monster...

    Greyhound Soul - Tonight and Every Night (re-silence Records)

    Tucson's Greyhound Soul blends rough vocals, country twang, and straight-ahead rock with a twist of the blues. It's like hearing the child of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Hans Olson, the Pistoleros, and one of the small, unknown band...

    One of the biggest surprises of the past few years is Christian metalcore act Underoath, who've sold almost a million copies of 2004's breakout underground hit, They're Only Chasing Safety, and its gold-selling follow-up, Define the Great Line. Almos...

    Jorma Kaukonen

    For good or ill (usually the latter, alas), some associations haunt performers for their entire careers. Del Shannon became synonymous with his biggest hit, "Runaway," and was typecast as an "oldies act." Stevie Nicks will forever conjure visions of ...

    Last Chance Thursday

    It doesn't get any more old school than C.L. McSpadden. In fact, the 36-year-old DJ extraordinaire has been working the wheels of steel since the late '80s (long before some of y'all even knew what EDM was) at bygone Valley hotspots like Club Freedom...

    Cashed

    I'm standing in front of Cash Inn Country on 21st and McDowell, and I'm frightened. I'm scared for several reasons: 1) It's a lesbian bar; 2) I'm wearing a Metallica Kill 'Em All T-shirt; 3) it's a country joint. I use a lifeline and text a girlf...

    It's Not, but It Oughtta Be

    The other afternoon I was sitting in one of my local watering holes and the B-52's "Rock Lobster" came on the satellite radio. I had to walk outside; that song and its ilk turn my stomach and make me puke a little bit in my mouth. Seems like I though...

    Philanthropy vs. Marketing

    Just received a CD and e-mails from the local band Smokescreen, and I'm torn between two opinions about its marketing strategy. I like the band; it sounds like lush late-'90s alt-rock in the vein of Radiohead or the Pumpkins, but not too clone-esque....
