    Underoath

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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....

    Flying Feathers?

    Attitude Adjusting - Playing "straight to the middle"

    One of Jim Louvau's favorite talking points when making a case for his new band The Attitude is the void to be filled because there are no more new rock stars. And he's right. If you want cocksure swagger and violence, rappers have that segment fully...

    Not Dead - Riverboat Gamblers frontman Mike Wiebe counts his blessings

    Whatever animates Riverboat Gamblers lead singer Mike Wiebe, the audience is giving him a wide berth lest it prove contagious. Dragging the mic cord like a lifeline, Wiebe climbs on tables, mounts structural supports, and hangs from exposed pipes w...
