    Three-Chord Wonders - Cathartic monkeys bring on the punk

    Having covered music in this town for more than a decade, I see and listen to a lot of bands encompassing all genres, styles, and persuasions, but what I rock and go see for my personal enjoyment is another, more specific matter. A few years ago ...

    Get Lost - Thank you for Leafing

    Our biggest complaint about the First Friday art walks is the lack of venues for getting stinking drunk. Carly's has a huge waiting list, The Roosevelt is packed beyond capacity, and Bikini Lounge's cash machine is usually tapped out by 10 p.m. The s...

    The Back of Love - Lindsey Buckingham has big, big love for his work

    Lindsey Buckingham is an artist. He peppers his conversation with references to Picasso and Pollock. He speaks of sounds as "colors." And like the stereotypical artiste, the Fleetwood Mac guitarist has been characterized as enigmatic, remote, even fl...

    The Mane of Mayer's Existence - Hair today, hair tomorrow

    Whatever your feelings about John Mayer, it's difficult not to appreciate his hair, much in the same way it's difficult not to appreciate Hugh Grant's. Both share the same thick, wavy, dark brown locks that, let's face it, make the lady-folk swoon. F...

    On Keeping Kidman - A star is married

    Actors and actresses have a long history of falling for musicians. But, generally, those musicians are rock stars, sexually ambiguous pop stars, and members (or former members) of boy bands. Country stars used to rank on the "cool list," below white ...

    Traveler - Phoenicia (self-released)

    Who coined the term "world music?" Was it foreigners, resigned to Yankee cultural imperialism, who created it for Americans to signify "music you aren't expected to like"? Or was it Westerners themselves, who like to tap their toes to a snappy melody...

    The Morning Kennedy Was Shot - Pictures of Things Worth Looking At (self-released)

    There's a hippie hiding in here somewhere. Behind the dreamy, intentionally off-key harmonies, under the shuffling, soft snare drums, inside the closet with the plucky guitar that's trying to fade out of all the songs, there's something very sloppy-'...

    Jefferson Airplane - Sweeping Up the Spotlight: Jefferson Airplane Live at the Fillmore East 1969 (RCA)

    More than the Grateful Dead, San Francisco's Jefferson Airplane defined the summer of love's hippie ethos: lysergic lyrics ("White Rabbit"), an anti-authoritarian, us-versus-them attitude, and sonic eclecticism (rock, folk, jazz, blues, and world mus...

    Sage Francis - Human the Death Dance (Epitaph)

    Of Rhode Island MC Paul "Sage" Francis' fourth solo album, Filter magazine wrote, "You can call it emo or you can call it hip-hop." (Cue the sound of squealing brakes.) Huh? Francis may have been a member of Midwest emo-rap group Atmosphere, but ther...

    Number Sine - Pita mingle

    Effortless projects seem to be kissed by fate, just like the newly released EP by local indie-electronica trio Number Sine. Formed after a chance meeting at Pita Jungle, and signed after sending out only one CD, they're gearing up for a national tour...

    The Wreckers - Girl group goodness

    Stand Still, Look Pretty is an apt title for pop-country duo The Wreckers. Not only are Michelle Branch and her former backup singer, Jennifer Harp, easy on the eyes, but their lilting, almost childlike harmonies are gorgeous. With practically interc...

    Unsane - Heavy fuel

    Reality does bear out this theorem: The smaller the band, the greater the intensity. Trios have generated some of the loudest, most intense, most volatile squall: Cream, Blue Cheer, Minutemen, Painkiller (John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and ex-Napalm Death ...

    Everyones a Fucking DJ - Rotating like volleyballers

    Dive In - Introducing your guide to skeevy pub-crawlin'

    On a recent Thursday afternoon, disgruntled by the heat, Phoenix drivers, and the smell of my pants, I drop my Boston terrier, Murray, at home and high-tail it to a small bar in a strip mall marked by a fuzzy neon orange-red glow. I arrive at the ...

    Thugs Life - Those who can

    Judging by the malevolently eager look on his face, whatever Dale Fox of Phoenix band World Class Thugs has been keeping in his trunk for the past six months promises to be good. It is. It's three oversized masks of World Class Thugs singer Jocelyn R...

    Hot in the Shady's - Location, location, location

    We remember back in the day when Shady's had a different name and was full of bearded, blue-collar workers guzzling beer to wrap up a hard day's work. Not so much any more with its new name and new jukebox, the little neighborhood bar has become a ...

    Make Like Morrissey - Passion show

    Morrissey, England's most dapper downer, isn't quite as depressed as he used to be. In fact, he almost seems to be enjoying what he does these days. Nevertheless, the guy is still as press-shy as ever and just can't be bothered to pick up a phone to ...

    The Men Behind the Man in Black - A tip of the high-hat

    Why on Earth would anyone want to see Johnny Cash's backing band without Johnny Cash? It's a fair question, perhaps even necessary, given the Man in Black's hallowed status. Cash's music meant so much to so many that it would be easy for former bandm...
