Incoming: Meat Puppets, D12, The Jim Rose Circus, Sunny Day Real Estate
In Phoenix, there ain't no cure for the Summer Time Blues, except the sweet relief of fall, and the much fuller concert calender it brings. We're finally through the super lean times, show announcement-wise, and looking forward to better days. Much better days, actually: Local sons The Meat Puppets will be playing The Marquee in mid-September and The Jim Rose Circus with Jake "The Snake" Roberts comes through hat the end of that month. Just think about that for the next month or two.
