New Issue Lowdown
We can officially look back at 2009 in the dust trail behind us. It's over and done, and we are just finishing up contemplating what the year brought us. For the music crowd, that means a reflection of any and all recordings that made 2009 what it was. Music editor Martin Cizmar presents to us his top 10 list for the year, and sadly, only one Arizona band made the cut. Village Voice music editor Rob Harvilla presents his list too, (with no overlap onto Cizmar's, in case you were curious.) Ben Westhoff poins out to us all of the ridiculous lyrics written in 2009. Hilarious, though not intentional. (We're laughing at them, not with them.) And of course, we do have information about this year as well. Lymbyc Systym is back in town, Stephen Lynch finally makes his way to the Valley, and local youngsters Watchout! Theres Ghosts play Mesa, even if they aren't gramatically correct.
