    Sara Robinson and The Midnight Special Know Their Musical Roots

    It's been said that in order to truly sing the blues, it's necessary to have experienced a lifetime of blues material -- a broken heart, tragedy, hopelessness.

    Our 10 Favorite Metro Phoenix Music Venues

    It's a hard pill to swallow, but music venues in the Valley tend to come and go. Fact.

    Eastbound & Down: 13 Killer Songs Featured in Season Two

    "If at first you don't succeed then maybe you just suck."​ I hated Eastbound & Down when I first started watching it.
