  • Club Candids: Elevated Music Festival
    There were all sorts of 4/20 shenanigans going on in Phoenix last weekend. An event didn't necessarily need to be marijuana themed to be fun, though it didn't hurt. It was merely a coincidence that The Elevated Music Festival fell on 4/20, but that didn't stop guests from wearing pot themed...

    Last night's Feist show was excellent. Leslie alternated between beautiful whispers and melodic shouts. She delivered every note with a sort of gentle, delicate power. The crowd at Orpheum Theatre was in constant awe of her enthusiasm and her signature charming in-and-out sound. And her three...

    Wet Electric could not have happened at a better time of year. It's warm enough to wear a bikini but not so warm you have to run for shade, and the event occurred in the midst of a bunch of great concerts. The banana loving electro Swedish duo known as Dada Life played to a packed wave pool...

  • Florence + the Machine at Comerica Theatre, 4/20/12
    Florence + the Machine at Comerica Theatre. When I streamed the band's Coachella performance last weekend so I could get an idea of what to expect when they came to Phoenix, I thought, "She's great, but something about the performance is kind of weird." To hell with those thoughts! Last night,...

  • Andrew Bird at Mesa Arts Center, 4/18/12
    Andrew Bird has a fan base, the dedicated, serious, and loyal kind. The average listener has maybe heard one of his songs in the John C. Reiley-starring flick The Promotion, or maybe they have heard the beautifully orchestrated song of whistles on the soundtrack of the newest Muppets movie. But...

  • fIREHOSE and M. Ward at Crescent Ballroom, 4/17/12
    Following fIREHOSE's blistering set of punk jazz, I was almost worried that the hushed immediacy of Portland-based singer/songwriter/producer M. Ward would suffer by comparison.
