Groovy Train

In the scientific world, the endoplasmic reticulum is a microscopic membrane located inside our cells, helping us to live and thrive. In the musical world, however, Endoplasmic Reticulum is helping the nightlife scene in the sleepy East Valley city of Mesa to live and thrive. Host Kevin Gordon (a former Mojo Farmer) and members of such local jam bands as Gelatinous Groove and Badshoe get together for a four-hour session of freeform and experimental rock and funk music for granola munchers and other Deadhead types (read: dirty hippies) to enjoy.
Thursdays, 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Starts: June 14. Continues through Dec. 6, 2007
KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
