Valley Fever

When we heard about Yucca Tap Room's Valley Fever on Sunday Nights, we were intrigued -- and not just because it shares its name with our news blog. Valley Fever's resident DJ Dana Armstrong spins old country records between live bands' sets. Meanwhile, country and western acts from around the state of Arizona perform onstage.

The main part of Yucca is filled with classic country fans of all ages and backgrounds who aren't afraid to shuffle and spin around the dance floor. The occasional hipster on his way to the bathroom from the other half of the bar will get sucked in to check out the country scene and bands. Dust off your cowboy boots and throw on your favorite denim. This place is where rolled up jeans and plaid shirts aren't some hip trend, but real down-home classics.
