Apache Lake Music Festival, Blitzen Trapper, Chico Mann, and More in This Week's Issue

Get ready for our very own Coachella this weekend. Well -- not really. As Christina Caldwell's feature explains, Apache Lake Music Festival isn't quite the same thing as that fest, but it does feature over 30 of Arizona's best bands in a remote setting.

We've also got shorter features on Blitzen Trapper,  focusing on the road ready Americana of the band's excellent record American Goldwing, and an interview with Chico Mann of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, who spends his solo time rocking an infectious blend of Afrobeat, Latin, and hip-hop sounds.

Check out short previews on Tech N9ne, Lindsey Buckingham, The Music of Lord of the Rings in Concert, Avenged Sevenfold, New Found Glory, and Red Light Disco

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
