Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

This week's music feature is on Bobby Brown's "comeback" with the Heads of State show. This is after he's had time to reflect on his many years of substance and alleged spousal abuse. In the end, the man fancies himself an entertainer. But just how compelling is he these days?

We play a game with Silversun Pickups' frontman Brian Aubert where he finishes our sentences, and we take a look at the acts on the Mayhem Festival.

We've also got show previews for Robert Plant, The Gaslight Anthem, Thrice, Jeremy Kittel Band, and Pinback.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
