Pop-rock AZ boys Good With Grenades will be playing an early show Friday at downtown Scottsdale's Martini Ranch (7295 East Stetson Drive). The group will be playing with locals Hollywood Heartthrob, Idle Red and Lyra the Harp for this 21-and-older performance. The show starts at 8 p.m.
Good With Grenades is quickly becoming one of my favorite local acts. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, surf their MySpace where you can hear fun rock tracks like "Pop Lock and Drop Dead" (my personal fave), "Bruises and Bitemarks" and a sweet cover of rapper Warren G's "Regulate." Let us know what you think.
