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

While lots of people are polite concergoers, so many others just don't understand the basics of concert etiquette. Maybe you're that tall guy that blocks the view of shorter people, or you're the wasted guy singing the song at the top of your lungs. There's a reason people are giving you the stink eye, you know. Don't be that guy.

Arizona pop rockers The Maine can now add another project to their list of accomplishments: they've designed and scored a movie. Their short film, entitled In Darkness and In Light, is about young people creating an identity for themselves. Meanwhile, nothing says "awkward" like an old naked guy playing the piano. But that doesn't stop Sweet Pie from doing his thing. He's a 67-year-old boogie-woogie pianist that doesn't give a damn about what anyone thinks of him. 

Plus we've got show previews for Night Ranger, Andrew Jackson Jihad/Destroy Nate Allen, Ruckus, Trapt, The Judds, and Infected Mushroom.

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.
