D-JR, Hemoptysis and Landmine Marathon, and More in This Week's Issue

J.R. Phillips, better known as D-JR, is on the move to Los Angeles in hopes of an even brighter future as a DJ. He's been spinning his way to the top spots of many notable DJ competitions, which have been landing him some big gigs. Even though he has already gained quite a following in the Valley, D-JR's fellow DJs feel that he has definitely earned a spot on the L.A. scene, so perhaps he will indeed make it big there.

Local bands Hemoptysis and Landmine Marathon are bringing their metal madness to Tempe this weekend. The two top metal bands in the Valley are looking forward to finally playing a show with each other. While Landmine Marathon has already released three albums, Hemoptysis will debut a handful of new tracks from their first album at the Clubhouse on Friday.

Plus we've got show previews for Greeley Estates, El Ten Eleven, Bitter End, and Purple Reign.
