Don’t miss tonight’s AZPunk benefit show

By Benjamin Leatherman

Labor Party rocks out in their video for “Black Arm Band”

We've kinda had something of a contentious history with the folks at AZPunk ( over the past few years. The misfits and miscreants who populate the local Web site's notorious message board have been known to rip us a new one for any number of reasons (such as slamming us for covering local musicians or scenesters that they feel don’t deserve any ink). But just like parents of naughty little children, we love 'em all just the same, which is why we wanna plug tonight's AZPunk Fundraiser at the Wok Star, the rock club inside Scottsdale eatery Chop & Wok (7136 East Shea Boulevard).

The site apparently needs some extra dough, so they’re throwing a benefit for themselves featuring performances by local punkers Labor Party, Family Secret, and Blemish. The gig gets going at 9 p.m. and admission costs $6.
