Tucson's Golden Boots is one of the finest indie bands in the state, as we've told you before. Unlike a lot of Tucson bands they also occasionally play Phoenix -- which gives them a whole new level of cred in our book. It's cool to see the band land the opening slot for the Dirty Projectors show at Rhythm Room but even cooler to now learn they've got an in-store planned at Stinkweeds record store earlier that afternoon. Be sure to check out their excellent new record Winter of Our Discotheque and, if you get off work early that Monday (show starts at 5 p.m.), swing by Stinkweeds to see them.
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.
