Good With Grenades will take a page from fellow popsters The Maine and appear at Desert Ridge's Hot Topic Thursday, July 2. The local band, who are hot off performing at the New Times Summer of Sound pop show last week at the Tavern on Mill and have quickly built a steady fanbase in the Valley, will rock outside the store at 7 p.m. on the District Stage. The guys then will hold a meet and greet with fans inside the store and sign autographs. If you haven't heard the band, check out their MySpace page where you can hear some fun pop-rock tracks and an awesome cover of rapper Warren G's "Regulate." The group will head north Saturday, Aug. 22 for a show at NAU with Cute is What We Aim For on Saturday, Aug. 22 for a private show for the school's Lumberjacks.
