GWG have been gradually building up steam in the AZ and have made a name for themselves locally, often packing their shows. The guys played last month on the New Times Summer of Sound bill alongside Jim Adkins at the Tavern on Mill. FBGM is a follow-up to the group's EP Identity, which they released last year. Want to hear some of their new tracks live? Check 'em out at the Venue of Scottsdale Saturday, Aug. 8 alongside Rookie of The Year, Hollywood Heartthrob and Nylon Pink for an all-ages show. Tickets are available on the band's MySpace page.

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.
