Incoming: M. Ward, Snow Patrol, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks


Ward's sound varies from reverb-drenched acoustic blues to shinning pop. Plus, if a performance from Ward doesn't inspire enough excitement, the recently reformed fIREHOUSE opens the gig.

M. Ward, Snow Patrol, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and other artists will be showing Phoenix what they've got over the next few months.
