Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Last year Kid Rock headlined Tempe Music Fest. This year he's headlining Country Thunder. Is it just me or should the two festivals, which took place the same weekend last year, definitly not have this much in common?

Country Thunder does bring us Willie Nelson on Saturday, but that's barely enough to make up for the fact that Water World star Kevin Costner and country music's very worst musical personality, Big Kenny, are on the bill. The full scheduled, announced eariler today, is on the jump. I don't see myself driving to Florence for this unless it's for Willie.

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.
