What can we say? We're suckers for a good cause. Hoodlums Music's Art Rocks! event is certainly a good one. The indie record store is teaming with Arts Council for Youth, Marcos de Niza High School, Kyrene Middle School, and the City of Tempe for the Saturday, December 10 gig, which combines arts, crafts, and music from Marcos de Niza and Kyrene School District students.
Large Marge, a '60s-inspired combo, are all students at Seton Catholic High. Ricochet Reloaded, a "blend of rock, blues and alternative," recently competed in Alice Cooper's: The Proof is in the Pudding finals.
The festivities are scheduled to go down on Saturday, December 10, from 6-9 PM at Hoodlums Music, with all proceeds benefiting the art & education programs in the Tempe Union and Kyrene School Districts.
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.
