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

This week's music feature is on Meat Loaf. The chatty singer just released his 11th studio album, but had lots to say on other subject matters as well. Like for instance, what he would do differently if he were president. (Something rockstars consider often, I'm sure.) He dishes with us on SB 1070, music critics, and lots more.

Ever wonder just what happened to Hot Hot Heat between the time that they were signed to Sub Pop and showed so much promise until now? Have they lived up to their full potential? We'll give you our take.

Also, Jay Bennett gives us his perspective on the new Interpol record. (Our resident aesthetic atrophist didn't think too much of it.)

Plus we've got show previews for Eric Lindell, The Ataris, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Gary Hoey.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
