MegaRan, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, blink-182, and More in This Week's Issue

You'll find this week's issue wrapped up in our annual Best of Phoenix special. This week, Chris Hassiotis takes us into the world of teacher-turned-rapper MegaRan, who is taking the world of nerd-rap by storm. We've also got short features on blink-182, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who are scheduled to help break in new venue Crescent Ballroom, and show previews about Viva Voce, Blondie, The Zombies, ZZ Top, Incubus, and Sophie Gunn.

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

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.
