Mouse Powell, Dengue Fever, They Might Be Giants, and More in This Week's Issue

In this week's issue, we take a look at the rise of Phoenix rapper Mouse Powell. He's new on the scene, only releasing his debut full-length Where It's Cloudy late last November, but he's quickly made a mark on the scene. This weekend he brings his laidback, jazzy sound to Tempe Tavern, where he'll perform with Brad B. and The Foundation, who will be performing the classic Drifter album in full.

We've also got shorter features about Dengue Fever, a band with a unique, Cambodian pop-meets-psychedelic rock sound, and They Might Be Giants, who despite having been at it for nearly 30 years and successfully breaking into the children's music market, are still cranking out tuneful, energetic pop tunes.

Then there's show previews about World/Inferno Friendship Society, Sundown Showdown IV, Twin Sister, Turbid North, and the Powersurge Music Festival.
