That Damn Show Schedule: Bad Religion Headlines Resurrected Alt-Rock Show

That Damn Show, the Phoenix music institution most likely to lead into an extended, vulgar Abbott and Costello routine, is less than a week away: On Saturday, Bad Religion and 11 other local and national bands will file into Mesa Amphitheatre and play music that is probably going to be really loud and really fast.

(Full disclosure: Our name is on the poster. New Times and KUKQ are presenting That Damn Show together. Dan Moore owns one share of AAPL, he thinks.)

Mesa Amphitheater.


Noon. The bands will be spread between two stages, but be honest with yourself: You're going to need to block out a full afternoon of alt-rock space for this.


The 30-year punk vets of Bad Religion top a bill that includes AWOLNATION, Tiger Army, Face to Face, The Faint, Fenix TX, Passafire, HB Surround Sound, and Bend Sinister, along with local artists Katastro, The VeraGroove Nomada, Bad Lucy, and Phoenix-based DJ William Fucking Reed.
