The Bloodshot BeerBQ Rocks Tempe on October 24



For Bloodshot Records' 15th anniversary, or quinceañera, if you will, they're throwing themselves a little party. So far, that party has stopped at 10 cities across these United States with plenty of BBQ, booze and tunes to satisfy the most nomadic and hungry of folk punks. At Tempe's Sail Inn on October 24, party goers will don their final hats and toot their final horns.

From the Bloodshot roster, the lineup boasts Exene Cervenka of the seminal L.A. punk outfit X, who recently let loose with her first solo record since 1991, titled Somewhere Gone. The Silos, who recently appeared at Tucson's HoCo Fest, throwback baby Justin Townes Earle, Waco Brothers, Mark Pickerel & His Praying Hands, and "break yer heartstrings singer" Rosie Flores complete the bill.


The first 100 attendees get free grub, and tickets are $5. Be sure to arrive early: doors open at 4 p.m. and music starts at 5 p.m.
