The Maine, The Tubes, and More in This Week's Issue

This week's music feature is on The Maine's rise to success, all the way from the networks of MySpace to their major label signing and $38 keepsake albums. Their adaptability has allowed them to chart and headline. And it doesn't look like the power-pop force is gonna be on the decline anytime soon.

Robert Pela takes a look at one of the most famous, and misunderstood, bands in Arizona's history. The Tubes were parodying themselves long before it was fashionable to do so, and the "glam rock refugees" moved through many incarnations in their long history. We'll lay it all out for you.

Plus we've got show previews for Artists for Action, Slayer/Megadeth, Green Day, Soulfly, Charlie Daniels Band, and Stan Ridgway.
