Friday, January 11: Rough Tough Dynamite @ Trunk Space There are plenty of ways to show someone that you think they're sexy. Some methods are subtler than others, but Rod Stewart wants ladies to be direct and just reach out and touch him.

Tempe rockers Rough Tough Dynamite take a culinary approach with their synthed out surf cover of "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?," which they did exclusively for Up On The Sun.

"Maybe baked goods like cupcakes," bassist Corey Dillier says, on how fans should show their appreciation of Rough Tough Dynamite. Band members listed things like candy, chocolate, Fruit Roll Ups, and bread with ranch, but ultimately singer and synth player Alex Benson says, "We're not picky."

The band tried to come up with a few covers, but Rod Stewart was a good fit.

"This is an exclusive. We haven't played it live yet, hopefully we'll add it to the set very soon, but this is the first time we've gotten it out there," Dillier says.

"We're really curious what people think of us as far as how attractive we are. It's a way to ask and just be like 'oh, we didn't really want you to answer' if the answer's a bad one. No, we're just singing the song. But if the answers are good, then that works. We can get some self-esteem, finally," Benson says with a laugh. -- Melissa Fossum
