Truckers on Speed to Play Two Shows in Mesa This Weekend

Tempe's countrified punk-rockers Truckers on Speed have two big performances in Mesa this weekend. The guys will share a stage with Tempe rock guys Dead Hot Workshop and Los Guys at Mesa's Goathead Saloon (1423 S. Country Club Drive) on Friday and will take part in the AZ Bike Week festivities with a show at Chester's Harley-Davidson (922 S. Country Club Drive) at 3 p.m. Sunday.

We recommend hitting up the Goathead show to get a taste of some of Tempe's finest bands who have been truckin' (pun intended) along now for more than 10 years. Plus it's a good opportunity to check out the Goathead Saloon if you haven't been yet. The Mesa live music venue, formerly Friendly's Irish Pub, is a hidden gem in our music scene and has been booking some of AZ's best acts for the last year.
