Wait, repeat that: Were you considering not going to see Wavves at The Rhythm Room tonight? Really? I'm so sorry... that you're a total fucking idiot.

Admittedly, I'm sort of a Wavves fanboy at this point, having written a column kinda-sorta about the band that quoted one of their songs in full and all that, but I've also seen them live and been blown away. Perhaps you, in your foolishness, don't hear the pure brilliance of this band, the joyful hooks just below the surface of their distorted noise-pop. In case that's the problem I'm posting the above video of the band playing "So Bored" acoustic. Maybe that'll help you figure this shit out in time to not miss this show.

Wait, you're going to Matt & Kim instead solely because it's free? I guess that's OK then.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
