What Laura Says, Gospel Claws, and Mondegreen to Play Fuze Presents: SPLASH Pool Party

Summer in Phoenix means a couple of things. It means burning your soft flesh while trying to buckle your seat belt, it means your energy bill is about to get very, very frightening, and it means there's going to be pool parties. Lots of pool parties.

Promoter Stephen "Psyko Steve" Chilton is hooking up juice-makers Fuze for this year's weekly SPLASH pool party at the Lexington Hotel downtown, and as per usual, some of Phoenix's hottest talent (get it?) is scheduled to perform.

The concert series kicks off with What Laura Says, Gospel Claws, and Mondegreen playing July 9. Future gigs promise shows from Mergence, Snake! Snake! Snakes!, the Blunt Club DJs, Ladylike, and Super Stereo.

The July 9 show only costs $5, and there's a full bar and the Cycle menu. There's not a lot of reasons that justify leaving indoors during July, but booze, bands, water, and food sound okay by me.

More info available at Psyko Steve's official website.
