Playboy Manbaby Announces 10th Anniversary ShowLocal indie/punk band Playboy Manbaby turns 10 years old in 2021 and is planning a big blowout to mark the occasion. On Friday, September 3, they’ll stage a concert and "multimedia extravaganza" at downtown Phoenix venue The Van Buren with the help of their friends and fellow musicians.
Frontman Robbie Pfeffer and the rest of Playboy Manbaby are tight-lipped about what the show will entail, stating on Facebook that it “will be real weird and real fun” and not saying much else. Based on the band’s penchant for colorful antics (check out their TikTok for evidence of such), we’re guessing it will be memorable. Local geek rapper Mega Ran and bands Together Pangea and Okilly Dokilly will open. Tickets are $10 to $25.
Blossom Playing LollapaloozaLocal electronic dance music DJ/produce Emilie Fromm, who performs as Blossom, is in for a busy summer. Besides spending time in the studio laying down tracks, she’s got several gigs over the next couple of months, including performing at one of the biggest music festivals in America. In late July, Fromm will head to Chicago to play this year’s Lollapalooza at Grant Park. It’s her first time appearing at the legendary summer festival, which will also feature sets by Illenium, Miley Cyrus, and Arizona’s Jimmy Eat World. Fromm is scheduled to perform an early afternoon slot on Thursday, July 29.
Dann G. to Play Phoenix Suns Watch PartyWhile the Phoenix Suns will battle the Los Angeles Clippers during Game 3 of the NBA Western Conference Finals on Thursday at the Staples Center in L.A., their arena in downtown Phoenix will be packed with fans. A “Road Game Rally” will take place that night at Phoenix Suns Arena, offering locals the chance to cheer on the team while watching the game. And local rapper Dann G. will be there to help get people fired up.
Earlier this year, the Suns tapped Dann G. to create the track “Rally the Valley,” which is inspired by the team’s slogan for this 2020-21 season. It’s been played before every Suns home game as part of the team's hype video and has even gotten airplay on local radio stations. On Thursday night, Dann G. will perform the song during halftime set at the “Road Game Rally.” The event starts at 6 p.m. and admission is $10 per person.
