TOAD, Girls, Gabriel Sullivan & Teraf de Tucson, and More in This Week's Issue

This week in Phoenix New Times (on stands and online now): I hang out at the Palo Verde Lounge with Tempe-based blackened rock 'n' roll sextet TOAD, and discuss the band's righteous Rotten Tide. M.T. Richards chats with Christopher Owens of indie power-poppers Girls, whose unusual religious upbringing informs his strange, androgynous pop. Our Tucson correspondent Eric Swedlund examines the multicultural stew of Gabriel Sullivan & Teraf de Tucson.

There's show previews on sci-fi inspired heavyweights Shai Hulud, Tempe alt-rockers Darkness Dear Boy, vintage songwriter Al Stewart, wordplay wizard Saul Williams, and EDM party rockers Sex Panther.

Yeah. Sex Panther. 60% of the time, they work every time.
