Treasure Mammal is one of those bands that you have to see live to fully understand. Words can only go so far to describe the performance art, interpretive dance, and random nods to pop culture that make up a Treasure Mammal show. This is the type of band you want to say represents the Phoenix local music scene half in anticipation for a reaction, and half because it’s fitting.
Shows at small venues like The Trunk Space, Last Exit Live, Meat Market Vintage, etc. do represent Phoenix culture, especially when a band as eclectic as Treasure Mammal takes the stage. Phoenix is kind of weird, and there’s something special about watching a show with 20-40 other people. Read the full Treasure Mammal review here.Photos by Melissa Fossum
