Creosote – February 4th, 2008

Fronted by longtime Tucson musician Jason Steed, Creosote epitomizes the dusty americana sub-genre that many like to refer to as “desert rock.” Their sound is reminiscent of other rock-n-country locals like Greyhound Soul and Fourkiller Flats, but also calls to mind great national acts like Slobberbone and Wilco. Creosote has one full-length album, Blacksmoke, to… Read more »

I’ll plagiarize myself when summing up Forth Worth… in a blog post earlier this year, I stated: To the best of my knowledge, Fort Worth has only played one or two gigs in the entire 2 years of their existence. So if you don’t see them tonight, I can’t make any promises about when you’ll… Read more »

Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout – November 12, 2007

Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout have been entertaining Tucson music fans with their shock and awe campaign. The “awe” comes courtesy of proggy rhythms and hyperactive vocal stylings that fall somewhere between Mr. Bungle and Captain Beefheart.

Mozart’s Sister – October 15, 2007

In Tucson’s alternative rock music scene, dominated by male-fronted bands, Mozart’s Sister provides a breath of fresh air.

If you missed their recent appearance… Read more »
